£2,580 for School Child in Sports Hall Slip Claim in Ellesmere Port

PSR Solicitors in Ellesmere Port recently secured over £2,500 for a schoolboy who injured his knee and elbow following a slip in an unlit, wet school sports hall.

We were instructed by the parents of a 14-year-old boy who suffered an injury at school. The Client was taking part in a PE lesson and he was instructed by the teacher to go into the sports hall, so he and other pupils ran into the hall. The lights in the hall were switched off, so it was dark and, unbeknown to the client, the floor had recently been mopped, so it was wet. Our client slipped on the wet floor and fell and suffered an injury.

We were instructed in early April 2109 and we submitted full details of the accident claim to the school’s insurance company. Within two months we had secured a full admission of liability, so we instructed a medical expert to prepare a report on the client’s injuries. 

The doctor examined our Client and diagnosed a sprain/strain type injury to his left knee and left elbow. The pain to his left elbow resolved in about a week or so; however, the pain in the client’s knee continued for three months. He went to the hospital and his GP and he took pain killers for several weeks. He was unable to take part in his usual sporting hobbies for around six weeks. Thankfully his symptoms fully resolved without any complications.

Once we received the medical report we entered into negotiations with the defendant’s insurers. Including the parents’ travelling expenses, we were seeking compensation of £2,610, but the insurers were offering a maximum of £2,350. After some negotiation, we eventually reached a compromise at £2,580. As the client was under 18, any settlement agreed between the parties required the Court’s approval. We made an application to the Court which resulted in a short hearing, where the judge agreed that the compensation was appropriate. The parents’ travelling expenses were paid to them, while the sum in respect of the client’s injuries was invested until he reaches 18, at which point he will receive it.

£3,400 Compensation for Client who slipped on flowers in Asda Wrexham

PSR Solicitors of Wrexham have successfully obtained £3,400 in personal injury compensation for a client who was injured as a result of an accident in an Asda store.

The circumstances of the accident were that our client attended the Asda store and was walking towards the checkout when she slipped and fell due to flowers which were on the floor. As a result of the fall, our client sustained an injury to her arm, knee and head.

Upon accepting the case we alleged negligence on the part of Asda. Various allegations were made but most importantly that the defendant had failed to ensure the safety of our client whilst she was a visitor in their store in breach of section 2 of the Occupier’s Liability Act.

Liability was admitted by Asda and following the admission, we obtained medical evidence for our client and obtained a favourable injury compensation settlement on their behalf.
