Supermarket and Shop Accident Claims

No-one expects to be badly injured while they are shopping but accidents in shop stores are surprisingly common. Shoppers can fall over boxes left in aisles, slip on wet floors or be hurt by objects falling from shelves, and the impact can be severe, causing injury and psychological distress.
