Man who slipped on badly worn step wins accident compensation

Enjoying a day out with his family, our client was leaving a restaurant when he slipped and fell. He asked for our expert legal advice in bringing a claim for his injuries suffered as a result of this accident.

Our specialist accident compensation lawyers, through strong negotiation, won several thousand pounds in accident compensation for this client

Fall in restaurant through badly worn step

As he was leaving the restaurant, he slipped on a badly worn step which he did not see as the exit was poorly lit.

Our client was in immediate pain and following examination at hospital was told that he had suffered a compression fracture to his spine, as well as general bruising. He also suffered shock and anxiety. It took many months before the effects of his injuries resolved and for several of those was unable to return to work.

Breach of Regulations

Our personal injury lawyers fought this claim on the basis that the defendant had breached their common law duty to ensure our client was reasonable safe whilst visiting their premises as a lawful visitor. They also breached their statutory duty under the Occupiers' Liability Act. The restaurant admitted liability.
