PHC Law Helps Hotel Waitress Receive £2,100 Settlement

Preston, United Kingdom (2nd October, 2012) – PHC Law, specialist personal injury solicitors who take cases on a no win no fee basis, have successfully recovered £2,100.00 compensation for a lady who suffered minor soft tissue injuries whilst at work.

When she called upon PHC Law personal injury solicitors, the lady’s claim was handled by one of the firm’s senior consultant solicitors, Mr John Cooper.

The victim worked as a waitress in a hotel. Whilst on lunch one day, she walked through one of the bars not then in use. The cellar door had been left open by the manager – there had been no warnings and the barrier to prevent access had not been put in place. As a result, she fell down into the cellar.

Mr Cooper said: “Employers by law have a duty of care and responsibility to uphold the health and safety of their employees. In this case, my client was extremely fortunate to have not suffered a more serious injury. However, the circumstances of the accident were still very traumatic for her.

“I am very pleased that my client has made a good recovery, but unfortunately accidents can happen and I would urge anyone who has been involved in an accident through no fault of their own, no matter how trivial, to get in touch with us.”

The insurers initially argued that the accident was the lady’s fault and that she somehow stepped over the barrier. In the event, liability was finally conceded following the persistence and tenacity from her solicitor. Mr Cooper and the claimant received £2,100 compensation in full.
