A startling case has come to light recently where a major supermarket chain sent a private detective to spy on one of their own employees. The objective was to see whether Mrs. H, 65, was feigning injury.
Mrs. H suffered injury whilst working in the bakery department of the store, Greater Manchester. She suffered a terrible injury to her back where she was left with a suspected spinal fracture. As a result of the injury, Mrs. H was unable to lift any heavy equipment or even to walk long distances.
Especially worrying about this aspect was that Mrs. H had been seen by doctors at Manchester Infirmary, who all confirmed that she was suffering an injury that would thoroughly prevent her day-to-day activities and effect her whole lifestyle. For example, Mrs. H has to have regular injections to ease the pain and finds that she is unable to walk for any great length of time.
Mrs. H was found to be seriously injured as a result of the store’s negligence. She was therefore awarded her compensation of £21,000, clearly advocating how serious her injury was.
