We acted for a client on a “no win no fee” basis who instructed us to pursue a claim against the travel company for a slip that occurred whilst he was on holiday in Turkey.
Whilst exiting the shower, he slipped on the tiled floor due to there being no bath mats.
He suffered a minor injury to his back and arm which resolved relatively quickly.
Liability was disputed by the Defendants throughout the course of the claim and we thereafter looked to obtain evidence from an expert in Turkey as to the laws applicable whether in fact bath mats should have been provided.
We were of the view that prospects of success remained good once the report was received which was helpful.
We intimated a letter of claim and proceeded with the matter to the stage of issuing Court proceedings. We also obtained medical evidence in respect of our client’s injuries.
After negotiation with the Defendant, our client received £1,500.00 in respect of his injuries plus payment of our costs. He was extremely happy with the outcome.
