Unguarded Trapdoor Fall Victim Awarded 20,000 Pounds Compensation

Posted on: June 9th, 2011

A London courier, who sustained multiple injuries when falling through an unguarded trapdoor at the Albannach Whisky Restaurant Bar near Trafalgar Square, is to receive 20,000 pounds in personal injury compensation.

Ian Barnes, from Gunthorpe in Cambridgeshire, was completing a delivery to the London pub in April 2009, when he fell through a trap door that had been left open. Crashing heavily into the cellar below, Ian broke his back and tore his cruciate ligament in his knee. His injuries needed major surgery and a long period of rehabilitation.

After seeking legal guidance, Ian, who runs his own delivery company E & C Barnes Courier Services, sued the Albannach Whisky Restaurant Bar for the injuries he sustained in the accident and for lost earnings during his recovery. In an out-of-court settlement, the city bar accepted it´s liability and agreed on the 20,000 pounds settlement.

2,000 Pounds in Dog Bite Injury Compensation

Posted on: September 24th, 2010

A dog owner has been ordered to pay 2,000 pounds dog bite injury compensation after her Staffordshire Bull Terrier attacked and bit another dog owner’s arm.

Kidderminster Magistrates Court heard how the unnamed owner from Bewdley, Hereford and Worcestershire, had permitted her dog off the lead in a wooded area off the Cleobury Road.

The dog ran over to a close by Jack Russell, and its owner – fearing the smaller dog was about to be attacked – bent forward to pick her dog up.

The Bull Terrier then bit the second owner, ripping a chunk out of her arm and leaving the injury in need of stitches which will result in a permanent scar.

During the hearing, the owner of the Bull Terrier was told to pay the victim 2,000 pounds compensation and ensure that her dog wears a muzzle at all times.
