CHAIR COLLAPSES

Our client, who is a very heavy man and who already had suffered a previous back injury had the misfortune of re-injuring his lower back when the plastic chair which was provided to him at a function in Wollongong collapsed underneath him.

Our client sued the proprietor of the place where the accident occurred on the basis that the chair which was provided to him was unsafe and inappropriate.

After a protracted claim, which involved the commencement of proceedings in the Supreme Court the claim was finally settled after many attempts to engage the insurer and its lawyers in bona fide discussions.
