Personal Injury Solicitor Simon Allen on Accident at Work Claim

15 June 2012

Our client was injured in a training exercise. There was water on the floor from fake CS gas spray, which our client slipped on. Liability was denied but proceedings were issued in Sheffield County Court. Allegations of contributory fault maintained. Offers were made but rejected as we felt that our client was blameless. We settled eventually on full liability basis before trial and offers increased from £12000 to £30,000.
