Our Public Liability team settled a claim for a lady from Benfleet in Essex who suffered an accident in March 2004, whilst shopping in a Tesco Superstore.
It was alleged that as she walked along an aisle within the store where she slipped and fell due to some water which had leaked out on to the floor from a nearby refrigerator.
Our client, who was 27, sustained an injury to her lower back as a result of the accident.
After we were approached by the client, we investigated the circumstances surrounding the accident. It was discovered that Tesco had failed to adopt an adequate system of inspection and cleaning within the store and that if they had the water would have been identified and cleaned up prior to our client’s accident.
As a result of our thorough investigation and evidence, Tesco accepted liability for our client’s accident and £3,710 in compensation was obtained.
