Slip at Work due to Overgrown Moss

Lanyon Bowdler was instructed to act by the claimant who slipped at work due to overgrown moss on a blocked pathway. As a result of the accident the claimant sustained an injury to her shoulder which required surgical repair. The medical evidence advised that the claimant had also sustained exacerbation of pre-existing shoulder problems of five years. Whilst liability was admitted, the defendant insurers were not prepared to agree an appropriate level of damages and it was therefore necessary to issue court proceedings. Shortly after service and before a defence was filed, the case was concluded.
