Client trips in local convenience store – Caught on CCTV.
The client tripped over a shopping basket left by the tills in a local Cheshire store.
Our client, Mr F, was a local person who wanted to be assured of a getting a good ‘no win no fee’ lawyer to handle his accident claim. We took on the case and obtained injury compensation for the fractured knee he suffered.
Our client was waiting at the tills in the local store but did not notice a wire shopping basket that had been left on the floor near the tills. The shop denied liability saying that the basket must have just been left there by another customer and the accident was not their fault. We, however, asked for the CCTV recording of the incident and were able to establish that the basket had been there for some time.
We obtained medical evidence to confirm the nature of the claimant’s injuries and we successfully negotiated a settlement all on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.

“I just want to thank Dominic and the team for doing such a great job. To be honest I didn’t think that you’d even be able to help me on a no win, no fee basis, never mind win me such a substantial sum”
