The Law On Claiming For A Fall At Work
Employers have a legal duty to take care for the safety of their employees.
There are strict regulations about taking steps to reduce the risk of falls at work.
All ” traffic routes” (anywhere that you might walk) must be constructed from suitable materials.
And all traffic routes should be kept free from obstacles and hazards.
Margaret’s Fall At Work Claim
Margaret provided a detailed statement about the dangerous condition of the stairs.
We also obtained photographs of the dangerous stairs.
So we were sure that the stairs in this case were dangerous.
And we were happy to deal with Margaret’s claim on “no win no fee” terms.
A detailed Letter of Claim was sent to the insurers for the hotel.
But they initially denied liability for the accident.
So we issued court proceedings on Margaret’s behalf.
Medical experts provided us with evidence about Margaret’s injuries.
The insurers for the hotel then entered into negotiations with us as we were approaching a trial.
Following those negotiations Margaret accepted a settlement offer of £20000.
