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 a supermarket 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 supermarket accident claim.
There are many different accident types that you could potentially be injured in while in a store. If you have been hurt while in a supermarket due to an accident, you could be able to claim 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 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 store, you could be able to claim compensation.

AMOUNT OF COMPENSATION
All personal injury cases are unique and so the amount of compensation that is awarded in each case is also unique. The amount of compensation that is awarded is determined by looking at two specific factors – general damages and special damages.
The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are 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.
Except for children, there is a three-year time limit on making a personal injury claim. This time limit begins from the date that the accident occurred. You should contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible to assess your case.
