MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. The claim for 1 mln rubles ($14,680) of compensation filed by a Muscovite Tigranul Martirosyan against McDonalds on damages for falling down on a slippery floor in one of Moscow’s outlets has been upheld by the city’s Tver Court in part, TASS correspondent reported from the court hearing Friday.
"The court held to penalize McDonalds in the amount of 15,000 rubles ($220) for court costs and 50,000 ($734) as non-pecuniary damage," the judge announced the decision.
The company’s representative said the claim was frivolous as it was raining on the day of the incident and the affected party could have slipped due to wet footwear. Martirosyan said she slipped on the wet floor in one of the company’s outlets in Moscow in May last year and suffered a displaced fracture of hand.
"I assume the specified circumstances are subject to partial satisfaction, meaning 20,000 ruble worth of compensation for court costs. As far as non-pecuniary damage in the amount of 1 mln rubles is concerned I assume 40,000 rubles ($587) is a reasonable sum to be compensated," the prosecutor said.
