Slipping Accident Compensation Claim

We acted for a 25 year old lady called Marie who was involved in a slipping accident at work.

Immediately prior to our Marie's accident she had been working in her office which was situated near to her employer's main customer reception area. She was in the process of walking from her office to the staff room which meant she had to walk behind the reception counter. Marie had just walked behind the counter when she slipped on a recently mopped floor and fell to the ground. She only found out subsequently that the floor had recently been mopped by her employer's cleaner and no warning signs had been put out. As a result of her accident Marie sustained a soft tissue and muscular injury to her lower back.

A letter of claim was sent to the employer within four months of the accident taking place and at that time Marieremained symptomatic. We received an admission of liability within three months of the letter of claim being sent.

Apart from the claim for pain, suffering and loss of amenity, the claim also included a small amount for loss of bonus (Marie was paid her basic monthly pay for the ten days she was off work as a result of the accident) including some care and assistance together with travel and treatment costs. We were able to recover the vast majority of the expenses claimed.

Aside from Marie's physical injuries she also suffered an adverse psychological reaction as a result of the accident and we obtained supportive medical evidence from a consultant clinical psychologist together with a report from a consultant orthopaedic surgeon in respect of the lower back injury.

Marie's claim settled just over twelve months after we had received the admission of liability for just over £5,000.00.
