A Melbourne woman who claimed she injured her knee and back after she slipped on a piece of lettuce during a trip to the supermarket has lost her legal bid for compensation.

Kanwaleen Bhelley, 43, claimed she suffered a whole person impairment (WPI) of more than five per cent following the ordeal at a Coles store at Wyndham Vale in May 2020.

Ms Bhelley's medical reports supporting her claim that her impairment from the fall exceeded five per cent were rejected by the supermarket giant, which referred the case to a medical panel which assessed her in 2021.

The panel found Ms Bhelley suffered age-related degenerative changes to her spine and sacroiliac joints associated with rehabilitation treatment of her right knee.

The panel ruled her condition was stable and that she didn't meet the WPI threshold required for compensation.
