£8,500 compensation for trip in supermarket

Client awarded compensation of £8,500 following a trip at work in a Supermarket.

Mark Watts acted for a client who worked at a leading supermarket.

Unbeknown to our client another member of staff had left a stack of metal baskets in front of the shelves where they were working. When our client turned around to obtain a product from the shelves, the baskets caused our client to stumble. They injured their back and chest as a result and had to attend hospital.

Our client was in considerable pain which was made worse when sitting, standing, walking, bending, lifting or turning. Our client was unable to very much for themselves due to the pain, and required care and assistance from their family for a period until their injuries started to improve.

Compensation was awarded to our client and they received in the region of £8,000.

Our client's name has been withheld to respect their privacy but this is indeed a true case.
