A Guide To Slipping In Lidl Compensation Claims
Within this guide to claiming Lidl compensation, we will be covering both consumers who are injured while shopping and this need to make Lidl claims, and also employees who have been injured while going about their job, and need to make an accident at work claim to claim accidents at work compensation.
What Are The Most Common Causes of Slip And Fall Claims According to HSE.gov.uk website?
From the point of view of employees, we can see based on the graph above, that slips, and falls are the second most common reason why an employee might need to claim for a Lidl accident at work. Under UK Health & Safety legislation, Lidl is legally required to maintain a safe environment for its staff at all times. Failure to do so will present the staff member with a cause to claim slipped in Lidl compensation.
For more detailed statistics regarding work-related slips, trips and falls, the report published by Statista that this graph was taken from, can be found at the link below:
Furthermore, the Health & Safety Executive has published a set of guidelines for dealing with slips, trips and falls at work, at the link below:
For members of the public who are shopping in Lidl, who have been injured through an accident, for example, they slipped on water in Lidl, then both Health & Safety regulations, and also the Occupiers Liability Act (more on this below) are in place to protect them. If Lidl fails to conform to either of these legal frameworks, resulting in an injury to a shopper, then a valid reason to make slip trip fall claims will exist.
Injuries Commonly Leading To Slip, Trip, And Fall Claims
There are many reasons why you might wish to claim compensation for an accident in a Lidl. Such as claiming compensation for slipping and falling on a wet floor in Lidl. When it comes to calculating slipping in Lidl claims, the severity of the injury caused by a Lidl slip and fall is a major driver. Typical injuries include:
- Bruising, cuts and lacerations – even minor injuries can be painful, and all but the most trivial can be claimed for.
- Sprains – to the ankle or wrists.
- Fractures – to the hand, bones of the foot, ankle, leg, arms or shoulder.
- Head trauma – such as concussion and more serious conditions.
- Compound fractures – especially in the elderly, with major injuries such as multiple fractures to the pelvis.
Who Is Responsible For Slipped On Water In Lidl Accidents And Injuries?
In a previous section, we covered the Health & Safety requirements for Lidl protecting its workforce. If Lidl fails to comply with all HSE legislation, then they will be liable to pay compensation. For example, if an employee slips on a wet floor that was not signposted and hurts their back, they can then make a back injury at work claim. As long as the proper process is followed, such as filling in the Lidl accident report book.
If you were to have an accident whilst shopping, and the cause of the accident was in breach of the Occupiers Liability act, then you would have a valid reason to make a shopping slip trip fall claim.
