If you have decided to make a compensation claim following a personal injury then you may be wondering where to…
Have you suffered a personal injury in an accident in a pub, nightclub or bar? Then you can make a claim for compensation with our personal injury solicitors. Licensees have a duty of care towards their customers and must take out public liability insurance to cover them in the event of an accident on their premises.
What form do accidents in pubs, bars and nightclubs take? These are just a few of the cases personal injury solicitors deal with.
Spilled drinks pose a slipping hazard and must be cleaned up immediately. Warning signs should be used to inform customers that floors are wet due to cleaning, and areas can even be blocked off should this be necessary. Slips and falls into broken glass can lead to serious personal injuries. Flooring defects, steps and poor lighting can also lead to slips and trips.
People are considerably more likely to be the victim of an assault or to commit an assault when they are under the influence of alcohol. Bouncers and door staff are also known to assault customers. If you have been the victim of an assault, then file a police report and contact us to claim criminal injuries compensation.
Intoxicated people should not be served any more alcohol, and any food served should be safe to consume. When companies fail in this respect, their customers can fall seriously ill and can die as a result. Injured parties or their loved ones may be able to sue for compensation if it can be shown that the establishment behaved in a negligent fashion.
Gathering evidence can increase the size of your compensation claim and give you the best possible chance of success. Collect the contact details of witnesses, seek medical attention, and take photographs of the defects that led to your injury.
