A GUEST left writhing in agony when she slipped on the dancefloor at a pal’s wedding has won nearly £32,000 damages — from the groom’s household.
Gosia Anthony, 49, snapped her hamstring when she slid in spilled drink at Ania Richardson’s reception.
Her harm required surgical course of which left her with a five-inch scar, and stays in ache from three screws used to reattach the tendons.
She sued the pub operator — a company owned and run by members of groom Chris Richardson’s household.
Now a resolve has awarded her £31,871 and educated the pub operator to pay her authorized prices of about £50,000.
Ms Anthony was injured when she slipped on the puddle of water at the White Horse, in Welwyn, Herts.
The spillage was from a water dispenser which had no drip tray.
Council employee Ms Anthony, from Plymouth, acknowledged: “It was practically like I heard elastic breaking.
“I felt one issue snap.”
“Venue operator Cellar Door Pubs denied liability but bosses did not turn up at the central London county court hearing.
The resolve dismissed claims Ms Anthony was drunk or might have seen the spillage.
