Supermarket slip results in £4,000 compensation


We were recently approached by a client who required Simpson Millar's assistance in making a claim after he slipped over and suffered an injury.

Supermarket slip accident

Our client was shopping in a large supermarket when he slipped and fell in an aisle. Our client's path in the shopping aisle was obstructed by a trolley so he had to walk round the side of a fridge. On doing so, he slipped and fell on liquid on the floor and banged himself on the trolley.

Our client suffered a soft tissue injury to his neck, back, shoulder and elbow which lead to an acceleration of pre-existing degenerative changes for 6-9 months.

After his fall, the manager of the supermarket offered him £20 as a goodwill gesture which our client refused. When the claim was made the defendant admitted liability and after medical evidence was obtained an offer was made of £4,000 compensation which was accepted by the client.
