Settlement Agreed in Tesco Wet Ground Injury Claim

February 23, 2012

A Worcestershire pensioner, who broke a bone in his foot after he slipped on a wet floor in Tesco, has been awarded an undisclosed four-figure settlement for his Tesco wet ground injury claim.

Ronald Fryer (80) from Whittington in Worcestershire was going into the Tesco store in St. Peter´s Drive, Worcester in October 2009, when he slipped on a wet floor by the entrance to the shop.

The retired cricket umpire was taken to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital where X-rays showed that Ronald had fractured a metatarsal bone in his foot.

After recuperating from his injury, Ronald sought legal counsel and established that he was eligible to make a Tesco wet floor injury claim due to a breach in Tesco´s duty of care towards its customers.

After drawn-out negotiations over how much compensation for slipping on a wet floor in Tesco Ronald should be entitled to, the company made a four-figure offer in settlement of Ronald´s Tesco wet ground injury claim which he was advised to accept.
