Lidl Accident Claims
Lidl is a popular supermarket chain within the UK that is well-loved for its affordable prices and great customer service. However, there is always the possibility that you could be injured while working in or shopping in a Lidl store. If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault while in Lidl, you could be able to claim Lidl accident compensation.
All businesses, whether they are big international firms or small, singular stores, must protect the health and safety of their customers and employees. Therefore, all stores should have policies and procedures in place to ensure that the relevant health and safety standards outlined by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are upheld.
If you are an employee of Lidl you should have been trained about how to properly follow any relevant safety procedures and how to safely carry out your job role. If your employer has failed to train you and you have been injured as a result, you could be able to file a Lidl accident claim.
There are many different accident types that you could potentially be injured in while in a Lidl store. If you have been hurt while in a Lidl store due to an accident, you could be able to claim Lidl accident compensation. Some of the most common accident types to occur inside a supermarket include:
- Slip, trip and fall accidents caused by wet floors or liquid/food spillages onto the floor.
- Falling items accidents caused by heavy items falling from shelves and hitting someone stood below, whether you are an employee or a customer.
- Crushing accidents – these types of accidents are more likely to impact upon employees who are lifting around stock or opening heavy doors. These accidents are particularly common in the warehouse areas of the store.
- Accidents in the car park – such as being struck by trolleys that are being moved by the Lidl staff or being hit by a car while walking through the car park.
If you’ve been injured in any of these accidents or any other type of accident while in a Lidl store, you could be able to claim compensation. To find out whether your claim is valid and to find out how much compensation you could be able to claim, you should speak to a solicitor directly.
How much compensation am I entitled to for my Lidl Accident?
All personal injury cases are unique and so the amount of compensation that is awarded in each case is also unique. The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are owed. This will usually be determined by undergoing a medical which looks at the length of time the injuries will take to heal as well as their severity.
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. If you have had to pay for treatment or travel to treatment, compensation may also be able to cover this as well.

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.
