South African courts have pronounced that Personal injury law does not require for example, a “shopper” in a supermarket to examine 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 the business of picking up the shopping that they need. Having said that, to prove liability on the part of the supermarket is not necessarily as clear as you might believe and a number of facts need to be taken into account to prove their 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 negligence did not exceed that of the supermarket and that there is therefore a reasonable cause for a claim. Typically you have to examine for example whether the supermarket had a suitable policy or procedure for dealing with spillages. The quick display of warning signs telling shoppers that there is a risk because of a wet floor or a policy of regular maintenance of dry floors by regular cleaning etc would constitute as a suitable policy or procedure for dealing with spillages.
