In any case, the shop has a duty of care to ensure people are safe whilst shopping on the premises and this can even include their car park. If the shop owners are negligent of their responsibilities then you may be able to make a shop slip compensation claim for your injuries.
Your shop slip accident may be from a wet floor or an obstacle in an aisle or it could even be froma pothole in the car park. One of the most common causes of a shop slip accident is due to a wet floor. A shop has a responsibility to ensure that all spills are cleaned up as soon as possible and to have appropriate signs if the floor is wet.
In the first instance after a shop slip you should seek medical attention if needed. The shop slip accident should also be reported to the store manager or owner so that they can record it in their accident book.
If there were witnesses to the shop slip accident then try to get their contact details. A photograph of the cause of your shop slip accident will also help to build a successful case.
