It was still wet when the manager and I walked around.

 

 

Thank you all for your help.

 

 

I will write to the manager asking for the cctv footage if it's available.

 

 

It has been really helpful getting different views

but really should the sarcastic so and sos be posting if they can't be objective and non judgemental?

 

 

I will let you know how it goes.

Thank you.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

If it gets slippery shouldn't they have warning signs

 

My local shopping centre has warning signs everywhere even the escalators have a speaker that says " warning floor is slippery "

 

The walkway floors is like what you find inside of buildings like the trafford centre , west quay ect

Pose a letter, and post up on here if you wish for others to have a look at and advise accordingly.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

There was a case won by someone a few years ago who slipped on a wet floor, they had signs up saying slippery and the judge said that was an admittance and made an award to the girl that slipped.

I have known 2 rational intelligent people, who would not be the type to seek compensation for accidents, look to take legal action against supermarkets as they have broken arms slipping over. For some reason, people think supermarkets should be liable inside and outside them. In both cases they consulted Solicitors who advised against it and it was not pursued. There was just not enough evidence in either case that the supermarket had failed in any duty of care. One case was a slippery floor inside with a wet floor sign. The other was outside, where snow was in he process of being cleared.

We could do with some help from you.

But signs outside in a ar park? Surely a common sense approach is needed?

Of should the supermarket have to put signs in the car park saying floor is wet?

I understand inside the store, but outside?

 

The Occupiers Liability Act would extend to the underground car park under the supermarket.

 

It matters not that the accident was not inside the store itself.

That's the key, what evidence is there that the supermarket has a reasonable system of inspection/cleaning/maintenance etc.

 

If they have no systems in place then the supermarket is liable.

 

The OP will only know this once investigations have been done and the supermarket has disclosed it's records.
