Have you suffered an Islington accident whilst in a restaurant?
Following extensive redevelopment in the area, Islington is now considered to be a trendy and up-and-coming part of London. With plenty of restaurants, eateries and bars situated in the area, there is plenty for local residents and visitors to do whilst they are in Islington.
However, as with restaurants in any area, there is the potential that something could go wrong or that an Islington accident could occur whilst you’re out. As many restaurants have dim lighting, it can be difficult to navigate your way around the premises, particularly if you’ve never been there before.
If the floor is uneven or the laminate if torn, you may be unable to see the potential danger and you could fall or suffer an Islington accident as a result. In such instances, you may not actually be responsible for the Islington accident and the restaurant owners or managers could be held responsible.
Similarly, if a server was to drop something, such as a drink or plate, and you suffered cuts due to the broken glass or china, you could potentially go on to make a claim against the restaurant.
When an Islington accident occurs in a restaurant environment, it may put you off going back but there are often one-off incidents. However, if you happen to become ill after eating out, you may not want to return to the premises at all. If you were to become seriously ill and to suffer with something such as food poisoning after eating out, you may even want to make a compensation claim against the restaurant. Providing you can show that they caused the illness, you could obtain compensation from them in the same way as claiming for an Islington accident.
