Insurance companies note: Common sense judgement in claim against Ronnie Scott's

Common sense judgement from Judge Heather Baucher:
She said that Eren Hussein, who claimed against Ronnie Scott's Club after falling down stairs, was intoxicated, obese, wearing shoes with high platform heels and not taking care by holding the bannister as she descended.

Mrs Hussein said that the bannister was on the right whilst she was on the left.  Judge Baucher stated that this should not have prevented her from using the rail as the stairs were only 1m wide. "Mrs Hussein, at 115kg must have taken up much of the width of the stairway."

The claim against Ronnie Scott's was thrown out.
