An eighty-year-old man, who fractured a metatarsal bone in his foot after slipping on a wet floor in Tesco, has agreed to a settlement of Tesco customer injury compensation after a two year wait.
Ronald Fryer from Worcestershire made a claim for Tesco customer injury compensation after he slipped at the entrance to the St. Peter´s Drive Tesco supermarket in Whittington in October 2009.
In addition to bringing his accident to the attention of the store management, Ronald went immediately to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital where X-rays revealed that he had fractured a metatarsal bone in his foot.
On his discharge from hospital, Ronald contacted a solicitor and established that he was able to make a foot injury claim against Tesco due to the supermarket´s negligence in failing to provide their customers with a safe environment in which to shop.
Tesco initially denied their liability for Ronald´s fractured metatarsal bone and declined to discuss his claim for Tesco customer injury compensation. However, prior to court proceedings being issued, Tesco made an undisclosed offer of Tesco customer injury compensation which Ronald accepted.
