Since the introduction of the smoking ban back in 2007 and the rise in popularity of buying booze and drinking it at home, the pub industry has had an absolutely torrid old time of things. Pubs are closing left, right and centre, and a great many of those that manage to keep their doors open have seen their takings plummet. The few pubs that have managed to flourish in the current climate are typically those that have diversified.
Offering a family-friendly atmosphere and food are just two ways that some pubs have managed to buck the trend in their industry. Pubs with decent gardens will also typically do well in finer weather. However, these changes can bring with them the threat that a customer might be injured in an accident that was not their fault. If you’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault while you were visiting a pub and would like to take some form of action, you’re going to need to get some claims advice in Guildford.

Pubs with gardens will need to always make sure that all the garden furniture they provide for customers is safe. Imagine that you went down to your local boozer for a few drinks and a bite to eat with your family. You order some drinks at the bar, and then make your way out into the garden to peruse a menu and decide what you’re going to have to eat.
As you’re all getting seated at one of those pub garden tables that have integrated benches, one end of a seat breaks off, sending you flying to the ground with your drink still in your hand. On landing, you suffer some rather unpleasant injuries that require the immediate action of a medical professional. Under these circumstances, there will be a possibility that you might well have a claim for compensation on your hands.
