You are walking around your local supermarket concentrating on finding the items you need and the meal you are going to prepare tonight when suddenly your left foot slides under you on something slippery on the floor and you land heavily in pain shock and also embarrassment. You try to get up but you find that you cannot move your left leg and the pain is excruciating. You are frightened and feel terribly alone. People gather around and someone calls the shop manager. She is not too sympathetic but after getting you to sign the accident book calls an ambulance and you are taken off to hospital and after a long wait are told you have fractured your left knee which may require surgery.

Their primary duty is not to compensate injured parties but to maximise the interests of their shareholders and this should never be forgotten.
