A woman was walking along a parade of shops in snowy weather. As she walked past the entrance to a store, she slipped and fell on the ice at the entrance of the premises.
There was no evidence of gritting at the exit/entrance, or any warning notices to indicate that the exit/entrance was slippery. As a result of the fall, the woman fractured her left hip which resulted in her undergoing a total hip replacement.
Medical evidence confirmed the extent of the woman's injury and it was not anticipated that a hip replacement would be necessary in the future.
The Claimant was awarded £20,000 in compensation for her injuries.
