Personal injury claim following public liability accident
We received an email from a Cambridgeshire woman in November 2005 who wanted to pursue a personal injury compensation claim after she slipped and hurt herself in a public place. She believed that she had a public liability case and asked our claim advisors whether she would be eligible to make an accident claim.
The 23-year-old woman told us that four months previous, while doing her weekly shop in her local supermarket, she had slipped on a squashed nectarine in the fruit and vegetable aisle. She put her arms out to grab for something to gain her balance but there was only her trolley which she managed to push away as she tumbled towards it. A man who was standing nearby tried to catch her but he was too late. As a result there was nothing to stop her falling and she landed awkwardly on the hard floor, putting her arm out to break her fall.
The store supervisor saw the commotion and went over to where the slipping accident had occurred to investigate. She made the woman comfortable, called for an ambulance and filled out the shop's accident book while she waited with the woman. The medic suspected that she had sprained her ankle and broken her right arm and took her to hospital to be examined by a doctor.
After a thorough examination and an X-ray it was confirmed that she had sustained a sprain to her ankle and a fracture to her arm which would put her out of action as a restaurant chef for at least four weeks. When the woman spoke to a friend about what had happened her friend advised that she should make a personal injury compensation claim. She offered to have a look online and do some research into what's involved and she passed on our website address.
The injured woman visited The Claim Solicitors website and read an article about our no win no fee policy, which means there is no risk when it comes to making a claim with us.
The supermarket admitted liability for the slipping accident and they offered our client an out-of-court settlement of £7,400 which she accepted and put towards payments for physiotherapy treatment which is proving successful.
