A woman who suffered a fractured leg, when she was knocked to the ground as a Supermarket employee came off a step ladder, has settled her High Court action. The Plaintiff gave evidence that she had popped in to the shop and gave the step ladder a wide berth. She was not aware of anybody on the ladder. She was struck on the shoulder as she walked past. “It was like my Superman moment, I flew forward,” she said. She said she experienced the worst pain of her life going up her leg and said she was in excruciating pain. She rolled along the ground, she said and was facing shelves of chocolates. The claimant who fractured her thigh bone in the accident said she was later told her injury was consistent with a high-speed car accident. When the case came back before Mr Justice Kevin Cross on Wednesday, he was told the case had been settled and could be struck out. The plaintiff claimed there was an alleged failure to ensure the shopping aisle was safe for the use of customers and an alleged failure to have any regard for her safety. She further claimed the supermarket employee was allegedly allowed to use a step ladder for restocking without any assistance. There was also, she claimed, an alleged failure to cordon off or prevent customers from coming in to close proximity with the step ladder during the re stocking. The supermarket denied the claims and contended there was contributory negligence on the claimants’ part for allegedly failing to keep any proper look out and allegedly failing to heed the presence of an employee in her vicinity.
