The mix of alcohol and a busy environment could easily lead to accidents in bars – and we’re not talking about the types of accident which occur when you’re drunk.
When you think about it, slipping in a bar could easily occur as there is the potential for spillages and wet floors to cause accidents.
Suffered a serious injury after slipping in a bar? Accident Advice Helpline could help you on the road to recovery by helping you to make a personal injury claim, provided it’s been three years or less since your accident.
How have you been injured?
Injuries sustained after slips, trips and falls in a bar can range from minor cuts and bruises to serious, life-changing injuries. Here are a few of the most commonly reported bar injuries:
- Broken bones or strains and sprains
- Back injuries
- Cuts – from falling on to broken glass
- Facial injuries such as cuts and bruises
- Head injuries, if you strike your head as you fall
- Neck and shoulder injuries such as whiplash
- Knocked out teeth
- Crush injuries – for example if you are trampled or trod on after falling
As you can see, some of these injuries are more serious than others – facial injuries could take a long time to heal or may cause scarring that affects your confidence in future. A back injury could make it difficult for you to return to work, as standing or sitting still for long periods can cause pain.
As well as the physical pain of an injury, you could suffer financially too, as taking time off work for treatment or recovery can leave you affected by loss of earnings that could make paying your mortgage and other household bills a real challenge.
