Hanna's Slip Accident Settles for £7,500 (Belfast)

Hanna's Slip Accident Settles for £7,500 (Belfast)

Hanna was leaving a hot food takeway when a floor mat slipped from under her feet causing her to lose her balance and fall. She landed on her side hurting her elbow. Hanna, in pain, complained to the employee behind the counter that the floor was wet under the mat. An independent witness who was there at the time pointed out the there was no wet floor signs on display. Understandably, Hanna felt embarrassed and wanted to leave the premises quickly, but not before asking the witness for contact details.

Hanna attended A&E where she was diagnosed with a fractured elbow which would require physiotherapy. In the weeks to come she also developed further pain in her upper arm and reduced movement of the shoulder. Already with a view to claim, Hanna asked a close friend if they could recommend a solicitor.

We initiated a claim against the takeaway but they denied liability on the basis that they had taken all reasonable precautions. We had Hanna examined by a consultant orthopaedic surgeon who confirmed the A&E’s initial diagnosis. We made an attempt to resolve the matter through settlement but this was unsuccessful. As a result the case was listed for hearing in the High Court. On the morning of the trial the takeaway shop expressed an interest to settle rather than facing us in court and the matter settled in the sum of £7,500.
