Woman injured by café hazard

Our client stopped at a local café during her morning commute to work and slipped on a wet floor. The woman in her 30s suffered injuries to her left knee and back as a result of the accident.

It had been raining heavily and water had collected on the floor of the café causing a safety hazard. Our specialist personal injury lawyers were able to secure compensation for the injuries she suffered as the café chain admitted occupier's liability.

Knee and back injury from slip on wet floor

Our client was taken by ambulance to hospital to obtain medical treatment after she slipped on the rainwater that had pooled around the bin inside the café. There were no signs to warn customers that the floor was wet. Our client had to be helped back on her feet by employers and other customers after the slip which caused a soft tissue injury to her knee and back.

Our personal injury solicitors were able to secure several thousands of pounds of damages because there had been no system in place at the café to ensure that the floor was cleaned after heavy rain, and water had been allowed to collect causing a safety hazard.
