Supermarket employee awarded £20,000 in damages for chest injuries


We assisted a male supermarket employee in recovering £20,000 in damages for injuries that he sustained at work. He slipped on a spillage left in situ and fell against a counter sustaining rib injuries.

The employers had been made aware of the spillage prior to his accident but failed to rectify this. As a result of his injury, our client suffered ongoing permanent nuisance type chest symptoms.

The award reflected the ongoing nature and impact of his injury.
