A HR representative who sustained a fractured wrist after tripping over a rope outside of a pub in London.
Following the incident, Carmen Mazo, suffered an injury as a result of her fall in the Notting Hill area. As well as suffering pain due to the incident, she also claims that the accident destroyed her career and resulted in her having unsightly scars and post-traumatic arthritis. Furthermore she also claimed that the incident had a devastating impact on her mental health and social life.
The legal action currently being sought by Mazo comes despite the claimant having already taken legal action. In 2013, Mazo was awarded £156,871 at Central London county court after she sued the pub’s operators and they admitted liability for the accident. However, she has been given permission to appeal against the amount she was awarded as she believes that she is entitled to a significantly larger sum.
