    How to claim bouncer injury compensation

    How to claim bouncer injury compensation

    Bouncers work on the front doors of nightclubs and bars, deciding who gets in (and who doesn’t), checking ID and preventing any trouble. Well, that’s the idea anyway. Working as a bouncer does come with its risks though and it’s important that your employer understands these risks and takes steps to protect you whilst you’re at work. For those who have been injured, bouncer injury compensation could be available which will compensate you for your injuries if somebody else was liable for your accident – for example, your employer.

    Many people miss out by waiting too long to make a claim for bouncer injury compensation, so don’t be one of them. Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim provided it’s been three years or less since your accident.

    How could bouncers be injured?

    Bouncers working at a bar or nightclub could sustain a range of injuries in different situations, but here are some of the most commonly reported ones:

    • Assault by a member of the public, leading to cuts, bruises, broken bones and more serious injuries
    • Slip, trip or fall, for example slipping on a wet floor after drinks have been spilled
    • Lacerations from broken glasses in the pub/nightclub
    • Crush injuries if a large crowd force their way into an establishment and you’re knocked over

    If you’ve been injured at work, ask yourself the following – who is to blame for my accident? It might be that your employer didn’t provide you with the training you needed to handle yourself in the event of an assault, or maybe they failed to ensure broken glass or spilt drinks were cleaned up promptly, leading to your injuries. Whether you’ve suffered serious injuries following an assault or sprained your ankle after slipping on a wet floor, you could be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation. But why should you choose Accident Advice Helpline? Well, we’ve been endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen, and we offer a 100% no win, no fee** service, so there’s nothing to lose if you decide to make a claim.

    How much compensation will you receive?

    Obviously you won’t be able to return to work straight away if you’ve sprained your ankle or suffered facial injuries after an assault, so Accident Advice Helpline will take into account lost wages when we work out your personal injury settlement. The more life-changing or serious your injuries, the higher the settlement you should expect to receive. But don’t wait around wondering – call our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 to find out if you have a viable claim.
