£2,818 for woman hurt slipping on bathroom floor

Croftons Solicitors have helped a woman secure £2,818 compensation after she hurt her back slipping a on a wet bathroom floor at work.

The claimant was working as a nursery nurse when the incident occurred, and it was found that her employer was to blame for the incident. The toilets where she was working had experienced a lighting fault that meant visibility in the room was poor, while the design of the facility meant that children could easily turn the tap onto full power and cause water to splash onto the floor.

These two factors combined to cause the claimant to slip as she rushed to help a distressed child who was heard screaming in the toilets. She could not see the pool of water on the floor as the lights were not working properly, while no equipment was provided that would have allowed someone to clear up the spillage.

As a result of her fall, she suffered injuries to her back, neck, arm and knees and required a course of physiotherapy before she was able to return to work. To compensate for her injuries, we helped to secure an award of £2,818 on the basis that her employer was negligent in failing to provide a safe work environment.
