£28000 Settlement In Spilt Drinks Case
Mrs Baldwin from Rossendale was out for a drink with friends in a busy pub when she slipped on a spilt drink which had been left on the floor.
Slipping cases in pubs, shops and restaurants can be very difficult.
They plainly have a legal duty to take care for the safety of visitors.
But even with the best inspection and cleaning system in the world there will always be a risk that spillages remain on the floor for a short while.
But when we investigated the circumstances of this particular case it emerged that the pub had no system of inspecting for spillages, so they were clearly in breach of their duty.
Mrs Baldwin’s injury turned out to be very serious; She had a fracture of her hip and had to undergo surgery.
We took on the claim against the insurers for the pub and they admitted their liability.
We then gathered all the expert medical evidence we needed and helped Mrs Baldwin settle her claim for around £28000.
