Another client of ours (aged 30) was visiting her local pub in Oxford. At one point, she decided to use the ladies toilet and as she was walking across the floor, she slipped on a wet substance (probably split beer) which caused her to lose her footing and fall, hitting her face on the corner of a nearby fruit machine. This left her with a split lip and some bruising on her face. She made a good recovery from her injuries within a few weeks of her accident. The insurers of the public house disputed liability and we had to issue proceedings on her behalf at Oxford County Court. Shortly before trial, we were able to agree upon a settlement.
S J Edney solicitors obtained compensation of £1,000 for this client in 2010.
