Client awarded £9,000 after slipping on coat hanger
Pauline Smith, associate and personal injury claims handler recently settled a case for a claimant who had sustained injury due to slipping on a coat hanger which had been left on the floor.
The claimant visited her local Primark store. As she was proceeding through the store, her left foot slipped backwards on a coat hanger which had been left on the floor. She fell forwards and landed on her face and right arm.
On attending the hospital, the claimant suffered with a fractured right wrist, a laceration to her lower lip and a cut to her right eyebrow. The claimant underwent a manipulation of her right wrist and had a k-wire inserted under general anaesthetic .She was provided with a cast for two weeks. Following this, the claimant went for physiotherapy on her right wrist. For the laceration to her lower lip she had five internal sutures which left the claimant with a small scar, and the laceration to her right eyebrow was treated with glue and steristrips and healed over a period of two weeks.The claimant was left with a faint two centimetre scar just above her eyebrow.
After Stephensons proceeded with the case against the property owners, the case was settled and the claimant received £9,000 compensation.
