Claimant was injured when she slipped in a shopping centre.

I represented a Claimant who slipped in a rain puddle, on a public concourse in a shopping centre, as a result she fell backwards landing on her buttocks and suffered a soft tissue injury to her lumbar spine. The Claimant was absent from work for 3 months due to constant lower back pain.

 

The Claimant was attended to by a first-aider and an accident report form was completed. The Claimant attended her GP and was prescribed codeine and naproxen analgesia. The claimant did have pre-existing back pain for over a decade and following an MRI scan, results showed a degenerative disc. The Defendants raised causation as an issue in an attempt to minimise the Claimants compensation, this did not discourage me and I fought back referencing extensive case law and reminded them of the ‘egg shell skull rule’ – take your victim as you find them.

 

The claim settled without the need to issue proceedings in the sum of £9,858.00 and consisted of compensation for the injuries suffered and loss of earnings, care & assistance, travel and medication expenses.
