Shopper compensated after slip at supermarket

A woman has successfully pursued a compensation claim with the help of our specialist personal injury solicitors after being injured in an accident at a supermarket.

Took a year to recover

Our client was visiting her local supermarket and was walking along one of the freezer aisles when she slipped on a pool of water which had been left on the floor.

She fell and suffered a painful soft-tissue injury to her lower back as well as damaging her knee. She sought medical help but took a year to fully recover from her injuries.

Staff tried to mop up water with cardboard

Following the accident, she contacted our specialist personal injury solicitors who pursued a claim of compensation on her behalf. Our investigation identified a witness who had helped our client after her fall.

The witness had seen a member of the supermarket staff notice the water on the floor before our client's accident but who had - rather than use a mop to clear the hazard - attempted unsuccessfully to clean up the water with pieces of cardboard.

The supermarket initially ignored the claim, but after our specialists made an application in the Court, liability was admitted and compensation was secured for our client.
