Lawyer Urges Pubs To Take More Care Following Accident

Katrina Elsey from our personal injury team has urged pub landlords and managers to take more care with their internal fittings after a man was injured when he hit his head on a low hanging object.

The man was visiting a pub in October 2008 when the incident took place. He suffered a laceration on his forehead and a neck sprain. His sleep was also disturbed for around two weeks and he suffered headaches for the first week.

We helped the man to make a claim and although liability for the accident was not admitted, we agreed an out of court settlement of £2,500. Katrina Elsey said: "I urge premises to take extra care when positioning hanging items. Low hanging objects within public premises can cause a danger to customers."
