A claim was pursued against the health club on the basis that the tiles covering the floor of the changing area were not safe for the purpose they were intended.
The health club disputed our claim for compensation on the basis that the tiles were standard tiles with a rough surface and a matt finish to aid grip.
We instructed the expert services of a consultant forensic engineer to inspect the swimming pool and health club premises and conduct slip resistance tests.
The tests shown that the tiles in question were not non-slip and our client was successful in her claim, recovering the sum of £1,700 by way of compensation.
