A mother of four in Leamington has been awarded an injury compensation payout after she hurt herself at a major West Midlands tourist attraction.
Sally Morris was sledging down a piste at the Snowdome in Tamworth and was unable to exit from the slope due to a long queue, the Birmingham Post reports.
However, it was revealed that staff were still allowing people on toboggans to continue sliding down the slope and she was hit from behind by another visitor, causing injuries to her spine and kidneys.
The claim was first brought forward in 2006, but the Snowdome maintained that it had adequate risk assessments and training in place to prevent such incidents.
It was only when Mrs Morris initiated court proceedings that the firm admitted liability and agreed to pay injury compensation, the paper reports.
It follows reports in the Herald that a man is seeking injury compensation after his health was damaged by a toxic sofa from Land of Leather.
