Claimant injured at work whilst escorting a customer
I represented the Claimant who was injured whilst working as a nightclub bouncer.
The Claimant and a colleague were escorting an aggressive customer out of the Premises, when the Claimant slipped towards the bottom of a staircase. The stairs were wet from drinks spilled over the course of the evening.
As a result of this fall he sustained a significant fracture to his knee requiring multiple surgeries and leaving him unable to work as a bouncer in the long term.
His employer’s strongly disputed liability from the beginning, alleging the customer had pulled him down and claiming that the stairs were not wet. Court Proceedings were subsequently issued and the Defendant’s continued to strongly defend the claim, insisting they had no offers to make.
Despite this, an offer was eventually made in the sum of £50,000.00 meaning the Claim was
able to settle months before Trial.
