Holidaymaker wins £4,750 for Falling down a Collapsing Sewer Cover


A holidaymaker has received a settlement of £4,750 after falling down a collapsed sewage cover at the Sensatori Azul Hotel, Riviera Maya in Mexico.

The Sensatori Azul Hotel in Mexico features many activities in their repertoire. Tennis, yoga, beach sports and a round the clock gym are all special features of this resort. But a tumble down a sewage cover into raw sewage is not offered as part of the package deal. However, this is what our holiday goer was confronted with during her stay.

Fall Down a Collapsed Sewage Cover

Compensation Won

While taking a stroll along the path leading from the beach to the hotel, the female holiday goer walked over a sewage cover. The cover then collapsed beneath her, causing her to plummet around 6 feet down the hole. She landed chest deep in raw sewage, with a stench of which we can only imagine.

As a result of this horrendous fall our unfortunate vacationer suffered injuries to her knee, shin, feet and elbow.

Simpson Millar Investigates the Case

On returning to the UK she approached Simpson Millar to help her shine a light on the wrongdoings of First Choice. James Blower, a solicitor with specialist experience in travel claims conducted the matter. At Simpson Millar we specialise in handling compensation claim cases for those who have had an accident whilst on holiday through no fault of their own.

First Choice did not formally admit responsibility for this dreadful accident, although they did initially offer £3,000 compensation. Following, medical reports put forward to support her claim, Simpson Millar were able to win £4,750 for the lady.
