4,000 compensation for store shopper injured at checkout

Elizabeth Black was shopping in her local supermarket and as she approached the checkout, she caught her leg on a wire basket holder which was screwed to the floor. She suffered a deep 4 inch laceration, requiring stitches. She made a claim for accident injury compensation with personal injury law firm Rapid Solicitors. A source at Rapid said: “This was an unusual case. It’s more common for shoppers to slip on food such as fallen fruit. The wire basket holder, in its location and condition, presented a hazard. The retailer has a duty under the Occupiers Liability Act to ensure that the premises are safe for shoppers, staff and visitors. The Defendants didn’t admit liability straight away, so we had to gather a lot of evidence and witness statements to persuade the Defendants to avoid a costly court trial and admit fault. We also had to fight for the amount of the award after our initial injury valuation was questioned.” Mrs Black suffered ulceration after the wound stitching and was left with a permanent scar.
