Petrol stations - Icy/dangerous under foot

How does Resolver work?

Explains your rights to you

You'll find no legal jargon in our simple, comprehensive consumer rights sections. Our guidance is tailored specifically for every type of issue.

Helps you prepare your emails

We provide a wide range of flexible email templates for you to adapt to your needs – just slot in the specific details for your case, and in a few short clicks your issue will be ready to go.

Creates a case file for you

Your case file is a secure online location for all important documents regarding your issue. You can upload photos, tickets, copies of receipts or external emails from before you raised your issue with Resolver.

Lets you record all your communications

One of the most important aspects of a complicated issue is keeping a record of all your correspondence regarding the complaint – Resolver does this for you automatically.

Lets you know when to escalate your complaint

If you’re not satisfied with the initial response from the organisation you have an issue with, our escalation process will let you know when you can raise your complaint to the next level of seniority and, ultimately to an ombudsman or regulator, where appropriate.

All petrol stations should be kept in a reasonable and safe state.

If you find the ground slippery/uneven/icy it is important that you tell a member of station staff to ensure it is resolved. If you fall over because of this situation, you should report the issue to the Petrol Station Manager and take photos of where the event happened if you can. If you are not happy with the response from the Station Manager, you should contact the garage via resolver, particularly where health and safety rules may have been broken or you have been injured or you feel the problem could occur again.

In the event that you are injured and are seeking compensation it is likely you will need to make a claim from the bus company’s insurance. Ultimately you will have to seek legal redress via the courts - this is not a quick or cheap option. If you or your personal possessions have been damaged during the incident, then raise this with the bus company’s insurers, but you may also want to see if it is covered on your home insurance policy.

You should know
  • Petrol pumps are checked for accuracy when they are installed and serviced
  • Trading Standards will also check the accuracy of pumps. If you experience issues, you should report the issue to your local Trading Standards. You can do this via resolver
  • All pricing should be clearly displayed to you before your purchase 
  • If you experience any problems, raise them while you are still at the petrol station and take down the name of the person that you spoke with. If your problem is not resolved at the station, you can raise a complaint via resolver
