Supermarket admits fault in accident claim case

An elderly gentleman has been awarded a four-figure injury compensation sum after bringing a successful accident claim against a local supermarket.  The compensation claim was brought by the pensioner after he badly fractured his foot as a result of slipping on a wet floor.

The 80 year old’s legal team were able to establish that the ‘duty of care’ that the retailer owed to all of its customers had not been met in his case, and an out of court compensation settlement was agreed.  In an interview with a local newspaper, the gentleman spoke of the ‘unbearable pain’ that he had been suffering following the slip, and noted that it reminded him of a similar injury he had sustained back in his footballing days.
