Do you need to make a no win no fee Paisley compensation claim after being injured whilst working at a pub?
If you work in a pub or a restaurant, it’s likely that you spend a significant amount of time serving customers. If you work behind the bar or as a waiter or waitress, you will be required to have a lot of interaction with customers. Although working in a pub or bar isn’t considered to be a particularly dangerous job, there is a chance that you could sustain an injury at work.
Unfortunately, many injuries tend to occur if there is broken glass in the workplace. Whilst it isn’t uncommon for someone to break a glass in a pub or restaurant, it can cause someone to suffer a cut. If, for example, you attempt to pick up a broken glass, you could easily sustain cuts to your hand. Similarly, if a glass was to shatter whilst you were holding it, you could suffer from lacerations.
Providing the cut isn’t too deep and doesn’t sever an artery, it shouldn’t cause too much permanent damage. However, you may require stitches in order to stop the bleeding. In addition to this, you may need medical treatment to ensure that there is no glass left in the wound as this could cause infection.
Of course, this isn’t the only type of injury which can occur in a pub environment. As with any workplace environment, you could simply fall or slip whilst at work or you could be injured whilst using the machinery. If, for example, you needed to change a barrel in order for the beer pumps to work and the barrels weren’t stacked correctly, they could fall on you and cause a very serious injury.
If you have been hurt whilst working in a pub and it wasn’t your fault, it may be possible for you to make a no win no fee Paisley compensation claim. Although many people do work in this environment, a significant number of people do so on a part time basis. However, this needn’t prevent you from making a no win no fee Paisley claim if you are eligible to do so.
