    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Can you claim if you are injured by a bouncer on a night out?


    If you were injured by a bouncer on a night out, you may be eligible to claim for compensation. Here is why.

    Injured by a bouncer on a night out

    Bouncers are predominantly employed by pubs, clubs and bars to ensure the safety of customers. Their duties include ensuring people are not harassed or injured by drunken individuals, breaking up bar fights, etc.

    During their work, they may be required to evict someone from the premises. They are not, however, supposed to use excessive force. If they do use excessive force and you are subsequently injured, the responsible bouncer will be liable to compensate you for your injuries.

    Proving excessive force

    You will, however, be required to prove that you were injured by a bouncer on a night out, as opposed to having sustained your accidental injuries by a drunken slip or trip. This means you must provide relevant evidence to establish liability and support your claim.

    • Offer you useful bouncer injury advice
    • Help you establish liability
    • Gather all necessary evidence to prove and support your claim
    • Bring your claim to a satisfactory conclusion

    In many cases, our in-house solicitors can prevent claimants having to take their claims to court. As situations vary, we cannot, however, promise you that we will be able to negotiate an out-of-court settlement in your case.

    Time frames and compensation amounts

    Variations in claim circumstances also mean we are unable to tell you exactly how long it will take to finalise your claim or how much compensation you will be awarded.

    100% no-win, no-fee

    We can, however, guarantee that your case will be processed by our legal team under a conditional fee agreement. Better known as a no-win, no-fee claim, this means you pay nothing at the start of your claim. Any expenses (legal and other fees) incurred during the claim process will be paid for by a deduction made from your compensation once your claim has been settled.

    It also means that should the unexpected happen and you are not awarded any compensation, you will not have to pay solicitors’ fees. You may, nonetheless, be asked to pay for legal or other incurred fees.
