Mr G was 51 at the time of his injury, which occured in 2013 when he was on holiday at an overseas beach resort. Mr G was on the beach when a parasol was blown out of its base and struck him on the crown of his head.
Details of these Minor Head Injuries
After his head injury took place, Mr G was taken to the local health centre where he sought minor head injury treatment, including treatment for the cut which the parasol had left. Six weeks later after Mr G had undergone a period of minor head injury recovery time, he was left with a 3cm scar on the crown his head where the cut had been, which was highly visible as his hair no longer grew over the scar tissue. He was left with no other minor head injury symptoms.

The Allegation and the Compensation Settlement for the Minor Head Injury
Mr G (the Claimant) decided to pursue personal injury compensation against the holiday company (the Defendant) on the grounds that the parasol that struck him on the head was faulty and shouldn’t have been able to come loose. He worked in a customer facing job, so was disappointed to be left with a visible scar and the effect it could have on his career. The allegation was made that under the Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992, the holiday company had been negligent and had breached their duty of care towards Mr G as a customer.
Fortunately, the Defendant admitted liability. Mr G was awarded a settlement of £6,000. The settlement took place out of court.
