Most of us look forward to nights out once in a while. Whether it is a trip to a pub, club or restaurant, it’s only reasonable to expect we will have a good time. The last thing you would assume would happen would be to slip or trip on a spillage on the floor. In situations like these, slipping on a spilled drink can lead to some nasty injuries. If you fall over backwards you could hit your head and it is also possible to injure other parts of your body as you try to break your fall.
Restaurants, pubs and other venues all have a duty of care to ensure their premises are safe for everyone to use and enjoy. Spillages should be cleaned up as quickly as possible and warning signs should be in place if they cannot be cleaned up immediately. If you suffer injuries as a result of slipping on a spilled drink you may be able to put in a claim for compensation. Some people have already been through this situation and have managed to claim with the help of a lawyer.
Are you in a position to claim compensation for this incident?
If you have been injured in this type of accident it is imperative that you get in touch with a professional injury compensation lawyer within the space of three years. They will be able to assess the situation you found yourself in and can see whether you have proof that negligence was to blame on the part of the venue or location concerned. Sometimes you may be offered compensation immediately by the venue, but in every case you should always seek legal advice before doing anything else.
