Broken glass is one of the biggest causes of accidents in pubs and bars. Whether due to violence, a mishap caused by human error, or poor maintenance, broken glass can cause a myriad of health and safety problems.
As well as accidents to the general public; bartenders, waiters, and waitresses can also experience accidents at work due to dealing with broken glass. Whatever your situation, if you are a victim of personal injury, caused by an accident in a public place, you may be entitled to personal injury compensation for the harm you have suffered.
The first steps to claiming compensation
Before you consider processing a claim for personal injury compensation, be sure that the incident in question occurred within the last three years.
Whether you suffered an accident while working behind a bar, or a slip on glassy wet floor due to a spilt drink, the variables of your case will need to be assessed to ensure that your case is eligible for compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline offers a 30-second test on their website that is able to indicate if your bar-related case is eligible for compensation. This compensation calculator will help you decide whether your claim is worth pursuing.
Supporting your claim
To have the best chance of your claim succeeding, it is important that you are able to support your claim by providing evidence.
This evidence should include photographs of the incident, including the broken glass, and photographs of the injury you incurred. Keep a record of medical attention you received for your bar-related injury, as well as any treatment you have received following the incident.
If there were any witnesses of your accident, be sure to note down their details including their name, address, and telephone number. Their help may be required later on in legal proceedings.
