Our firm recently represented a man who was injured when he slipped over in a shop in Liverpool City Centre and later won over £3,000 in compensation. Mr T lost his footing while walking down some wet steps at the shop that had recently been cleaned after another customer had spilled a drink on them. He strained his back in the accident and was unable to return to his manual occupation for 2 weeks during which time, as a self-employed contractor, he lost a substantial sum that he would have otherwise earned. We argued successfully that if the steps had been dried properly, or if a wet floor warning sign had been placed at the top of the steps, the accident would most likely not have occurred. Contact our personal injury solicitors in Liverpool City Centre if you have been injured through no fault of your own while out shopping.
Bartletts Solicitors recently represented a part-time teaching assistant at a primary school who was injured in an accident at work through no fault of his own and later successfully claimed compensation from his employer. One day while he was carrying out his duties a tabletop fell on our client causing a serious fracture to his wrist. He subsequently underwent two complicated and painful operations, and required care and assistance with day-to-day tasks for an extended period, during which time his arm was completely useless and he was unable to work at the school. We were able to establish that the tabletop was in a hazardous state of disrepair at the time of the accident, and capable of falling off and causing injury at any point. This meant that the negligence of the employer was the primary cause of our client’s injuries. Following an admission of liability by the local council in question, our client received £20,000 in compensation, in addition a sum covering his travel and medical costs.
Bartletts Solicitors recently acted on behalf of a client who was injured when she went to buy a coffee one morning from a shop in Liverpool. As Mrs T was walking down the aisle she slipped on a piece of fruit that had been spilled on the floor and fell, banging her head on the tiled floor. Members of staff came to her assistance, and as she felt dizzy and nauseous, a family member was called who escorted Mrs T to a nearby NHS walk-in centre where she was diagnosed with a concussion and muscle damage to her neck. Mrs T was unable to return to work for a week after the accident, and suffered from headaches and neck pain during that time. On the recommendation of a friend, she decided to get in touch with our personal injury solicitors in Liverpool to discuss her legal options.
We advised Mrs T that the shop owed her a duty of care under the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957 to take appropriate measures to ensure that she was kept reasonably safe while visiting the premises. We were able to establish that the shop in question did not operate an efficient rota for checking the aisles and identifying potential hazards within a reasonable time frame. The spilled fruit represented a clear slipping hazard and was likely to have been left undetected for some time due to absence of an effective inspection and cleaning rota. We therefore argued that the shop had not taken reasonable steps to avoid Mrs T getting injured, and provided a medical report in support of her claim outlining the extent of her injuries. The shop’s insurers ultimately accepted that the store was liable for the accident, and Mrs T later received a cheque for £2,750 in compensation.

Our firm recently represented a guest who was injured through no fault of his own while staying overnight at a hotel in Liverpool city centre. Mr T suffered a broken ankle after slipping on a wet floor in the hotel’s lobby. The area of floor had been cleaned by hotel staff roughly 15 minutes prior to the accident, and was still in a wet and slippery condition, while no slipping hazard warning signs had been put in position to prevent guests from walking across the area. Mr T was in considerable pain and could not move following the accident. The hotel’s reception called an ambulance immediately, and Mr T underwent surgery on his ankle later the same day. He struggled with pain and loss of mobility for the next 6 months, and also lost a significant amount in earnings during that time due to enforced time off work and his contractual status.
Mr T was dissatisfied with a compensation offer from the hotel’s owners, which he felt to be totally inadequate, and subsequently decided to seek legal advice. Bartletts Solicitors went on to represent Mr T in a no win no fee personal injury claim against the Liverpool city centre hotel’s parent company. In correspondence with the hotel group’s insurers, we argued that the hotel and its staff were at fault for failing to dry the floor in the lobby properly after cleaning, and also for not placing any wet floor warning signs around the area to alert guests to the slipping hazard. The hotel had failed in the duty of care it owed Mr T under the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957, and we were able to obtain an admission of full liability from the hotel group’s insurers relatively quickly in this case, with our client receiving a total of £6,500 in compensation.
