Claimant successful secure compensation for slipping in JD Wetherspoon on spillage from leaking toilet
The Claimant went to a toilet cubicle in JD Wetherspoons in Derby and as he walked into the cubicle, he slipped on water which had leaked from a toilet, which hadn’t been repaired. The Claimant was knocked unconscious for a short period before returning to his family in the pub. The pub chain accepted fault but didn’t accept the extent of the symptoms complained of by the Claimant.
However, the Claimant obtained supporting evidence from two medical experts, an Orthopaedic Surgeon and a Hand Surgeon who supported the fact that whilst the Claimant banged his elbow in the accident, the subsequent pain he was feeling in his lower arm and wrist were indirectly linked to the accident to which he required two operations. The Claimant claimed only for personal injury compensation and settled his claim for £20,0000.
