Employer Liability Case Studies

Poorly lit steps causes fractured leg

Ms X suffered a broken tibia following an accident walking out of poorly lit premises at a Public House. Ms X contacted us shortly after the accident, telling us how she slipped down two wooden steps onto the concrete floor. These steps were not visible at the end of the premises walkway due to a lack of both lighting and reflective strips on the edges of the steps. Ms X’s fracture required internal fixation. She also suffered with a fracture of posterior malleolus and soft tissue damage to her ankle. Due to these injuries Ms X had time off work which resulted in loss of earnings. Dealing with the case, Chartered Legal Executive, AH was determined to include these losses as part of the claim. Following submission of the claim, the Defendant denied liability. This was on the basis that there was adequate lighting in the area and the steps were marked with hazard tape. AH took steps to issue Court proceedings to serve upon the Defendant. AH made a suggestion to Ms X to put forward an offer to settle, despite the denial of liability. A settlement was ultimately achieved for Ms X without the need for her to attend Trial. Miss X received £8250.00 for her injuries, pain, suffering and losses.

Unsafe area for P.E. lesson causes injury

In September 2017, Master X (A Minor) sustained an injury whilst participating in a P.E. lesson at school. Master X's parent contacted us through our website. Master X and the other students were running laps of the athletics track. Following their laps they went to sit down on a large grass area as instructed. They were walking across to this area when the Claimant stood on a nail which was protruding from a plank of wood. Cut grass covered the plank of wood. This was not immediately obvious to the Claimant, who was naturally not looking out for the same. DU, a Solicitor here at Russell Worth, was happy to represent Master X in a personal injury claim against the school. Liability was initially denied. This was on the basis the school believed a system of visual inspection was in place at the start of each P.E. lesson. They advised this would have resulted in locating any object such as the piece of wood. DU argued the risk assessments in place by the school were inadequate and that on the day in question the visual inspection conducted was insufficient in the circumstances. DU therefore put forward an offer to the Defendant. Based on this argument the Defendant accepted the offer of settlement in the sum of £1,200.00. DU believed the offer to be reasonable in relation to the injuries sustained by Master X. This was agreeable out of Court to avoid the risks faced by going to a contested Trial. DU needed to prepare the file for an Infant Settlement Hearing, whereby a Judge confirmed the offered sum was an acceptable amount in respect of compensation and agreed an order confirming the same.

Road Traffic Accident Case Studies

Holiday maker suffers road traffic accident in UK

In January 2018 Mr X visited the UK for a holiday. A car failed to stop and rear end shunted his vehicle whilst stationary at a set of red traffic lights. Mr X sustained a whiplash injury to his mid to lower back. BS, road traffic specialist, was keen to assist Mr X in making a claim for compensation. A claim was submitted to the defendants insurance company and after the investigations, an admission of liability was forthcoming. BS, knowing Mr X did not live in the UK arranged a video consultation with an independent medical expert. The expert prepared a medical report. The independent medical expert was of the opinion Mr X would achieve a full recovery within 3 months. However, on the advice of BS, he agreed to wait out this time and to have a course of physiotherapy treatment. In light of the physiotherapy costs incurred by Mr X, BS assessed the claim to see whether he satisfied the criteria for an interim payment. Mr X met the criteria, therefore, BS sent a request for an interim payment. Following the request, the interim payment came along with an offer from the other side of £1800.00. Upon review of this offer, BS advised Mr X the offer was too low and recommended to reject it. Mr X agreed with BS’s advice and continued with his treatment. Unfortunately, Mr X continued to experience pain and discomfort after completing his course of physiotherapy treatment. Therefore BS sought the opinion of the independent medical expert once more. A supplementary report showed the expert recommended a further course of treatment. The expert was of the opinion recovery would take place 3 months after completion of treatment. Mr X, advised BS he wanted to settle his claim prior to the above treatment. BS, happy with his decision so long as he provided details of his losses with evidence. Following receipt of these a BS drafted a schedule of losses. Noting the recommended future treatment, she sought to include this within the claim and obtained a quotation to ensure Mr X still had the benefit of the same. After some negotiations, Mr X was awarded £13,000.00 for his pain and suffering. But also including such things as loss of enjoyment of his holiday in the UK and payment towards physiotherapy costs. Commenting on the case Mr X said the following: ‘Very satisfied with the outcome’.
