Damages of $47,500 Australian Dollars recovered following fall from chair in hotel
We recently acted for a retired client, who was injured whilst enjoying a once-in-a-lifetime holiday in Australia. The accident happened when our client sat on a defective chair, which collapsed beneath her in her hotel accommodation, injuring her back.
Because our client had previously had problems with her back, the Defendant tried to argue the accident only caused minimal damage, and that the ongoing problems were not accident-related.
It was important to our client that the Defendant acknowledged responsibility for the accident, and we were able to assist her with obtaining some closure when they did.
After extensive negotiations with the Defendant, we were successful in recovering $47,500 Australian dollars for our client.
