Claims for Being Injured Slipping on a Grape in Asda

What Are Claims for Being Injured Slipping on a Grape in Asda?

If you were to sustain an injury in an Asda supermarket due to slipping on a grape, you may be eligible to make claims for being injured slipping on a grape in Asda. A compensation claim made against Asda for an injury due to slipping on a grape is a legal civil action which can be made against Asda when the supermarket has a responsibility for your health and safety and has failed in its “duty of care” to prevent an accident in Asda which has resulted in you sustaining an injury.

What is meant by Asda´s “Duty of Care”?

In order to successfully claim compensation for being injured slipping on a grape in Asda, it has to be proven that Asda was negligent by failing to identify a grape as hazard and have it removed, and that their negligence in failing to do that resulted in you sustaining an injury. This breach in their duty of care makes Asda liable for your injuries and gives you the right to make compensation claims for being injured slipping on a grape in Asda.

However, Asda´s duty of care is not always “absolute”. This means that if the grape hazard had only recently materialised – such as if you slipped on a grape which had only just fallen from a shopper´s basket – and the Asda staff did not have a reasonable period of time in which to identify the hazard and clean the floor area, it may not always be possible to claim compensation for being injured slipping on a grape in Asda. For this reason, it is always in your best interests to discuss an accident of this nature in Asda with a solicitor at the first practical opportunity.

If liability is accepted, your solicitor will liaise with the supermarket´s public liability insurance company to obtain the maximum possible settlement of compensation for being injured slipping on a grape in Asda.

Consequently, no two injury claims for being injured slipping on a grape in Asda are the same – even when the injuries sustained are identical – and this is a good reason why you should always seek professional legal advice when making a claim for compensation for slipping on a grape in Asda.
