£15,000 compensation won for woman slipping on a grape

A True No Win – No Fee Claim

Ray Hudson, a Personal Injury Solicitor at Ward & Rider Solicitors, acted for Mrs S from Coventry in order to claim for personal injury and related loss.

Mrs S had been involved in an accident when she was a lawful visitor in a local supermarket. She slipped on a grape that was on the fruit aisle floor. The claim was made on the basis that the floor should have been clear of obstructions. Slipping on the grape caused Mrs S to sustain injury.

Mrs S suffered from severe low back pain together with pain to her neck and shoulders. Witness evidence was obtained in support of her case. This evidence was disclosed and the solicitors acting for the supermarket duly admitted liability.

It was important to obtain medical records and obtain a report from a suitably qualified Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon to give an opinion in terms of the symptoms sustained by Mrs S. Due to her age the medical report showed that Mrs S had widespread degenerative change. However our medical expert considered that there was a significant acceleration of her symptoms and associated disabilities.

On behalf of Mrs S claims were put forward in relation to her injuries, the extensive help that she required due to the accident from her husband, and the future help that she would continue to need.

As a result of this, following negotiation, settlement was agreed in the sum of £15,000.

Ward & Rider acted for Mrs S on a No Win - No Fee basis.
