Irwin Mitchell's specialist public liability team helped a 61 year old woman claim compensation after she was injured in the ladies toilets of a shop.
Our client was shopping when she decided to use the toilets facilities located in the shop. As she went into one of the cubicles and sat down, the toilet seat was not fixed properly and the seat slipped and caught her inner thigh causing a severe lesion. As a result of the extreme pain, she leapt up suddenly and fell against the wall and twisted her left hip and thigh in the process.
Our client continued to suffer pain after the accident and decided to make an appointment with her Doctor who referred her to a Consultant. After undergoing an x-ray she was diagnosed with a soft tissue injury to her left thigh muscles.
The woman decided to get in contact with Irwin Mitchell’s specialised public liability team and with our help we were able to secure the client £2,250 in compensation.
