A John Lewis worker who was left with a brain injury after slipping on a wet floor is suing the department store for more than £50,000.
Ronald Catchick claims he still has headaches, dizziness and memory problems after he fell at the Watford branch. Mr Catchick, 67, from Chorleywood, is claiming damages from John Lewis for personal injury following the “blow to the head”.
The claim states that in June 2011 Mr Catchick was walking through the men’s locker room when he slipped on water that had accumulated on the floor. He was left with post-traumatic amnesia and bleeding on the brain.
He was admitted to Watford General Hospital and transferred to the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. He was discharged after four days but could not work for four months.
The claim form says Mr Catchick believes the injury may have caused the onset or acceleration of dementia. It alleges John Lewis PLC breached health and safety rules by failing to keep the workplace in good order.
A John Lewis spokesperson said: “This is an on-going legal matter and as such we are unable to comment.”
