Hairdresser compensated after slip at work

Our client, who worked as a hairdresser in a salon, was injured after she slipped on water near a wash basin which had been leaking.

Despite the fact that a similar incident had already occurred, and after our client and her colleagues had repeatedly reported the leak to the employers, no action had been taken to repair the basin. Her slip caused her to suffer soft-tissue ligament damage to her knee which put her out of work for two months, during which time she lost vital earnings.

Employers denied liability

As part of the treatment for her injury, our client had to wear a leg splint which restricted her movement for six weeks and meant that she relied on support from family members to help her carry out the most basic personal tasks, such as cleaning and dressing.

Following the accident, she was referred to our specialist personal injury lawyers who were able to secure her compensation for her injury after her employers, who had initially tried to deny liability, admitted failing in its health and safety obligations to its employees.
