Furniture Compensation Claims

Our client made a Furniture Compensation Claim after she was at a Pub with her family hoping to enjoy a meal when her chair collapsed.  Unfortunately, the chair she was sitting on collapsed under her leaving her in agony.  She was taken to Hospital by ambulance and was diagnosed with a fractured coccyx which is an extremely painful injury.

Who is to blame for a Furniture Compensation Claim

“After approaching and being turned away by numerous Solicitors, we spoke to her and agreed to take her Furniture Compensation Claim on.  The claim was made against the Pub because for a chair to collapse like that, they must have failed to have a reasonable system of inspection and maintenance to ensure their chair were safe to sit on.

At first the Pub refused to accept there was a problem saying 1000’s of customers sat on the chairs each week without issue.  We pointed out that they didn’t inspect the chairs and with so many people sitting on them they were bound to develop defects.  They backed down and agreed to compensate our client, much to her satisfaction.”


“Our client suffered a serious faulty furniture injury as a result of this avoidable accident at a Pub.  We proved that the Pub exposed our client to a danger and didn’t take enough care for her safety.”
