Man Receives Compensation for Slipping on a Greasy Floor at a Fast Food Restaurant

Case Overview
  • Our client sustained a rotator cuff tear in the supraspinatus tendon as a result of slipping on a greasy floor at a fast food restaurant.
  • He made attempts to recover through physiotherapy, but was informed his injury would require surgery.
  • His injury would cause difficulties with his employment and everyday living in the future.

“While our client was recovering from his surgery, his compensation lawyers were hard at work collecting the medical and liability evidence necessary to ensure he received the maximum amount in compensation.”

Our Approach

We organised for our client to be assessed by our expert medico-legal doctors, who provided a report detailing our client’s ongoing disabilities and restrictions. Although our client continued his rehabilitation efforts, it was clear that his injury would cause difficulties with his employment and everyday living into the future, and thus, we explored every avenue of compensation available to him.

Once we had collected all of the medical and liability evidence in support of our client’s claim, an informal settlement conference was arranged to see if a settlement could be reached without the need for a Court hearing. We were able to negotiate a settlement, providing our client with financial security whilst continuing his rehabilitation.

The Result

The compensation claimed on behalf of our client included damages for his pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, and domestic assistance.
