Call the personal injury specialists at Accident Advice Helpline if you need to make a cafe accident claim and find out if you are entitled to compensation.
The law says that if you suffer financially from an accident that was caused by the negligence of others then you are entitled to compensation. However, in the past it has been hard for most people to claim. Worries of high legal fees when you already have enough worries about your injury discourage most people.
Since 2000, Accident Advice Helpline has been working to make sure that everyone is able to claim the compensation they are entitled to. Our solicitors work on a no win no fee basis so that making a personal injury claim becomes an option for anyone injured in an accident that was not their fault.
A cafe accident might result in a variety of injuries. A poorly arranged or maintained cafe could result in a trip causing sprains or broken bones. If you also hurt your head or back, these injuries could be life changing.
Carelessly handled hot drinks and food might result in burns or scalds. These will often need medical treatment and can even cause permanent disfigurement.
Spills can make floors slippery even after they have been mopped up. The cafe owner should display appropriate warnings to avoid the risk of injury.
What to do if you are injured
If you are injured in a cafe accident, the most important thing to do is to seek medical assistance. Hopefully this will help you recover quickly from your injuries but will also mean there is medical documentation of your accident and the impact it has had on your health. This will be used as evidence by your solicitor if you decide to make a personal injury claim.
Try to record the details of the cafe accident while they are still fresh in your mind, and find out the names and contact information of any witnesses. If anyone is able to, take a photograph of the accident scene and any hazards involved.
It is important to keep records of any expenses you incur as a result of your injury. These can include costs of treatment, loss of earnings and transport to medical appointments. These will form the basis of your compensation package. If in doubt keep receipts and ask your solicitor if it is relevant.
