Man seeking compensation after hotel fall

Man seeking compensation after hotel fall

A man is seeking compensation from the owners of a Devon hotel after sustaining life-changing injuries in an accident there.

David Atherley is taking legal action against the Clock Tower Hotel in Exeter as he required two operations, a titanium plate insert and several months of rehabilitation after falling down some steps there, the Plymouth Herald reports.

As a result, the 28-year-old's High Court writ claims he is now at risk of developing both dementia and epilepsy due to the sensory and memory issues this incident has left him with.

Mr Atherley, a former hospital manager, was at the premises - which has 18 rooms - visiting his partner in 2009 and says the stairs leading up to a staff flat there were unfit for purpose and should have been fitted with a handrail.

He told the news source: "The biggest thing for me now is poor memory, forgetting people's names within five minutes of being told. I have orientation problems and no concentration."
