Anyone who has suffered broken bones or other serious injuries from a slip trip or fall in a supermarket can attest to the dramatic change in their lifestyle as a result. The pain is one thing, but dealing with all the little things that were easy before, now become slow, difficult and often impossible. Medical bills mount up and work is disrupted so incomes are affected.
Shopping centres and supermarkets are obliged by law to guarantee the safety of their premises. If anyone has a slip, trip, or fall in any business premises and they are injured there or in an incident or car accident in their car parks, they may be entitled to supermarket accident claims. But what kinds of injuries are compensable? These injuries include:
- Fractures and dislocations
- Skull fracture
- Back or neck injury
- Traumatic brain injury, brain bleed
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, shock, depression, anxiety
- Torn, damaged ligament sprain
- Leg, arm, ankle, shoulder or wrist injury
- Hand and foot injury
- Internal bleeding
