This week, see how Thompsons Solicitors helped an injured health visitor
A health visitor who suffered a fractured foot when she inverted her ankle on uneven paving has won her case against the landlord of the property.
In court, the landlord denied any responsibility for the accident and tried to blame the health visitor, but the Judge preferred our client’s evidence and found the landlord’s previous inspection records unreliable.
The health visitor, who was off work for three months and suffered with symptoms for a further six months, was awarded substantial damages for her injuries and her losses.
Sam Ledgerd of Thompsons, who represented the health visitor, said: “Landlords have a duty to ensure that their premises are reasonably safe for visitors. This case shows that, if landlords fail to adequately inspect their premises and keep them safe, they will end up paying compensation to those they have hurt.”
