Need good injury lawyers in Temple Meads for an unexpected accident? If you’ve ever noticed the metal hatches that lead to pub cellars that can sometimes be found on pavements, you may have thought to yourself how unpleasant it would be to fall through one, if it was not closed properly or became damaged. It would be likely that there would be little to break your fall, meaning you would tumble through the hatch and land on what would probably be a hard concrete floor, perhaps knocking yourself against a rudimentary staircase on your way.
If this were to happen at night, you could find yourself trapped until morning if your fall resulted in you sustaining injuries that made it too hard for you to clamber out of your new surroundings.
Nasty as such an experience would be, you may find some comfort in the fact that you might be able to use the services of good injury lawyers in Temple Meads to sue either the landlord of the pub concerned or the brewery that owns it. Depending on the severity of your injuries, this could bring you in many thousands of pounds.
Pub cellar accidents
Pub landlords or breweries that own pubs have a legal responsibility to make sure that their premises represent no health and safety risks to the public. This goes just as much for people walking outside of their premises, as it does for customers enjoying a cheeky beer, wine or spirit with mixer inside.
If they fail to do so, they could face legal action from anybody who got hurt as a result of their negligence if an injured party decided to use injury lawyers in Temple Meads to seek damages for their pain and suffering.
