Smith Jones Solicitors acted on behalf of a young lady who was 15 years old at the time of her accident. She suffered a head injury whilst visiting a supermarket in the centre of Bolton with her mother. The claimant bent down to pick up a tin of tomatoes from a lower shelf. When she did so a catering sized tin of tomatoes fell from the higher shelf and struck her on the head.


The young girl suffered a laceration to her head, recurring headaches and neck pain but made a full recovery. She was awarded £1,250 compensation for her injuries.
