Tesco Accident Claims

As a company, Tesco has a duty of care towards all their staff and customers, whether you are directly employed or an agency worker. This means that they must provide a safe and suitable public space and working environment. If they fail to follow health and safety procedures and this causes an accident, they could be held liable for any injuries sustained and have to pay compensation for their negligence.

At Jefferies, our personal injury solicitors can help you claim compensation if you have been injured at Tesco.

Our clients often receive compensation pay-outs for shop and warehouse injuries. What’s more, we offer every client a no win no fee service to make your claim.

If you do have legitimate grounds on which to make a Tesco injury claim, we may be able to give you an estimate of how much your injuries could be worth.

  • Slips, trips and falls from spillages
  • Escalator injuries
  • Car park injuries
  • Kitchen injuries from hot oil or equipment
  • Food health and hygiene illnesses
  • Falls from ladders
  • Manual handling injuries
  • Racking and storage injuries
  • Working temperatures injuries
  • Objects fallingif boxes and equipment are stored on high shelves and not properly packed away, they can fall, causing injuries
  • Exposure to harmful substancesHarmful chemicals can be used in warehouses, either for cleaning or other purposes

Some of the common injuries that are sustained include:

  • Crush Injuries – From falling objects and racking
  • Back Injuries – Due to manual handling accidents and slips, trips or falls
  • Chemical burns – From employers not providing the right Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and training
  • Heat burns – From oil or equipment

What to do after an accident at Tesco?

  • Report the incident to Tesco so they can make an official record of it in their accident book.
  • Take photos of what has happened-injuries and the scene of the accident.
  • Get the details of any witnesses to the accident.
  • Evidence of a loss of earnings if your injury has resulted in you needing time off work. Documents related to other financial expenditures connected to your injuries may also be required. This could include travel receipts to and from medical appointments.
  • Details of relevant insurance policies you have.

HOW DOES THE CLAIMS PROCESS BEGIN?

At Jefferies Solicitors, once we have carried out an initial consultation, we will take care of the paperwork required to get your case underway.

A letter will be sent to you following an initial consultation with your solicitor. This will be a summary of the meeting you had and will confirm that they are happy to take on your case. It will highlight who will be your contact and estimate how long the process will take. The letter will also detail how you will be funding the case and an estimate of costs. If you need to provide any further information this will also be included.

A letter will then be sent to the defendant, providing details of the accident. The defendant has a fixed period in which they can reply and in their reply, they must state whether or not they are denying or accepting liability for your injuries. If they do accept liability, your solicitor will endeavour to settle the case out of court.

HOW MUCH COMPENSATION CAN I GET?

Every accident and injury is unique and therefore compensation is decided on a case by case basis. The extent of your injuries is the most important factor in determining how much compensation you will be owed.

However, compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work. Your injuries will be assessed by doctors who are local to you.

Our compensation calculator will give you an indication of how much you might be entitled to based upon your injuries. Jefferies Solicitors will take these different details relating to your injury into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded, which will then be put forward to the opposing side and the judge.
