Client awarded £1,500 for injury following a fall in hotel

Mark Watts acted for a client following an accident sustained whilst staying at a Hotel.

After checking into the hotel late evening, our client went to his allocated room, which was in darkness, and tripped over boxes that had been left inside the entrance as he searched for the light switch.

The hotel admitted that the boxes had been mistakenly left there by hotel staff and should have been removed prior to our client's arrival.

As our client fell they injured their elbow causing significant pain. Our client was unable to use their arm fully and for 3 weeks they required assistance in dressing and undressing.

For the next few months, our client was in discomfort and was unable to undertake any strenuous activities until they recovered.

Our client was subsequently awarded £1,500 in compensation from the personal injury claim.
