    Glass door accident results in serious injuries and compensation

    By David Brown on July 18, 2014

    Glass door accident results in serious injuries and compensation

    Jeannie Simmonds experienced serious injuries in an accident with a glass door around three years ago. The five-star London hotel, the Jumeirah Carlton Tower, was the scene of the glass door accident which saw Mrs Simmonds suffer injuries that included cuts and a partially severed tendon that required surgery. A legal battle has been taking place as the wife of a former US Ambassador decided that she required half a million pounds worth of damages from the London hotel. Mrs Simmonds was taking a post-swim shower in the Knightsbridge hotel and as she attempted to open the shower door handle, the glass shattered and this resulted in the injuries previously mentioned. Thereafter, Mrs Simmonds accused the Jumeirah hotel of negligence and the compensation claim ensued. Since this glass door accident, Jeannie told the court that she had difficulties with mobility for up to seven months as a result of the injuries. The hotel has subsequently accepted liability and the next hearing will help to decide the final amount to be awarded to Mrs Simmonds.
