Client trips in local convenience store – Caught on CCTV

Accident in Public Place

The client tripped over a shopping basket left by the tills in a local Cheshire store.

What we did

Our client, Mr F., was a local person who wanted to be assured of 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.

Background

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.

Settlement

Following the settlement, Mr F. obtained £8,500 for the injury and other out of pocket expenses. The store has since put a basket holder in place at the end of the tills to prevent another person from hurting themselves in the same way.
