Alcohol poisoning claim

Anyone who serves alcohol on licensed premises or organises an event where there will be alcohol, such as a staff party, has a duty of care to customers or attendees, so if anyone ends up with alcohol poisoning they may be able to make an alcohol poisoning claim.

As far as pubs and clubs are concerned, staff are not supposed to serve customers who appear to be drunk. What is not so widely known is that if alcohol is served at a gathering, the organiser may be liable if someone ends the evening with alcohol poisoning.

Alcohol poisoning can be quite serious. It occurs when there is too much alcohol in the bloodstream. The symptoms of alcohol poisoning include the person becoming confused, physically uncoordinated and slurring their speech, or even falling into unconsciousness. Alcohol poisoning can induce hypothermia, and in extreme cases can lead to seizures because of the lowered blood sugar levels, or possibly death from choking on vomit.

These symptoms highlight the seriousness of alcohol poisoning and why the victim may be able to make a claim for compensation if the bar staff or event organiser failed in their duty of care. While it could be argued that no-one forced the victim to drink, the fact that those responsible failed to prevent them from imbibing what proved to be a dangerous amount of alcohol, is a very serious matter. That’s why you can make an alcohol poisoning claim.

If you have suffered alcohol poisoning, it is important that you seek legal advice when considering making a compensation claim. This is because making a claim for compensation can be complicated at the best of times. Whoever the claim is made against may well deny liability, so the case needs to be strong and legal experts will be able to advise you whether or not your claim is likely to be successful.

Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we are able to put you in contact with solicitors who have experience in advising people who have fallen victim to alcohol poisoning. If we believe that your claim is strong enough to be successful, we also provide representation. Our solicitors will represent anyone making an alcohol poisoning claim on a no win no fee* basis. This means that you will not have to pay any fees unless we win your case.

The evidence you can provide us with will enable us to decide whether you have a viable claim, and if so, to represent you. Your doctor’s report will be crucial, as it will describe the symptoms you suffered. Statements from any witnesses who were with you or saw you at the time you were drinking the alcohol that led to your poisoning will also be important and could also help us to identify who was negligent in their duty of care and ultimately who the claim will be made against.
