Compensation for Slipping in an Asda Supermarket

I recently slipped and sprained my ankle in a puddle of milk, which had developed below a fridge in my local Asda; can I claim compensation for slipping in an Asda Supermarket?

You may be eligible to claim for compensation for slipping in an Asda supermarket if the puddle on which you slipped was created by a member of staff or if it had been lying there for a significant period of time without being attended to. Your claim for compensation may depend on whether the negligence of a third party was the reason you slipped on the puddle, meaning that you may have to prove that the supermarket failed in their duty of care towards one of its customers.

There is the possibility however, that the supermarket may not be able to be held accountable. If for example, the spill was caused by a customer who had inadvertently burst a milk container moments before you slipped, the supermarket may not be responsible as there would have been no way for them to foresee or prevent the accident occurring. To find out if you are eligible to claim for compensation for slipping in an Asda supermarket visit a personal injury claims solicitor at the first available opportunity.

Your entitlement to compensation may not rest solely on whether or not the supermarket was at fault for the accident. In order to be eligible to claim compensation, you must have received adequate medical care for your injury – ideally immediately after it occurred. Not only is receiving medical treatment immediately after an injury occurs important in regard to your health, it will also provide you with documented evidence of your injury – a vital piece of evidence in your claim for compensation.

To find out more about the steps you need to take to claim for compensation, speak with a qualified injury claims solicitor at the first available opportunity.
