If you are looking for cafe accident advice on how to make a personal injury claim, call the experts at Accident Advice Helpline. If the accident was caused by the negligence of others you may be entitled to compensation.
Whether you are meeting friends or just enjoying a bit of quiet time, a cafe is the perfect place for a drink and a snack. Cafe owners are required to make their premises safe for all their customers. If they have not fulfilled that requirement, there is a risk of accidents happening.
Cafe accidents may take a variety of forms. A trip caused by poor flooring or equipment lying around might result in a sprain, broken bone or even a serious head or back injury. Spills can make the floor slippery even after they have been mopped up, increasing the risk of a fall. The main purpose of a cafe is to serve drinks and snacks – often hot ones. This could cause a burn, an injury that can be permanently disfiguring.
What to do
If you have suffered an injury in a cafe accident you should first seek medical attention. Many of the injuries may need urgent treatment. Medical records of your injury can be used as evidence by your solicitor when making a personal injury claim.
You should record as many details of the accident as you can and get the names and contact details of any witnesses. Find out if the cafe has also recorded details of your accident.
Also record any expenses you may incur as a result of your cafe accident. These might include medical costs, transport to medical appointments, loss of earnings and temporary or permanent changes needed to your home or vehicle. Your solicitor may be able to claim them back as part of your compensation package.
Accident Advice Helpline was founded in 2000. We believe that everyone who was injured due to the negligence of others should be able to claim the compensation they deserve. In the past, high costs with no guarantee of success mean that few people were able to even contemplate making a personal injury claim.
Our solicitors work on a no win no fee basis so that compensation can be available to everyone entitled to it, not just those who are already rich.
