Pyers recently represented a claimant who was employed in a children’s nursery. She suffered an accident whilst required to use a ladder in order to gain access to reset a defective electrical consumer unit. The ladder slipped and the claimant fell some distance suffering multiple minor injuries.
Liability and the value of the personal injury claim were both disputed by the employer’s insurers who maintained that the claimant was the author of her own misfortune.
We successfully argued breaches of Health and Safety regulations and the claimant received compensation of £5,400.
