Dislodged supermarket sign falls on claimant's leg

09 April 2008

Our claimant bought a public liability case after a supermarket sign was tampered with and as a result fell on the claimant. The large sign was hanging above the checkout area in Sainsbury and struck the claimant on the leg. The sign was inadvertently dislodged by a member of the public carrying an ironing broad. Although there was no discernable scarring, our claimant was left with an uncomfortable sensation on her leg. In effect she avoided wearing walking boots as the pressure against her shin caused unpleasant symptoms. Our solicitors settled this case successfully, allowing our claimant to receive compensation for the damages that were sustained.
