Clothes store injury claim case study

A 7-year-old girl was shopping for clothes with her mother when she tripped over the leg of a clothes stand, which was only intended as a temporary measure and should not have been on the floor. She sustained a fractured forearm in the clothes shop injury, which prevented her from playing with her friends or participating in her favourite sports. She also complained of nightmares, which led to fear, anxiety and mood swings.

Liability was eventually admitted by the clothes store’s insurers and the victim received £5,000 for her pain and suffering, with this money invested until she reaches 18 years of age. Her parents were also compensated for their financial losses.
