A waitress in a sandwich bar who fell downstairs at work, has been awarded a five figure settlement of her work injury compensation claim.

If you have been injured at work call us to find out if you can make a claim.

The 34 year old female employee was heading downstairs with a empty tray when she slipped and fell. Previously the same employee had complained how dangerous the stairs were, highlighting the fact the rubber strips at the edge of the stairs were unsafe because they were coming loose.

While her employers had removed the strips, they had failed in their duty of care to replace the strips which left metal exposed. It was the exposed metal which caused the waitress to fall and injure herself.

After the fall she suffered damaged ribs and whiplash requiring physiotherapy, in addition she also suffered blurred vision and headaches for over 6 months after the incident.

A claim for compensation was made against her employer for negligence.

After negotiation an out of court settlement of £47,500 was agreed for her loss of amenities, medical care, loss of earnings and pain & suffering.
