Woman Receives Compensation After Slipping On Unmarked Wet Floor

Woman Receives Compensation After Slipping On Unmarked Wet Floor

Irwin Mitchell's specialist Personal Injury team has helped a woman secure £3,500 in compensation, after injuring herself in a local convenience store.

Our client, Miss F, was browsing in her local shop and as she was leaving via the foyer area, she slipped on the floor and fell to the ground.

The floor was wet due to the wet weather outside, however the shop owner had failed to display any warning signs of the wet and dangerous floor, or provide any matting at the entrance.

An Orthopaedic Surgeon confirmed that Miss F had fractured her right wrist during her fall. The store owner admitted liability for Miss F’s injuries under The Occupiers Liability Act (1957) and Irwin Mitchell successfully helped Miss F receive £3,500 in compensation and ensure that her legal fees were covered.
