A woman was shopping in a TK Maxx store in the Craighleith area of Edinburgh when another customer knocked a suitcase from a display. It landed on the customer’s neck and shoulder, which caused a pre-existing medical condition to worsen. The victim experienced significant pain in the damaged area, and was taken to hospital in an ambulance, where she received treatment for soft tissue damage.She pursued a compensation claim against TK Maxx with the financial backing of the union Unison, and the store immediately admitted liability. The victim received a compensation payment of £2,000.
