Compensation for Slipping on a Grape in Selfridges

Am I eligible to claim compensation for slipping on a grape in Selfridges?

You may be able to claim compensation for slipping on a grape in Selfridges if you can prove that your accident was the result of the negligence of a supermarket employee. If you can prove that Selfridges – which like most businesses owes a duty of care towards its customers – failed to put in place adequate measures to ensure your safety in its supermarket, you may be entitled to claim for compensation.

Before gathering evidence to prove that Sainsbury’s was at fault for your injury however, you should ensure that you receive proper medical attention for your injuries. Ideally you would have summoned an ambulance to take you to the nearest hospital’s Accident and Emergency department as soon as the injury was sustained. If not, you should visit A&E now or make an appointment with your local GP.

Once you have done that you can begin collecting evidence. As the accident occurred in a supermarket it is likely that the incident was caught on CCTV; this may be useful evidence and should be obtained as soon as possible as some supermarkets reuse tapes, meaning that if you wait too long the footage of your accident could be taped over. Photographs of your injury may as also be useful, as would an accident report made in the supermarket’s Accident Report Book. You should speak to a solicitor about any other procedures which may need to be taken in order to pursue a successful claim for compensation for slipping on a grape in Selfridges.

A solicitor will be able to tell you if you are entitled to compensation and how much you could be awarded. It may be possible for you to claim for assistance with your children while you are recovering, for example, or for the loss of amenity which is preventing you from participating in the activities which you normally enjoy. To find out all you need to know about your claim for compensation for slipping on a grape in Selfridges, speak with an injury claims solicitor at the first possible opportunity.
