Accident in supermarket results in £3,300 personal injury compensation

A man who fell as a result of tripping over a sunken gulley on a supermarket pavement has been awarded £3,300 in accident compensation. The man suffered a back injury as a result of the fall.

Initial legal argument centred over a dispute as to the ownership of the land where the defective pathway was situated. Following investigations by the claimant’s solicitors, the supermarket’s insurers eventually accepted liability for the poorly maintained surface, and were willing to settle the personal injury claim.
