I dunno. She falls in a club, and by the judges own admission is seen on cctv in a big spill on the floor, has a fractured arm, spends seven years waiting to get a judgment, and is then stuck with a 100k legal bill.
It just doesn't seem right.
Woman in club to man "Do you come here often"
Man relies "Yes, I come here regularly"
Woman "No wonder the floor is so sticky"
Personally, id like to see more reporting of the losses in PI cases rather than focussing on the lotto awards for winning.
Itd be interesting to see the full papers on this case and if a settlement was offered and why they didnt go for the circuit when she was likely to have a significant contribution to her injury.100k for 7 years. Might be worth getting it taxed
