    South Derbyshire-based inspector reprimands ignorant restaurant

    In 2012 a top Derby restaurant was dubbed ‘dirty’ following a visit from a hygiene inspector. The venue featured in a story in the Derby Telegraph and was once crowned the best in Derby. But the restaurant was given a hygiene score of one out of five, proving that its owners –and others like them– need to be aware that health and safety is of paramount importance. With a number of failings, the restaurant was reprimanded for its absence of soap and hand drier, damaged walls and ‘dirty’ door seals. The story serves as a lesson to all restaurant staff and owners, to abide by laws to keep health and safety at work a high priority.

    Elsewhere, around a similar time of year, a private nursing home received a one of out five hygiene score too, highlighting that companies really do have to be aware of the consequences. For example, slips, trips and falls caused as a result of a wet floor without a wet floor sign could result in a claim being made via a company like Accident Advice Helpline.

    Claiming compensation for a restaurant injury or illness

    If you’ve been the victim of such an instance, or received bad service as a result of poor hygiene in a restaurant or another public venue, you may be entitled to a pay-out via a public liability claim. In this situation, don’t be embarrassed to seek advice. After all, you may have paid money for a substandard meal in an often substandard venue.

    Slipped or tripped as a result of poor signage in a restaurant? You haven’t really got anything to lose with a no win no fee* slips injury claim, which can help you gain the compensation you may deserve after a painful injury.

    Restaurants, bars and other public venues have an obligation to abide by strict health and safety laws to ensure the public does not come to any harm while on their premises. That said, if you do suffer a fall, or even bad service as a result of staff ignorance it really is important that you speak up.

    Trips and slips injury claims are becoming more common, as people realise that venues may be to blame for their staff members’ ignorance. Obviously, it’s preferable not to be involved in an accident in the first place, but if you are involved in such an instance don’t be afraid to take the appropriate action.
