COLES ACCIDENT COMPENSATION CLAIMS

Want more information? We’ll call you



    Have you been injured in an accident at a supermarket such as Coles or Woolworths?

    If so, it may not be your responsibility to cover the costs of your medical expenses or suffer financial loss due to an inability to work. We can help you make a personal injury claim and you can receive financial compensation from Coles supermarket. If your accident happened because the floor was not cleaned or an obstacle lay in the aisle, call us to make a compensation claim.

    Woolworths and Coles are two of the largest supermarket chains in NSW, Australia. Coles has over 1000 locations in Australia including supermarkets and petrol stations. They employ over 112,000 people and make an annual revenue of $38 billion. Coles supermarkets try to and usually do maintain a high standard of safety within their stores however that doesn’t always happen. Slip and fall accidents occur often and we are contacted by many injured people from all over Australia. If you have been injured as a result of a slip or fall accident whether you were doing your shopping or as an employee, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    PK Simpson lawyers specialise in slip and fall compensation claims and have helped many individuals win compensation lump sum payouts against Coles Supermarkets Australia Pty.

    Hazards at Supermarkets

    Coles stores are known for fresh produce and packaged food products stacked along clean aisles. Constant re-stocking and cleaning is required. Accidents happen as customers and employees hurry up and down aisles with their eyes up shopping and not looking at their next step. Customers expect the floor to be clean and free of obstacles but this is not always the case.

    Coles supermarkets, like all businesses, have a responsibility to maintain a safe environment.

    What are the potential hazards at Coles supermarkets?

    • Leaking freezers and fridges spilling out into the aisle due to a fridge door being left open or faulty mechanics;
    • Food scraps or debris on the floor;
    • Boxes or bagging left out after re-stocking;
    • Wet floors near entry and exists due to weather conditions;
    • Slippery aisles from package leaks or fruit or spilt drinks;
    • Stray/faulty trolleys and shopping baskets.

    The above situations arise on almost a daily basis in any Coles store and they all give rise to the potential of a slip and fall accident. In many scenarios, parents and the elderly are often victims as they pay attention to their children and are already unsteady on their feet.
