Accidents in Supermarkets and Shopping Centres

The owners or managers of supermarkets and shopping centres have a responsibility to ensure they’ve taken all measures possible to make shopping in their premises as safe an experience for the public as possible.

But sometimes, things go wrong and shoppers are injured in these premises. In fact, thousands of shoppers suffer injuries ranging in severity while out shopping every single year. And in many cases, these accidents could have been prevented.

Types of Accidents in Supermarkets and Shopping Centres

Accidents in supermarkets and shopping centres include some of the following:

  • Tripping on a slippy floor
  • Falling over something left in a public walkway
  • Something falling on you from a shelf or similar

These are just 3 examples of many possible types of accident.

What you should do

If you have suffered an injury as the result of an accident in a supermarket or shopping centre, there are some things it would be helpful to do immediately after:

  • Take photographs of the scene or ask someone else to if you can’t
  • Take contact details for people who witnesses the accident in the shopping centre or supermarket
  • Report the accident to management within the supermarket or shopping centre

That’s not to say that you cannot make a compensation claim if you did not do these things. But of course, the more evidence you have, the more helpful it is.
