Client awarded £1,568.56 after a glass shelf fell on her foot
Pauline Smith, associate and personal injury claims handler recently settled a case for a caimant who had sustained injury due to a glass shelf falling on her left foot.
The claimant was browsing in her local department store in the gentleman’s section when she saw a bag which was located on a glass shelf, approximately five feet from the floor. The claimant reached up and undid the strap on the back to check if it had a magnetic clasp. As the claimant was facing the shelf she turned her upper body towards her husband, who was on her left, in order to show him the bag. Without warning, the shelf which the bag had been on suddenly fell from the bracket and the front edge of the shelf landed on the claimant’s left foot.
The claimant sustained bruising, swelling and abrasions to her left foot. The claimant recovered from all her symptoms within two months post accident.
After Stephensons proceeded with the case against the property owners, the case was settled and the claimant received £1,568.56 compensation.
