Journalist wins ladder injury claim

Press release from: Browns Ladders

A sports journalist has received a large amount of compensation following a ladder accident at a well-known football club.

His fall caused shoulder and neck injuries and gave him concussion.

The money he received as ladder accident compensation was decided in an out-of-court settlement.

The journalist's ladder accident claim solicitor said that his client had previously complained about the 'Dickensian' state of facilities for radio and TV reporters at the ground.

He said: "In my view this was an accident waiting to happen, and the case highlighted the need for all clubs to provide safe access to their premises."
