A woman has been awarded €40,000 after she slipped on a chip in a shopping centre food court.

Lina Misiunaite sued the owners of a food court in the Liffey Valley Shopping Centre and a cleaning company for injuries she sustained from slipping on the chip.

The mother-of-four said her ankle went over and she injured her knee as she was walking across the food court.

Lina Misiunaite is suing the owners of the food court in the Liffey Valley Shopping Centre and a cleaning company for injuries she sustained from slipping on a chip Pic:Collins

She said she spotted the crushed chip when she sat down after the accident on November 4 2014.

The 36-year-old argues the chip was allowed to remain on the floor and there was no warning of the dangers posed.

She claims after the accident she struggled to look after her young children or do household tasks such as vacuuming or lifting shopping bags.

The Irish Independent reports she said her ankle injury cleared up within eight weeks but she was on anti-inflammatories for three months for her knee.

Under cross examination Ms Misiunaite agreed she had settled a claim against Lidl supermarkets  for €10,000 after she sued in relation to a  slip and fall in February 2013.

She agreed that she had hurt the same knee in that accident.
