Dispute over flooring in wet leisure environment
I attended site several times to provide expert measurement of slip resistance at a privately owned, council run pool complex. In addition to numerous site visits I met regularly with legal teams, joint and opposing experts, and provided numerous reports. The case was heard at the High Court where I attended for a week and gave evidence orally.
Slip accident on contaminated concrete slab on construction site
Having previously attended site immediately after a nasty accident to conduct testing on the slab, I was later employed in an expert witness role to counter the opposing expert’s interpretation of the situation. The other side relied on assertions that the surface was smooth, and that the surface was slippery when wet. My own report showed that the surface was not smooth and that the surface was not slippery when wet. I was called to give evidence in court, and the matter was settled a few days before the listing.
Slip accident involving product certified by Grip Potential Ltd
A slip occurred on a product certified by Grip Potential as a ‘low risk of slip’ whilst in situ in Australia. I was initially asked to present an expert’s report on the material ramp. I was called to give evidence on the matter in court (via a video link), however the matter was settled immediately prior to the case commencing. My client, bound by a confidentiality clause, could only describe the result as “favourable”.
In addition to the above I have also provided expert reports for more than 50 cases. This does not include a similar number of occasions where I have produced CPR compliant slip accident reports for responsible parties in anticipation of a court case arising. I have conducted approximately 8,000 individual slip risk assessments and product certifications across approximately 750 sites since 2009.
