We all love going out for dinner, whether that’s for a romantic meal with our partners, a catch-up with friends or to celebrate a special occasion with family. We’re usually so focused on having a good time and choosing what we’d like to eat from the menu, that personal safety is the last thing on our minds. But as anybody who has slipped on a restaurant floor knows, accidents can and do happen at restaurants and bars across the country.
What caused your accident?
There are a number of things which could have caused your accident. If you’ve slipped on a restaurant floor, it could be that the floor was being cleaned and no warning signs were displayed at the time. Perhaps a customer has spilt food or drink on the floor and staff have failed to clean it up, or one of the waiters has spilt food or drink whilst serving customers. It could even be caused by water from customer’s shoes or umbrellas in rainy or snowy weather, which has made the floor slippery.
Whatever has happened, the restaurant owner could be held liable for your injuries if they have failed to keep you safe. Whether you’ve suffered minor injuries such as cuts and bruises or a sprained ankle, or a more serious back or head injury, you could find you’re eligible to make a personal injury claim with Accident Advice Helpline. But don’t forget that there’s a three-year time limit in place for all personal injury claims, so you’ll need to act fast if you want to find out more.
