Accidents can occur anywhere and at anytime and pubs are not exceptions to this. When we are relaxing and enjoying the company of friends, an accident is often the last thing on our minds. However, if you have been injured in a pub environment, you may be wondering who is liable for an accident in a pub? Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have a wealth of knowledge and expertise to enable liability to be established quickly.
Who is liable for an accident in a pub?
Liability for an accident rests with the person who is responsible for maintaining the safety of the environment in which it occurred. This may be the owner of the pub or the person who manages it on their behalf.
If you have been injured in a pub within the last 3 years, through no fault of your own, and you sought medical attention at the time of the accident, then the law states that you are entitled to claim personal injury compensation from the person responsible for the accident occurring.
Common types of accidents in pubs where the owner is liable for injuries sustained can include:
- Slips, trips and falls on uneven, loose, wet or slippery floors where spilt drinks were not cleaned up promptly
- Cuts from broken bottles or glasses
