Our client, a 42 year old male was shopping in Waitrose in Sheffield on 8 November 2010. He went to use the male toilet facilities and almost immediately as he entered the toilet, he slipped on a pool of water. There were no warning notices alerting our client to the wet floor and as he slipped, he sustained a personal injury.
Irwin Mitchell’s specialist Public Liability team helped the man make a claim to the City Council on 4 January 2011 and liability was admitted within a few weeks.
Our team obtained expert medical evidence which confirmed that our client had sustained an undisplaced fracture of his right ulnar bone. He was treated by plaster cast immobilisation and updated x-rays confirmed the fracture had united with no long term complications anticipated.
Damages were settled in the sum of £5,000 for the pain and suffering caused by the injury sustained, plus payment of the legal costs.
Our serious injury solicitors could help you claim compensation if you have suffered a fracture or broken bone as the result of an accident. See our Broken Bone Or Fracture Claims page for more information.
