Supermarket Accident Claims
What Is A Supermarket Accident Claim?
Accidents can happen anywhere and in any part of our lives. In many cases, however, there is a responsibility on others to ensure that the environment around us is safe and secure. When we are shopping, whether at a supermarket or any other shop, we are entitled to expect that our health and safety are taken extremely seriously. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, as a wide variety of avoidable accidents can and do occur every day in shops around the country. If you have been injured in a supermarket accident and it wasn’t your fault, you are likely to be eligible for compensation.

How Much Compensation Can I Receive For My Supermarket Accident?
Although we understand why you want to know how much compensation you can receive for your supermarket accident, every compensation claim is unique. The amount that you receive will depend on the exact nature of your injuries and how severe an impact your supermarket accident has had on your life.
Compensation claims can be thought of as being divided into two distinct parts. The first part aims to compensate you for the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of your injuries. Because this is such a subjective thing, the governing body (the Judicial College) has set guidelines for how much compensation should be awarded for different injuries. They provide a range within which compensation payments should fall for each injury, but these ranges are often very wide. This is to allow for the individual nature of your personal injury. Our expert personal injury claims solicitors have years of experience, allowing them to give you the most accurate estimate of where in this range your injury is likely to fall.
The second, and often much larger, part of your compensation claim is to compensate you for any costs, expenses or losses associated with your supermarket accident. The aim of compensation is to give you as close as possible to the same situation as you would have ad if your supermarket accident had not occurred. This means that you are able to claim for any loss of earnings if you are unable to work as a result of your supermarket accident, or even for the loss of the earnings you would have been likely to receive if your injuries mean that you are unable to return to your previous work. You may also be entitled to claim for additional medical support, the help of a carer if this has become necessary and even some modifications to your home or vehicle if they are necessary to allow you to resume the life you had previously.
Working with our dedicated team of personal injury claims solicitors means that you have the benefit of our years of experience, allowing us to claim for many expenses that you might not have realised could be included in your compensation claim. We want to get you the financial support you need to help get your life back on track.
Can I Expect To Get My Compensation Quickly For My Supermarket Accident?
It can be difficult to be sure exactly how long a particular supermarket accident compensation case will take, as some take far longer to finish than others. We realise that it is important to finish your case as quickly as possible, to allow you to put your supermarket accident behind you and move on.
Some cases can be resolved in a matter of just a few weeks or months. These tend to be the easier claims to process, where the other party does not try to claim that the accident wasn’t their fault and where they are keen to agree the compensation amount as quickly as possible. Less severe injuries also tend to be quicker to resolve, as the amounts of money involved are smaller and the other party is less likely to want to put in the additional effort to argue about how much you deserve.
If your personal injury compensation claim is complicated, it can take far longer to be completed. Complicated cases are often those in which it is not obvious who was to blame for your accident, or where multiple different parties share the responsibility. Claims are also usually more complicated if the injuries are very serious, as there may be significant medical evidence to be read and understood before it is possible to agree on a compensation amount.
Is No Win No Fee Available For A Supermarket Accident Compensation Claim?
We don’t believe that anyone should have to worry about how to afford the legal advice thy need to get the compensation they deserve. This is why we offer our services on a no win no fee basis to almost all of our clients.
Working on a no win no fee basis means that we are able to act on your behalf, without you having to pay anything up front. We are only paid once you have received the compensation you deserve for your supermarket accident. Our fees are set as a percentage of your compensation payment, meaning that you will never be left with legal fees that cost more than you receive. You will always be left better off as a result of successful claim.
In a very small number of cases, we are not able to offer a no win no fee agreement. If you are unlucky enough to fall into this category, we will work with you to try to find a suitable alternative funding option to ensure that you can get the help you need with your supermarket accident claim.
If you are considering making a supermarket accident compensation claim, don’t hesitate. Our expert team are waiting to take your call. Call us or claim online and let our expert team of supermarket accident claims solicitors help you with your claim.
If I Lose My Claim, Will I Have to Pay For My Supermarket Accident?
No. You can rest assured that you will never be asked to make any payments for our services if we are unable to win you the compensation you deserve following your accident or injury. This is the most important thing about a no win no fee supermarket accident compensation claim. You will never be left worse off as a result of making this claim and seeking justice
How Long Can I Delay Making A Supermarket Accident Compensation Claim?
The deadline for making a supermarket accident claim following an accident is two years from the date of the accident. Although this can be extended in very exceptional circumstances, almost all cases are resolved within this time limit and exceptions are very rare. If you are approaching this date, it is essential that you contact our personal injury solicitors without delay.
