Let us take the real example of a “shopper” in South Africa. Our courts have pronounced that Personal Injury law does not require a “shopper” in a supermarket to be constantly watching the floor or whether their footing would be safe for each step they make, and that a “shopper” has the right to move about freely while focusing on their business of choosing the shopping that they require. However, in order to prove the liability on the part of the supermarket it is not necessarily as straight forward as you might think and a number of facts need to be examined in order to prove the shop’s liability.

The crux of a successful slip, fall or trip personal injury claim depends very much on whether the injured party has proven that their individual negligence was not more than that of the supermarket and that there is therefore a reasonable cause for a personal injury claim for compensation for injury or harm. Indeed you have to look carefully at whether the supermarket had a suitable policy and or procedure for dealing with wet or slippy floors as they occur. The quick display of warning signs and notices telling shoppers that they are at risk because of a wet floor or alternatively a policy of the regular maintenance of dry floors by regular cleaning etc would constitute as a suitable policy or procedure for dealing with wet or slippy floors. As you can see this is not as easy as you might think and you should contact us now free of charge on 087 550 4031 your Slip, fall or trip lawyers Johannesburg without obligation to discuss your legal rights at a time that suits you.
