Damages Of £19,000 Following Hotel Slip In Menorca
We recently acted for a client who, whilst holidaying abroad, slipped and fell on some steps at the Menorcan hotel’s main lobby. The accident happened when our client was on her way out of the hotel to do some sightseeing. As she exited the hotel, the steps were wet, causing her to lose her footing and fall. There were no handrails on the stairs that might have prevented her fall.
Our client landed on her back following the fall and fractured her spine. Although the client had some minor ongoing pain and discomfort in her back, she has been fortunate enough to make a good recovery.
The client had booked her holiday through a Tour Operator and we pursued a claim against them. The Tour Operator strongly contested liability throughout. We were nonetheless able to secure a settlement for our client in the sum of £19,000.
