We represented a local man who suffered serious injuries whilst out drinking with friends. Whilst standing outside a public house’s entrance in a smoking area, he stepped backwards and tripped on an advertising ‘A’ board and fell down a flight of steps.

He sustained a serious head injury and neurological injuries.

Liability was denied on the basis that the claimant had been drinking and was the author of his own misfortune.

A split trial was required and liability for the client was established as we were able to adduce evidence to establish that the location of the ‘A’ board was inappropriate and exposed lawful visitors to a foreseeable risk of injury and that a heightened duty was owed to those who may have been drinking. The client subsequently received more than £32,000.

Settlement £32,000
