Operation to Repair Knee Following Slip On Wet Floor

03 January 2011

Whilst our client was at a wedding reception she slipped on some liquid which had been spilt on the floor.  She suffered a knee injury following this accident in a public place.  Following the injury our client underwent an operation to repair her knee. The operation was paid for by her private medical insurers so a claim was made to cover the costs of the operation as well as care for the time after the accident and the operation. Liability was admitted by the defendant and with help from our expert accident in a public place solicitors our client was awarded £15,000 in compensation.
