Parents suing Tesco for toddler's injury

The parents of a toddler injured during an accident in a supermarket are pursuing a claim for compensation.

According to the Wiltshire Times, Roman Herbert - who is 18 months old - was hurt when he fell from a trolley after one of its wheels detached last week at a local Tesco store.

Consequently, his parents Brad and Emma are now taking legal action against the retail giant - which employs more than 492,000 people around the world - on the grounds that its negligence resulted in their son's injuries.

The child escaped the ordeal with bruising to his face and thighs, but required first aid treatment at the scene and Mr Herbert expressed his anger that the duty manager at the store blamed the incident on him.

"For somebody to come out with that comment is not warranted ... I did everything I could, it's down to them having a faulty trolley," he noted.
