Personal Injury Claim Due to Faulty Car Wash Hose

Published: 13th June 2024

I acted for a client who was using a car wash. He picked up the hose to wash his vehicle. Unfortunately, there was a hole in the hose. The damage to the hose caused the hose to violently react when the water was switched on. The hose was flailing around due to the high-pressure water passing through it, and it whipped our client on the hand several times, causing quite severe injuries to his wrist and finger. As a result, he had to take time off work
and so lost earnings.

Settlement was agreed for £5,953.82
