Although going out to a restaurant or an eatery is a popular pastime, many people also enjoy going out for drinks or to a bar or nightclub. Although most smaller rural areas don’t have bars or nightclubs nearby, they do have towns or cities nearby which cater for those wanting to have a night out.
Depending on the type of venue you go to, you may find that the music is fairly loud and that the venue isn’t lit very well. In many clubs and bars, the area will be lit by stage lights rather than ceiling lights which may mean that you find it difficult to acclimatise to the darkness at first.
In addition to this, many clubs and bars can get very busy, particularly if you go on a Friday or Saturday night. Whilst most people frequent their local bars and clubs without any problems, from time to time a Fenland accident may occur and you could be hurt as a result.
As it can be difficult for staff to keep track of what’s going on during busier nights, they may be unaware of things such as broken glasses or discarded drinks. Although it may be easy to clear these up on quieter nights, when a venue is overcrowded or noisy, staff may not realise that half-empty drinks and discarded glasses could pose a threat to safety.
If, for example, you were to slip on a spilt drink, you could then cut yourself on the broken or discarded glass. While this may only lead to a minor injury, in some cases, you could suffer severe cuts or lacerations, and you may even need stitches to stem the blood flow.
Entitled to compensation?
If you are hurt, or you suffer a Fenland accident while you’re out in the evening, it may be possible for you to obtain compensation for the harm that you’ve suffered. For example, if the venue is held responsible for the Fenland accident, they may also be forced to pay you compensation, and you could receive a substantial amount.
What’s even better is that you won’t have to risk spending expensive sums of money to make a claim! Rather than paying upfront legal fees to personal injury law firms, you could make a no-win, no-fee claim with Accident Advice Helpline instead.
