A recent client of Bartletts Solicitors was awarded £90,000 in compensation after an accident at work left her with a severely sprained ankle, chronic back pain and ongoing mobility issues. The lady in question worked as a service quality coordinator in a large open plan office. Building contractors had recently been working at the premises laying electric cables under the flooring, and had placed a carpet tile on top of one of the cable holes. On the day of the accident our client was walking across the office when she stumbled and fell on the cable hole, sustaining an injury to her ankle and straining her lower back.
Our firm later agreed to represent the lady in a no win no fee personal injury claim against her employer. All employers are legally obliged to provide a safe working environment for their employees as far as possible, and in this instance the cable hole concealed by the carpet tile made it reasonably foreseeable that a person walking over it would fall and injure themselves. We were able to obtain an admission of liability from the employer within a matter of months, with our client receiving a compensation settlement totalling £90,000.
A recent client of Bartletts Solicitors was walking down the aisle in his local supermarket with a basket of shopping when he slipped on a pool of water that had leaked from a refrigeration unit and fell awkwardly, partially tearing the rotator cuff in his shoulder. Mr D and his partner informed staff about the incident, and the details were duly recorded in the store’s accident book. They were also able to take photographs of the pool of water, which later proved important in establishing the extent of the slipping hazard. Mr D attended a nearby NHS walk-in centre for treatment, and continued to experience pain and loss of mobility on his shoulder for months afterwards. This also caused him to take 3 weeks off work, during which time he was not paid under the terms of his contract. He was offered a negligible amount of compensation by the supermarket in question, and consequently decided to seek legal advice.
Mr D contacted our firm to discuss the situation, and we subsequently agreed to represent him in a no win no fee claim against the supermarket in question. In correspondence with the supermarket’s insurers we argued that management and staff at the store should have been aware of the defective refrigeration unit and should have taken measures to deal with the leaking water before it could pose a danger to customers. The accumulated pool of water represented a clear slipping hazard making it entirely foreseeable that Mr D would slip over and injure himself while walking down the aisle. At the very least, warning signs should have been in position to alert shoppers and prevent them from walking down that section of the aisle. The store’s system of inspection and maintenance had failed on this occasion, and this was the primary cause of Mr D’s injury. Following an admission of liability, our client received £3,250 in compensation.
