For many people there is no better way to round off a hard day at work than to visit their local pub. It provides a chance to wind down and enjoy a chat with friends or co-workers. Most people who do this have a great time and don’t go home nursing an injury of some kind. However a few people are not so lucky and they experience pub injuries that can be painful, long-lasting and sometimes life altering too.
Is a pub really such a dangerous place?
You wouldn’t think so, would you? For the most part you would be right, but in reality some people do suffer pub injuries they did not cause on their own. When you visit a pub you would expect the landlord and owner to provide a safe place to enjoy a drink and perhaps some bar snacks or a meal as well. However, in some cases the venue falls short.
Examples of pub injuries include being injured by broken glass that is not cleaned up by pub employees, tripping over poorly maintained flooring, slipping on spilt drinks that have not been mopped up, and other similar incidents.
The point is any accident in a pub can be nasty if you are unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of it. If you believe the landlord or another member of staff has been negligent in their duties to provide a safe place to drink in, you may have cause to bring a claim for compensation. If this is the case it is worth getting proper advice prior to taking things any further.