In a few cases, there might be an advantage to waiting before making your compensation claim following your accident. This is usually the case when it is not clear that you have had all of the symptoms that you will experience or when it is not certain how complete your recovery might be. Talking with our personal injury specialists should still be your first priority, however, as we can then give you the legal advice you need to make the best decisions for you.
How Do I Make A Supermarket Accident Compensation Claim?
Making any supermarket accident personal injury claim for compensation follows the same, simple process.
One of the first things to do if you are considering making a supermarket accident compensation claim is to call us or claim online. We will provide you with the support and advice that you need to make sure that your claim progresses smoothly and that you have the highest chance of getting the positive outcome that you deserve.
The first thing we, as your solicitors, need to do is notify the other person that you are making a supermarket accident compensation claim against them. We ask them to accept that they were at fault and we give them a deadline by which they must respond.
If the other side tells us that they do not accept liability (this is known as them disputing liability), we will put together a file of evidence to support your claim. This will include any evidence you have found, as well as anything we gather. It can include a visual record of the event, if one exists, witness statements and expert testimony as to accepted safety guidelines for your industry. Once presented with this information, almost all employers will accept liability.
When we have established with the other party that they were to blame for your accident, we will then begin negotiations to decide how much compensation is fair following your injuries. There are many tactics and techniques used by the other side to try to convince you to accept a lower amount than you are entitled to. Whether to accept or reject an offer of compensation is always up to you, but our expert guidance and advice will allow you to be sure that the amount you agree to is a fair reflection of what you are entitled to.
Sometimes, claims will have to go to court to be judged, rather than being settled in the process described above. This is very rare, but it happens if the other person refuses to accept that they were responsible for your accident, or if it is not possible to agree on a fair amount of compensation. If this happens in your case, we will be with you throughout the process, making it as straightforward and stress-free as possible.

Am I Entitled To Compensation For My Supermarket Accident?
Following a supermarket accident, many people are left unsure as to whether they are entitled to make a compensation claim. There are a few simple requirements for making a supermarket accident compensation claim, but they are very straightforward and most people will find that they do qualify.
The first requirement is that you must have been harmed in some way as a result of your supermarket accident. You can be compensated for any injuries, physical or mental, that you sustain following your supermarket accident, but you are not able to receive compensation for a near miss, where you avoided injury. If you are struck by a falling object, for example, you are able to make a claim. If you narrowly miss being struck because you jumped out of the way, you are not entitled to compensation.
The second requirement is that someone must have been responsible for avoiding your supermarket accident, or making it less serious. For accidents at work, this can be very easy to establish, as your employer has a statutory duty of care. This means that they have a legal responsibility to look after your health and safety. In other situations, the person who is responsible (the legal term is liable) may be the owner of a building, or anyone else who had control over the situation or location.
The person or organisation that you are claiming against must also have been able to predict something along the lines of what happened to you. This does not mean that you have to prove that they did anticipate it, but a reasonable person who was taking their role seriously in terms of health and safety should be able to foresee the danger.
The final consideration is what measures were taken to protect you. If no protective measures were put in place, your claim is highly likely to be successful. If they did take some steps to keep you safe, you may still be able to claim if these were not sufficient, given the degree of risk.
If you have suffered a supermarket accident and you believe that someone else was to blame, we are here to help you put together the best possible supermarket accident compensation claim. Call our experienced team of expert personal injury claims solicitors or claim online today to see how we can help.
What Steps Should You Take Following Your Supermarket Accident?
In the immediate aftermath of your supermarket accident, it is important that you prioritise making sure that you are safe and getting the first aid and medical attention that you need. Once this is taken care of, you might want to consider whether you can take some of the following steps to help support your case if you do decide to go ahead with a supermarket accident compensation claim.
It is vital that you have a clear and consistent memory of what happened before, during and after your supermarket accident. This means that we need to have as many details as possible. Because you never know what the person who was responsible for your supermarket accident is likely to say in their defence, you will want to have all the details to hand, even ones that may seem irrelevant. In order to help you with this. We advise that you write down everything you can remember, as soon as possible after your supermarket accident. This should include all details that you think are relevant, especially focusing on anything that made your supermarket accident more likely.
The next thing to think about is whether you are able to contact any of the witnesses to your supermarket accident. If possible, you should have a list of names and contact details of anyone who saw what happened and anyone who can support your belief as to who was responsible for your supermarket accident. You can ask them to write down what they remember if you wish, but we are happy to do this for you if you prefer.
You may also want to try to obtain photographs or videos which might be relevant to your case, especially of the location in which your supermarket accident occurred, provided it is safe to do so.
