Slips, trips and falls
In slip, trip and fall cases it is essential to ask the right legal question. In these type of claims it’s important to establish the defendant’s duty to provide a reasonably safe premises for visitors, employees or anyone else who might be expected to be there. This can be said for Supermarkets, who have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for their customers too. Unfortunately there are many people who do injure themselves in various circumstances, due to negligence of a third party. There are many circumstances which can result in injuries including:
- Falling as a result of slipping (particularly on spillages from food and liquids)
- Tripping over objects left (for example in supermarket aisles or obscured from view)
Supermarket customers are also frequently hurt by objects falling from shelves or stacks. Serious injuries can result from these accidents and it may be possible to claim compensation for the injury. Each case must be viewed on its merits as supermarkets go to some lengths to ensure that they have safe systems of working together with inspection and cleaning regimes.
