    How to claim bar staff injury compensation


    Have you been injured whilst working behind a bar? Sure, it may not seem like the most dangerous job in the world, but there are actually a number of hazards lurking which could leave you injured if your employer doesn’t take health and safety seriously. Luckily, bar staff injury compensation is available which you could claim if this has happened to you – and you can trust Accident Advice Helpline to help you claim it. We specialise in personal injury claims and we won’t charge any upfront fees – our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee** basis.

    Your employer could be responsible

    It’s your employer’s duty to keep you safe at work and pubs need to take special care to look after their staff. There are laws in place to protect staff at work in a pub environment, and it’s important that health and safety is taken seriously. Bar staff could sustain cuts or lacerations from broken glasses or bottles, they could slip on spilled drinks – a common occurrence in bars – which could lead to broken bones, strains and sprains and even head injuries, as they could hit their head on the bar or a table as they fall.

    Bar staff could even be knocked over by patrons who are under the influence, again leading to a potentially serious injury. If you’ve been injured, consider claiming bar staff injury compensation from your employer, as they have failed to keep you safe at work. Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury advisors will be able to tell you if you have a viable claim and offer confidential, no-obligation advice, so you can call to discuss your accident in more detail.

    Should you make a claim?

    Don’t be afraid to make a personal injury claim against your employer – it’s highly unlikely that you’ll need to go to court and you could be compensated for your pain, suffering and any lost earnings, if your claim is successful. It just takes a quick call to Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 (it’s free to call), to find out if you have a viable claim. Provided it’s been three years or less since your accident, you could make a claim and receive the compensation you deserve – and you won’t be at risk of losing your job.

    Your employer should have liability insurance which pays out in the event of an employee claim, so there’s really nothing to worry about. We’ll support you throughout the claims process and because we have years of experience, you know you’re in good hands.
