At Aequitas Legal, we have handled many successful supermarket accident claims, meaning we are well equipped to provide advice and guidance that will help you get the compensation you deserve. Our solicitors will ensure that any financial settlement awarded caters to each and every one of your needs, so you can recover with the peace of mind that everything is taken care of.
Accidents in the supermarket can happen for a number of reasons, however, the most common are usually caused by the negligence of management and staff. If procedures aren’t followed, then accidents are more likely to occur. Examples of supermarket accidents include:
Whether you are a customer or worker involved in a supermarket accident, our lawyers can help you make a claim for compensation for any pain and suffering caused.
Supermarket owners have a duty to ensure that health and safety regulations are met in their store by carrying out risk assessments to determine areas where hazards to employees and customers can be minimised. It is also their responsibility to ensure that all staff are trained on the importance of following procedures, such as providing a clear wet floor sign if a spillage has occurred and is yet to be cleaned up.

You have three years from your supermarket accident to make a claim for compensation if it can be proven that it was caused by someone else’s negligence. Compensation can be sought to cover the cost of any lost earnings, medical treatment and rehabilitation therapies. For more information on making a claim, take a look at our guide to the compensation process.
Our team has helped many employees and customers who have been injured in a supermarket accident. We will be with you every step of the way, carrying out the necessary steps to prove who is responsible for your injuries.
The team at Aequitas Legal has many years of experience in handling supermarket accident claims for those who have been injured as a result of negligence. We understand the difference compensation can make to you and your family when you have been forced to take time off work due to an injury.
We believe the only approach to making a claim is a personal one. No two injuries are the same and the same injury can affect people differently, meaning their needs will change. That’s why you will be assigned your own injury solicitor who can work towards your best interests throughout the claims process and answer any questions or queries you might have.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a supermarket accident, we are here to help you make a claim for compensation.

My experience with Aequitas Legal was excellent overall. The process was made very simple and took up very little time on my part, particularly with use of the 'InCase' App and emails. My caseworker, Jane Hargreaves, was very approachable and friendly, and responded to queries promptly. I was expecting my case to take the best part of 6 months to resolve but was settled with my cheque in the post within just a few months. Very impressed at such a stress free and innovative experience and would recommend to others.
