Injury solicitors in Ilchester
If you’re in a busy pub or bar late at night, surrounded by scores of people who are a little the worse for a few drinks, you shouldn’t be surprised if the odd beverage or two gets spilled on the floor. It’s almost inevitable. A large room full of inebriated people carrying glasses full to the brim with liquid is a recipe for disaster, or at least very wet floors.
It’s important to realise that it’s the responsibility of pub and bar owners to make sure any spillages that could cause slips or falls are mopped up immediately, in case somebody were to slip on them and do themselves a mischief. At the very least, an establishment’s management should make sure any potentially dangerous spillages are cordoned off with a wet floor sign. Failure to ensure that spillages are taken care of within a reasonable amount of time could leave bar or pub owners open to personal injury claims from people who have been injured and taken it upon themselves to retain the services of decent 100% no win no fee injury solicitors in Ilchester with a view to securing compensation.
Pub and bar spillages
If you did suffer an injury as a result of slipping on a puddle of liquid in a pub or bar, good injury solicitors in Ilchester may be able to win you a payout worth many thousands of pounds if it could be proved that the bar or pub owner had failed in their duty of keeping their patrons safe from being involved in an accident that was not their fault.
To make a successful claim, you’re going to need evidence. First and foremost, you’re going to need medical evidence that proves you suffered the injuries you said you did. It will be no good turning up to court claiming you fractured your elbow if you don’t have any medical evidence to support your claim. If you sought medical attention after suffering your slip, your injuries will all have been recorded by the medical professional you saw.
Your injury solicitors in Ilchester will also find it useful if you have photographic evidence of the aftermath of your accident and the contact details of people who saw what happened to you. If you have the contact details of people who would be willing to testify that no effort was made to clear up any spillages in the establishment you were in on the night in question, all the better.
