Would You Sue For a Busted Stiletto and a Broken Ankle?


Four years after Sophie King's broken stiletto caused her to break an ankle and undergo an operation on her leg, she was awarded £7,200 by the shoe company that admitted its liability in a British court yesterday. It was the first time Sophie had worn the £35 heels and her lawyer said the case could have gone differently if the shoes were six-months old. He also stated, "If they have just bought the shoes and the shop admits liability they could and should take it up."

He thinks if the case is in the bag a consumer has no reason not to pursue a lawsuit. Would you take a shoe company to court under these circumstances?
