Asda liable for shopper slipping in cafe where 10 other accidents occurred, High Court judge rules

The 45-year-old fell in the NI store as she was holding a child by the hand

Asda is liable for a shopper slipping and falling in a cafe where 10 other accidents occurred over a two-year period, a High Court judge ruled yesterday.

According to Mr Justice Maguire’s assessment, the most likely cause was water or moisture on the floor from a nearby refrigerated drinks unit.

“The record of past accidents strongly suggests there was a serious problem which required urgent attention,” the judge said.
