The last thing you want when you are out enjoying an evening off and going out to relax and socialise is an event that results in a bouncer accident claim. Fortunately, not many of us will suffer injury as a result of the actions of nightclub doormen, although this is a reality for some.
All bouncers are now regulated by the Security Industry Authority and are fully trained and subsequently licensed as being able act in a professional and non-judgemental manner toward all guests. Bouncers do not have the same rights as police officers: they cannot arrest or detain you and they must only use as much force as is deemed reasonable in the circumstances to either remove a person from the premises or prevent their entry. It is widely acknowledged that establishments where large amounts of alcohol are consumed have an increased risk of violent and aggressive behaviour. Bouncers are tasked with defusing any incidents with the focus on protecting the customers of the establishment.
We have all heard of stories where bouncers have stepped outside the boundaries of their role and Accident Advice Helpline has considerable experience and expertise in dealing with bouncer accident claims where a person has received an injury at the hands of doormen.
We have over 14 years’ experience of handling claims where a person has suffered injury through the actions of others, including claims against establishments employing bouncers. If you have been injured, our dedicated team will advise and guide you through the claims process and ensure you are represented by one of our in-house expert lawyers who has extensive knowledge and experience in your area of claim. All our services are based on a no win, no fee* basis so there are no upfront fees to be paid, something that can sometimes discourage victims from claiming.
