With so many people under one roof having a good time at a nightclub, it’s perhaps inevitable that accidents can and do happen. But some nightclub accidents could be avoided if staff pay attention to health and safety. If you’ve slipped on a nightclub floor, you could sustain serious injuries which might need treatment in hospital. But how do these types of accidents happen, and what can you do if this has happened to you or somebody you love?
How do nightclub slips and trips happen?
Wet floors are the leading cause of slips in nightclubs, and if you’ve slipped on a nightclub floor, you could be seriously injured. It could be that a wet floor caused by spilt drinks has led to your accident – it’s up to staff to ensure spillages are cleaned up promptly, to minimise risk to the public. If people have dropped their drinks, there could also be broken glass on the floor which could lead to lacerations, if you slip and fall. Other causes of wet floors that are slippery could be a leaking roof, window which has been left open or even a floor which has been recently cleaned.
Whatever has happened, if you have been injured after you’ve slipped in a nightclub, you could make a claim against the nightclub owner, and they could be held liable for your injuries. Injuries could range from strains and sprains to serious head injuries, and if you’ve been injured and feel somebody else is to blame for your accident, you could make a personal injury claim within three years of your accident.
