Our 72 year old local client had a very nasty fall in a shoe shop.

The shop was badly understaffed at a particularly busy time and the whole area was described as a “bombsite”. Our client who normally goes shopping with her daughter went alone and fell over discarded shoe boxes whilst in the crowded store.

Due to her age she sustained multiple injuries including ripping out a nail, and soft tissue injuries to many parts of her body.

This case is a reminder to shop keepers to have safe premises. If you allow the shop floor to become a danger then you can be responsible for any injury caused.
