Our legal team recently demonstrated their expertise in occupiers liability cases by settling a very unusual case of a fall at a bus depot. Building works were being carried out an the builders had covered a hole with large sheet of cast iron creating a clear trip hazard.
Our client who was walking towards her bus tripped over the edge of this trap and fell causing a nasty injury to her hand and arm. She had to remain off work for one month and had symptoms for just over one year.
Tripping cases are often hard fought but in this case the client was quick witted enough to take excellent photos on her mobile phone of the trip hazard before it was hastily removed. This saved the evidence in her case leading to an early resolution.
