Drinks at the bar with your friends is a great way to spend your Friday night, but be careful when you’re out on the town, as you don’t want to be involved in an accident in a bar. If you’re the designated driver, you might be thinking the chances of being involved in an accident in a bar are slim to none, but even without the influence of alcohol, accidents can and do happen.
Whether you’ve suffered a head injury after a fall or cut yourself on broken glass at the bar, Accident Advice Helpline knows how to get you the compensation you deserve for an accident that wasn’t your fault.
We have hundreds of satisfied customers and we’ve been recommended by our patron, Dame Esther Rantzen, for our excellent customer service, so you can make a claim with confidence.
A night on the tiles
When you’re distracted and having fun with your friends, you might not always be as aware of hazards around you as you are at other times – that doesn’t mean you’re to blame for your accident though. Maybe you’ve cut yourself on a broken glass that somebody has carelessly left on the bar, or slipped on a wet floor after drinks have been spilled. Other injuries sustained in bar accidents could include:
- Tinnitus or hearing loss from excessively loud music
- Broken bones, cuts and bruises or head and facial injuries sustained after falling in a stairwell, often due to poor lighting or hazards such as boxes of stock
- Slip, trip or fall due to poor lighting in the bar area
Injuries suffered in a slip, trip or fall often turn out to very serious indeed and the landlord who owns the bar has a duty of care to ensure that the environment is safe for members of the public. Negligence can easily lead to an accident occurring, and we can help you claim compensation if you have been injured due to somebody else’s negligence – we’ve been helping customers claim since 2000.
No win, no fee*
Many people avoid making a claim as they’re worried about extortionate legal fees or the prospect of going to court.
At Accident Advice Helpline, our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis and most claims can be processed over the phone – it’s unlikely you will have to go to court, as most claims are settled before this point.
