Have you been hurt by security staff?
Due to increasing levels of violence in bars and clubs around the United Kingdom, many premises now employ bouncers and security staff to ensure the safety of their customers and their staff. Although some pubs have security staff on duty at all times, most premises simply opt to have them present on busier days, such as over the weekend or if there is a big sports match on.
Whilst security staff can help to ensure the safety of customers, sometimes they may inadvertently cause harm to someone. If, for example, they are rushing across the bar to deal with an incident, you may get knocked or hurt in the process.
Similarly, if they are ejecting someone from the premises and you get caught in the scuffle, you could find yourself suffering an injury. If you are hurt because of security staff, their employers may be held responsible for their actions and you could potentially make a compensation claim against them.
When can injury solicitors in Waltham Cross help me?
Although bouncers and security staff may sometimes need to use some force to calm situations down or remove people from the premises, this doesn’t mean that they can act outside of the law or that they can use excessive force. If you feel you have been treated unfairly and you’ve been hurt as a result, injury solicitors in Waltham Cross could help you to make a compensation claim.
In many instances, the people who end up getting hurt weren’t even involved in the original altercation so it could be relatively straightforward for you to make a compensation claim with help from personal injury solicitors in Waltham Cross.
As most bars and clubs now have CCTV installed both inside and outside the premises, it’s likely that the incident will be caught on tape. This can be extremely useful when it comes to providing who caused your injuries so you may want to ensure that your injury solicitors in Waltham Cross or lawyers have access to this piece of evidence.
