Settlement arising from 'Slip and Fall' Accident in Supermarket

McGrath McGrane received instructions from a client who suffered an injury while shopping. Our client had paid for the goods purchased and while leaving the shop, was caused to slip and fall on a piece of fruit which had been left on the floor. As a result of the fall, the client suffered personal injuries of a soft tissue nature.

The firm wrote to the shop concerned and notified it of our client’s claim in respect of the personal injuries suffered. McGrath McGrane corresponded with the claims handlers acting on behalf of the shop and ultimately received an admission of liability. The client continued to receive treatment in relation to the injuries suffered. When the injuries stabilised and were close to resolution, we arranged a settlement meeting with the claims handlers acting on behalf of the shop, at the Law Library of the Four Courts.

Following negotiations, the client’s claim was settled for the sum of €20,000.00, thereby avoiding the necessity and delay which would have resulted had an application been made to the Injuries Board.
