Holiday accident compensation for client who slipped on manhole

Our client was on holiday with her family in the UK; it had been raining and the ground was wet. Whilst walking with her children through a pedestrianised area, towards an activity, our client slipped on the wet surface of a manhole cover and suffered bruising to her legs and shoulder. Although not serious, her injuries meant that she could not weight bear for several days and her family holiday was completely ruined.

Accident compensation for slip and fall

Our specialist personal injury lawyers were able to negotiate over £2,000 in holiday accident compensation for her injuries and the spoiled holiday. Our client was unable to work for several days and it took several more weeks before the bruising and pain eventually subsided.

Slippery manhole cover after rain

The manhole cover had no anti-slip surface such as bumps or grooves, and despite wearing sturdy trainers, her foot slipped and she fell to the ground, in immediate pain. Initially, her pain was so severe that our client suspected she had broken her hip, but fortunately, she had suffered only severe bruising and an impact injury.

Breach of Occupier's Liability Act

As this accident happened on private property, our specialist slip, trip and fall accident lawyers, were able to bring an accident compensation claim against the operators of the site under a breach of Occupier's Liability Act. This requires owners of any site where the public are allowed, to ensure their safety whilst on the premises.
