Do you need to make a claim for a supermarket accident?
If you have been injured as a result of an accident in a supermarket you may be able to claim compensation.
Supermarkets are really just large warehouses.
And they are filled with all sorts of potential hazards – poorly mopped floors, spilt products and badly loaded shelves.
So it’s inevitable that these hazards sometimes lead to very nasty accidents.

The law on making a supermarket accident claim
Supermarkets have a legal duty to take care for the safety of their shoppers and their staff.
Under the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957 they have to make sure that their stores are safe for all visitors.
And this duty extends throughout the store and out into the car park.
Have you been injured because of a wet floor or a dangerous spillage at the supermarket.
Or have you been injured by something falling from a badly stacked shelf.
If so you may have grounds for making a claim.
And of course these legal duties apply to the Occupiers of all other shops or public buildings.
