Serious injury solicitors at Irwin Mitchell helped a woman win a five-figure sum after she suffered debilitating injuries in a fall at a local fruit and veg shop.
Our client, Julie, had only just entered the shop in question when she slipped on a pool of water and some squashed strawberries that had been left in the middle of the walkway.
As a result of the accident, Julie fractured her right femur, requiring surgery and the insertion of pins and metal plates in her right leg.
Julie suffered severe scarring from her right hip to her knee.
The fruit and veg shop defended the case throughout, but we managed to negotiate a settlement before proceedings started.
Emma Jones, a serious injury solicitor in our Manchester office, represented Julie. She said of the case: "I am very pleased with the outcome we managed to secure for Julie as it means she can get back to family life and look forward to the future."
If you've been injured due to a slip or trip in a supermarket or shopping centre, our personal injury claims team could help you secure compensation. See our Supermarket & Shopping Centre Accident Claims page for more information.
