When you go to any type of event that needs to employ bouncers or stewards to make sure that things run smoothly, you should remember that these people are there to ensure your safety. They might need to haul you over the barrier at the front of a stage if the crowd behind you are becoming too boisterous, or assist you if you had indulged a little too enthusiastically in the refreshments available on site. These people will typically be very well trained indeed and will only usually have your best interests at heart.
However, as with all walks of life, you do get some bad apples. If you’ve suffered the terrible misfortune of being injured in an accident that was not your fault, and it was caused by a bouncer or a steward at this type of event, you would do very well indeed to explore your personal injury options if this came about through negligence. A great place to start will be putting a call in to Accident Advice Helpline for some free advice on personal injury claims in Bridgend.
Bouncers, stewards and advice on personal injury claims in Bridgend
In some circumstances, bouncers and stewards can have little sympathy for people who might have taken one too many drinks. While they will be within their rights to have a few stern words with you, if they have to help you out on account of the fact you were a little the worse for wear, they will not be able to treat you in a rough manner. If they did, you might be able to take action against the company they were working for, if you were injured.
If your friends had filmed a bouncer or steward mistreating you after you had had a few drinks at a festival or similar event, you might well be able to use this footage to prove how you were injured if you were to take your case to a personal injury tribunal.
