Claims Against The Co-op
Do you work for the Co-op or are you an ex-employee or customer who has suffered an accident whilst in store? If you have been injured due to an accident, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
It doesn’t matter whether you were a customer, employee or contractor, if your injuries were caused by working conditions and failings in health and safety by the Co-op or negligence on their part, then you could be eligible to claim compensation.

Co-op Accident Claims
As a company, the Co-op has a duty of care towards all their staff and customers. This means 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 may have to pay the compensation.
At Jefferies, we have expert personal injury solicitors that can help you claim compensation if you have been injured at the Co-op. We are a highly regarded law firm and have won thousands of work injury cases, providing compensation for our clients.
Our clients often receive compensation pay-outs for store and warehouse injuries. What’s more, we offer every client a no win, no fee service, so you don’t have to pay upfront to make a claim.
If you do have grounds on which to make a Co-op injury claim, we will let you know how much compensation you may receive.
Types of store and warehouse injuries
Co-op stores are potentially very hazardous environments to work in. Serious injuries can occur if the Co-op does not maintain proper standards of health and safety.
Some of the common causes of injuries to staff and customers include
- Slips, trips and falls from spillages
- Car park injuries
- Food health and hygiene illnesses
- Falls from ladders
- Manual handling injuries
- Racking and storage injuries
- Working temperatures injuries
- Objects falling – if boxes and equipment are stored on high shelves and not properly packed away, they can fall, causing injuries
- Exposure to harmful substances – harmful chemicals can be used in warehouses, either for cleaning or other purposes
Some of the common Co-op injuries 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
- Food Poisoning – From out of date food or lack of health and hygiene controls
