We represented a local Swansea woman who was injured after she visited a well known bar in the city centre with a group of friends.
Another customer had spilt a drink on the floor and the bar staff had failed to clean it up. As a result, our client slipped on the spillage and injured her wrist.
The accident victim appointed us to claim compensation for her on a no win, no fee basis.
We contacted the owners of the bar in Swansea, but they denied responsibility for the accident. The bar owners said that they had an adequate system in place for inspecting and cleaning the premises. We disagreed and pressed on with the claim. Our persistence paid off because the bar’s insurers eventually agreed with our legal submissions and made an offer of compensation.
Our client was delighted with the proposal and agreed to accept the money on offer.
Accordingly the bar accident claim was settled on a negotiated basis without the need for court proceedings.
