  • Overview

    Oliver Chapman, specialist personal injury lawyer based at Thomson Snell & Passmore’s Tunbridge Wells and Dartford (Thames Gateway) offices, has secured £7,000 for a claimant who suffered a ruptured hamstring when she slipped on a spillage at B&Q.

    The claimant was in her 40s and had been medically retired due to problems with her knees. She walked with the aid of a crutch.

    Whilst attending B&Q she slipped on some spilt anti-freeze and tore one of her hamstrings in her left thigh. Significant bruising developed.

    We were instructed pursuant to a conditional fee agreement and whilst B&Q admitted primary liability relatively promptly, they alleged that the claimant was 50% contributory negligent for a perceived failure to take notice of wet floor signs.

    However, contemporaneous photographs demonstrated that the warning signs had been erected behind a display of anti-freeze and the spillage had spread across the aisle. It was perfectly foreseeable that a customer would walk along the aisle looking at the items on the shelves rather than the floor. The defendant made a further allegation of contributory negligence, this time in the order of 20%, which was again not accepted and the case settled on a full liability basis for £7,000 plus costs.

    Oliver Chapman specialises in slipping and tripping claims. If you would like to ask Oliver a question about a potential case, or have a general query about any personal injury, please contact him on 01892 701234 in confidence.
