Pub waitress injured by falling gas canister


Our client was working as a waitress in a public house when she sustained injury to her foot. She had entered the stock room to retrieve some stock to replenish the bar when a large gas canister, used for pumps within the public house, suddenly and without warning fell towards her and landed on her left foot.

As a result, she sustained a crushed left foot injury predominantly to her left big toe. Liability was admitted by her employer for improper storage of such canisters. As a result of our help, she received £4,500 in compensation.
