Injury in caravan park

Published: 1st March 2021

We recently acted for a client who attended a holiday park to consider a possible purchase of a caravan.

After inspecting the caravan with the Defendant salesman, our client exited the caravan. He used a set of steps to exit the caravan. The steps were covered with a wooden board. As our client stepped on the bottom step, the step gave way, causing our client’s foot to go through this step and as a result, he sustained an injury to his right leg.

A claim was made to the Defendant insurance company on the grounds that they failed to keep our client reasonably safe when attending their premises and failed to inspect and maintain the steps outside the caravan. The Defendant insurance company admitted liability for the accident.

Following disclosure of medical evidence, our client was awarded £7,000 for his injury.

This case shows the variety of personal injury claims that can arise.
