Any fall has the potential to cause you some nasty injuries. They might range from cuts and bruises and the odd ache or pain to more serious injuries. A lot will depend on the height you fall from and whether you fall onto anything that could potentially cause you further damage. For instance you might fall onto something sharp and that could cut you or cause a puncture wound of some kind.
Nightclub fall compensation can be issued to individuals if they have been hurt in a nightclub setting and those injuries were not their fault. Obviously, if you drink a little too much and have a fall, this would probably be down to drinking more than you should have done.
However, if you fall because you leaned on a railing on an upper floor, and that railing gave way, you should try claiming compensation as you might have a good case.
Finding out more
Obviously the initial thing to do will be to get medical advice regarding your injuries. They can be very painful, regardless of whether you trip over and fall or you fall from a height. The latter example will likely incur worse injuries but you just never know. Even a simpler fall resulting from a trip could lead you to bang your head, for example.
Most nightclubs are run to exceptionally-high standards and you have nothing to worry about when attending them. However you might end up being hurt in an isolated case because you were simply unlucky. If you attend a nightclub that has not been paying attention to health and safety matters, you could be hurt as a result.
Recovering from your fall
Nightclub fall compensation varies in amounts, simply because not all falls result in the same injuries. The more injuries you have and the more serious they are, the more likely it is you would win more compensation. Similarly, one serious injury could mean you get more compensation than you would for several minor ones.
