    Liability for injuries sustained in a pub


    Many of us enjoy a drink and a catch up at the local pub at the weekends, but what happens when a quiet drink ends up in an unexpected accident, causing injuries sustained in a pub?

    If you’’ve suffered a slip, trip or fall at a pub, or any other public place through no fault of your own, you have the right to claim compensation.

    Who is liable for injuries sustained in a pub?

    If you’’ve been involved in an accident in a public place, it is possible that somebody else was liable. If you’’ve had an accident on a night out, it may be possible to claim for injuries sustained in a pub.

    If you tripped over a broken tile, you slipped on a wet floor, which wasn’’t marked, or you fell as a result of poor lighting, for example, you may have a case for public liability compensation.

    All pub owners and managers have a duty of care to protect their patrons from injuries and accidents; they can do this by employing trained staff, using safety warnings and adhering to the latest health and safety guidelines. If you feel that you were injured as a result of their negligence, you may wish to pursue a public liability claim.

    Open Claim Calculator

    You can claim for injuries sustained in a pub if you can prove that you were not at fault and the accident was caused by negligence on the part of the manager or their representatives. You will not be able to claim personal injury compensation if you were involved in a public place accident as a result of your own misjudgement. For example, you would not be able to claim for a fall in a pub if weren’’t looking where you were going at the time.

    How can I make a claim?

    If you’’ve been injured in a public place and you were not at fault, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim the payout you deserve.
