A Birmingham woman received an out of court settlement of £6,868.52 after she slipped on a puddle of water in a Marks and Spencer store.
The woman, who had been walking around the food hall, slipped suddenly, colliding with a display cabinet. On being helped to her feet and taken to hospital she was found to have suffered a broken arm and extensive bruising.
As a result of her injuries the woman relied upon her husband to carry out day to day activities for her such as cooking, cleaning and driving. As the woman was a carer for her mother, her husband was also required to take on this role, ensuring she was properly looked after.
Her claim was settled by Tania Bains Irwin Mitchell's Birmingham office.
Miss Bains stated, "the failure of the store to ensure the floors were adequately cleaned put my client, along with her fellow shoppers, at undue risk. My client suffered a painful and intrusive injury as a result of the negligence of the store.
"I was able to obtain compensation for her injuries, along with the time taken by her husband to care for both her and her mother. I was also able to negotiate treatment for my client, and I am pleased to say she has since made a full recovery and is delighted with the outcome."
