Supermarket must pay damages

GMI again achieved a victory for the consumer against a big corporate when a settlement was reached in favour of Marie-Antoinette de Lange, who sustained injuries from an accident in a shopping centre.

De Lange, who is represented by Associate Tim Vlok, fell after slipping on brown sugar on the floor of the Hercules Spar in 2011. She reported to have suffered a head injury, many bruises, and a spinal injury. She also suffered enduring injuries that include loss of feeling in her right foot and chronic pain.

To ensure the safety of its customers, supermarkets are obliged to monitor their floors for dry and wet substances that are likely to cause slipping. Although the supermarket has not admitted negligence, it has committed to paying damages, of which the exact amount will be determined by a team of experts. De Lange is demanding R1.1 million.

Free wills and expert advice from GMI during national Wills Week

GMI is proud to be associated with National Wills Week that will be running from 14 September to 18 September this year. Wills Week aims to help South Africans understand the importance of having a valid will, and to ensure that people who would not usually be able to afford a will from a qualified attorney get one for free.

Those in need of a will have been made aware about this opportunity through the marketing efforts of Law Society of South Africa (LSSA).

GMI has made resources available to ensure that those without a will get a basic will and testament at no cost. Interested people can contact GMI directly on 012 428 8600 from 14 to 18 September to make an appointment.

Wills are often tricky to get right if one is not aware of the legal pitfalls. It is therefore vitally important to have your will drawn up by an attorney to ensure that your assets are divided in exact accordance with your wishes. Having your will drawn up by an attorney also ensures that no-one can attack the will’s validity. It often happens that wills are attacked because they were drawn up by a layman who could not ensure that all legal requirements were met.

Dying without a will can also cause problems for those you leave behind and take much longer to wind up, leaving the family without financial support in their hour of need. By drawing up a clear will, unhappiness and conflict between family members are also minimised.
