Mark’s Losses Loss of earnings: 4 weeks at £450 a week £1,800.00. Replacing glasses, damaged in the accident - £100.00 Taxi fares, when unable to drive at £40.00. He had 2 tickets to a music festival costing £100 each – he wasn’t able to drive, so the tickets were not used. Pain and suffering from broken arm, a badly bruised shin, minor bruising to the head. (£3,500 - £9,500)

Mark’s Solicitor’s Argument Local authority should have made sure the room was safe Leisure centre staff had a responsibility to make sure that the sports hall was safe They failed in this responsibility by not putting the bench away This caused Mark’s injury

Local authority should have made sure the room was safe

Leisure centre staff had a responsibility to make sure that the sports hall was safe

They failed in this responsibility by not putting the bench away

This caused Mark’s injury

Local Authorities Argument Mark saw the bench and didn’t move it or told anyone it was left out There for he contributed to the accident So the damages should be reduced, also know as ‘contributory negligence’

Mark saw the bench and didn’t move it or told anyone it was left out

There for he contributed to the accident

So the damages should be reduced, also know as ‘contributory negligence’

My Opinion I think Mark should get a reduced amount of money because he did see the bench and didn’t move it He should get money for any medical treatment he needs (?) the money he has missed out on as he hasn’t been able to go to work (£1,800.00) Money he used to replace his glasses (£100) Taxi fares (£40)
