Compensation for woman injured in a Swansea bar

Mrs A, along with a number of her friends, visited a bar in Swansea, South Wales. Whilst in the bar the she slipped on a spillage which the bar staff had failed to clean up. As a result she fell and suffered a soft tissue injury to her left wrist.

The client appointed us to bring an accident compensation claim on a no win, no fee basis. A letter of claim was sent to bar owners in Swansea, who denied liability on the basis that they had a reasonable system of cleaning and inspection in place. Despite this denial of liability, we pursued the claim on behalf of Mrs A, obtaining supporting medical evidence. Our tenacity paid off when the bar owners finally made an offer to settle the claim without the need for Court proceedings. Mrs A was prepared to accept their compensation offer and the accident claim was settled on her behalf.

The defendant claimed that he should have avoided the puddle but due to the road layout, this would have placed him in a dangerous situation. The holiday park accident claim that was exacerbated by poor lighting where a tourist fractured his hip following a trip over broken tarmac that was not adequately visible due to the poor lighting conditions. Alternatively, read the horse riding injury claim where a horse was spooked by traffic causing it to hit a fance leading to lacerations of the rider, the case was interesting due to the complexity of who was actually liable.
