Are you claiming compensation in Weymouth and Portland after an injury in a bar?
When people go out to a bar or a nightclub, they generally hope to have a relaxing and enjoyable evening. Despite everyone’s good intentions, things don’t always go to plan. Although things may start off well, when numerous people consume alcohol in a relatively small space, things can sometimes get a little heated.
Unfortunately, it can be easy for people to consume a little too much alcohol or have one drink too many. Whilst many people cope with this well, people can sometimes get a little out of hand and tempers can fray. If pubs and clubs don’t have security staff, or the staff aren’t aware of something escalating, they may be unable to step in and prevent an incident from occurring.
If you are out in this environment and you see an argument occur, you may want to inform security or bar staff as soon as possible. By alerting them to a potential problem, they can ensure that a physical altercation doesn’t break out and that people don’t suffer injuries.
Unfortunately, if an incident does take place, it is often innocent people who are hurt. As it is often dim or dark in these places and as they are often well populated, it can be difficult for people to leave immediately if a problem does occur. If two people do become involved in a physical altercation, it is often those around them that can get hurt.
In order to try and limit the number of injuries which occur, many pubs and clubs now only serve drinks in plastic glasses. As glass can easily break or shatter and can even be used as a weapon, switching to plastic cups and bottles does seem like a safer option.Open Claim Calculator
