Joan Dufosse sustained a fractured thigh when she slipped over in the Santa's grotto section of the Oxford Street branch of Selfridge's - which was first opened in 1910 - in November 2009.
The 73-year-old was having a photograph taken with her two grandchildren when she fell over a stray decorative plastic icicle, leaving her seriously injured.
Ms Dufosse subsequently had to have surgery where metal plates and screws were inserted in the limb and she has still not made a complete recovery more than two years later.
During a case heard at the Civil Appeal Court in London, Lord Justice Rix overturned a previous ruling which decided she could not seek compensation and Ms Dufosse is now expected to receive a five-figure damages sum from the world-famous department store.
