One of our clients (now aged 59) slipped on a slippery substance (she suspects cream cheese) during December 2008 whilst she was shopping at her local Sainsburys store in Sevenoaks, Kent. She landed heavily and sustained a fracture of a metatarsal in her left foot and a fracture of her right wrist which was her dominant arm. She worked as a physiotherapist and was off work for about 3 months because of her injuries.
The insurers of Sainsburys admitted liability for her accident but we were unable to agree the value of her claim. Proceedings were issued at Swindon County Court. Sainsburys solicitors then attempted to withdraw the earlier admission of liability which had been made, which we successfully opposed. We were then able to settle her claim.
S J Edney solicitors obtained compensation of £12,500 for this client in 2010
