£5,344 compensation awarded for accident in the workplace
We were recently instructed to assist a client in making a compensation claim for an accident that he suffered at his place of work
Our client was walking down a staircase at work when he slipped on liquid
which had been spilt on the stairs causing him to fall down the last 4 steps and causing personal injury. Our client sustained an injury to his back
. This accident was caused due to the fact that the steps had recently been mopped
by the cleaners who had failed to put up wet floor signs
As our client was in his early 20s it ensured the recovery of the back injury would be a good one. The defendant offered compensation
to the client as well as additional compensation to allow him to have x-rays and physiotherapy
to assist in the recovery process should it be necessary
in the future.
Our client received £5,344 in compensation
for his personal injury claim.
