Compensation claims for accidents in shops or supermarkets are brought for a wide variety of reasons. If you’ve been injured due to a failure to properly protect your safety, you may have grounds to make a claim.
Here are some examples of shop and supermarket accidents for which you might be able to make a claim:
Slips and trips : these are some of the most frequent causes of accidents, with examples including spills that weren't cleaned up properly, or an uneven floor surface not being properly repaired or signposted.
The key point to remember is that if the accident was due to someone else's negligence, such as the shop or supermarket failing to uphold safety standards, then you may have a right to claim. Each case is unique, so you should speak to Switalskis to determine if you have a valid claim. We're here to help you understand your rights and guide you through the process.
Understanding your rights is important when you're considering making a shop or supermarket accident claim. In the UK, various laws and regulations protect consumers and guarantee that public spaces, like shops and supermarkets, are safe environments.
For example, the Occupiers' Liability Act 1957 law states that the occupier of a premises - in this case, the shop or supermarket - has a duty of care to keep visitors safe. If they fail in this duty and you're injured as a result, you may have the right to make a shop or supermarket accident compensation claim.
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 may also be relevant in these cases. This primarily focuses on employee safety, but also extends to anyone who could be affected by a company's activities, including customers. Supermarkets and shops must adhere to safety standards to prevent accidents, and if they fail to do so, they could be liable for legal action.
Understanding your rights and the relevant laws can empower you to make an informed decision about pursuing a claim. At Switalskis, we're committed to providing you with the information and support you need to navigate this process successfully.
Gathering evidence is a vital step in making a successful shop and supermarket accident compensation claim. The more comprehensive and detailed your evidence, the stronger your case will be. Here's a rundown of the types of evidence that can support your claim:
Collecting evidence may seem daunting, but you don't have to do it alone. We're here to guide you through each step, making sure you have the best possible chance of a successful supermarket accident claim.
