Bank manager receives damages after temporary steps collapse.

A mobile exhibition stand, comprising a trailer with three metal steps leading up to it from ground level was opened to the public. The woman was descending the trailer but unfortunately as she stepped onto the top step the centre section suddenly fell away from the trailer, causing her to fall to the ground.

The woman was left with serious and persistent knee problems whilst developing traumatic carpal tunnel syndrome in her right wrist.

Despite a vigorous Defence from the Ministry Of Defence (part of the defence was that the woman had run down the steps and simply fallen over) Garratts personal injury team were able to recover compensation of £8,000.
