I Fell Over In Tescos Supermarket and Hurt Myself, Can I Claim Compensation?
Sometimes accidents occur when you are out and about, this could be in the street while walking or on your weekly shop at Tescos or another major supermarket. The most frequent accident to occur in a supermarket is a slip on a wet surface. Whether the supermarket has been negligent in such cases can be unclear and at times difficult to prove. The supermarket has a duty of care for the customer and their staff to make sure they do everything reasonably possible to prevent accidents or injuries being sustained while on their premises. If you have suffered a serious injury due to an accident while shopping or working at Tesco we would recommend you seek professional advice from an experienced accident solicitor as soon as possible to find out if you can submit a Tesco accident claim for compensation.
Whether you can make a claim will depend on if Tesco did everything possible to eliminate the risks of an accident occurring, it’s impossible to eliminate all risks and sometimes accidents occur through no fault of either party, simply an unfortunate chain of events. This can make it difficult to prove liability in the event you become a victim of a supermarket injury.
In the case of Tesco accident claims, the first thing to consider is what caused your accident. If it was a slip, was it due to a banana skin, frozen ice in the car park or a milk spillage? And did the supermarket neglect to either mark the hazard or clean it up in a timely manner? If they failed to do anything about the objects that caused your accident, they could be considered negligent. But if the accident occurred due to your own clumsiness, it may be difficult to prove liability.
If you believe you may have a case for a claim, you’ll also need to have seen a medical professional to assess your injuries as soon as possible after the accident occurred. This will later act as vital evidence in any compensation claim to fully understand the extent of the impact the accident has had on the victim’s life.
