The pub trade has been dying for some time now, with many boozers shutting down across the country every month. The smoking ban and cheap supermarket alcohol have been largely responsible for the decline in the fortunes of public houses, as people eschew their local in favour of having a few drinks at home. Pubs that have survived and flourished have sought to replace revenue lost from people knocking back the pints with profits made from serving food. This means that many pubs these days are full of families as opposed to tipsy young people.
Accordingly, pubs now have to consider the health and safety of children who are patrons of their premises. If they do not, a child could be injured in an accident that was not their fault, leaving a boozer with the liability of a large compensation pay-out. If one of your children has been injured in an accident that was not their fault while visiting a pub, you would be well advised to speak with a top 100% no win no fee solicitor to get some advice on personal injury claims in Taunton Deane.
