£3,100 secured for client after supermarket slip during 2018’s “Beast from the East”

In the early months of 2018, Edyta had just walked into a local supermarket when she slipped on a wet floor in the entrance area. It had been snowing that day. There were no warning signs present.

She was in immediate pain, with the left knee of her trousers torn. She had suffered a laceration and swelling to the knee. A security guard came to her assistance and she completed a report in the supermarket’s accident book.

In the months that followed, the walking and kneeling was difficult, and overall it took around 8 months for Edyta to recover from her injuries.

Edyta came to us for assistance and our solicitor Paul Pike set to work putting together the claim form setting out the legal basis for the claim and detailing the circumstances of the accident.

He submitted the claim to the supermarket’s public liability insurer. The insurer conceded the supermarket’s liability for the accident. We arranged for Edyta to attend a short consultation with a specialist GP expert, who produced a report that confirmed the extent of her injuries and gave a formal prognosis.

In negotiations with the insurer, we agreed a settlement of £3,100 for Edyta’s injuries.  Edyta said:

“Thank you very much Paul for all you done for me. I am very much satisfied with your hard work. 

“You have managed in your full professionalism to leave some warm reflections in my heart.  Both my husband and I are full of admiration to you and there’s not enough words to say thank you!”

Success Stories


If you’ve had an accident at work, you should get in touch with our specialist team as soon as possible.  We’ll take the details we need and explain the next steps. We always recommend you take the following steps, but don’t worry if there’s something here you haven’t done:

  • Complete an accident report and inform your Health and Safety representative at work
  • If you are still in pain, shock, or distress when the report is completed, do not sign it.
  • Keep details of anyone who witnessed the accident.
  • If possible, as soon as you can, ask your Health and Safety representative to take photos of the scene and make them available to you.
  • Write down your recollection of exactly what happened in the accident, including the location and approximate time.

Work Claims Bureau prides itself on progressing your claim promptly whenever it is possible to do so. No two claims are the same. How long your claim lasts is dependent on a number of factors, including:

  • The prognosis for your injuries
  • The conduct of all parties involved
  • Whether your employer admits they were at fault or if we need to fight your case on your behalf

Bearing this in mind, work accident claims typically take between 6 months and 24 months to conclude.  However, this is not ‘written in stone’, and they can last a shorter or longer time than this.

Your employer faces further culpability if they take disciplinary action against you or terminate your employment simply because you make an honest claim for personal injury. There is legislation in place to protect you. You are doing the right thing in reporting your accident and formally submitting a claim, both for yourself and for your employer in helping prevent similar accidents happening in the future.
