M v AUL

Barrister:

Area of law:

Robert Mills

20 November 2015

Robert represented the claimant who had slipped on a wet floor while visiting a factory and hit her head. She sustained a brain injury such that her sense of smell and taste became severely impaired. The defendant took the case to trial on the multi-track and five witnesses gave evidence. The Court found for the claimant under the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957 on the basis that the defendant could have done more to keep the claimant reasonably safe as a visitor at the factory. Damages were awarded in the sum of £36,000.00.
