The claimant was a manager at one of four residential homes run by Sunderland County Council for boys with behavioural difficulties. The homes had one manager for six or seven boys each and were next door to each other. The managers and children came into regular contact, although the managers were the experts for the children in their homes.
In this claim the van operator had packed a generator in his own van and attached his tool belt to it before he later tripped out of the back of the van, presumably on one or other of these items.
Our client was a working visitor at the defendant’s school. She slipped on the corner of a large spillage that was greasy and covered with a white substance: she didn’t see the spillage until after her fall.
