Our client made a claim after suffering an accident at work
Our client jarred his back and twisted his ankle after grabbing onto a handrail when he lost his balance on a staircase at work.
It transpired that the stairway flooring was in poor condition, and two months after the accident, our client’s employer replaced it.
The Judge found that, had the flooring been maintained properly and adequately inspected, the accident would not have occurred. He awarded our client compensation from his employer.
Thompsons Solicitors comment: “Our client was going about his normal business at work - he did not expect that his employer would have allowed the flooring to deteriorate so much that it became a danger to him. This case should be a wake-up call to employers to make sure they keep their buildings safe.”
