Matalan accident claim case study

A 52-year old woman was shopping in a Matalan store in July 2011 when she slipped over on liquid that had been spilled on the floor. As a result of the accident, she injured her back, groin, right hand and both wrists. Her soft tissue damage took quite a long time to repair – the hand injuries lasted for more than eight months, while the groin injury healed after almost 12 months. While she was injured, she struggled to open jars, raise her hands above her head and carry heavy loads.The injuries also required six weeks of physiotherapy, and caused her weight to increase. A rheumatologist asserted that the injuries caused by slip in Matalan also damaged her confidence.

She received £2,250 in an out-of-court settlement.
