Compensation for a slip in a pub

On the weekend, or even in some cases on a week night, the pub is an area where most people like to spend their time if they are looking to relax with a few beers. Although the pub is a place where many people go for enjoyment, as private property it also does have the potential to be dangerous if the correct precautions are not taken.

As people become increasingly intoxicated, drinks and other liquids can be easily spilt on the floor and this can lead to potential hazards for other consumers. Liquids can become slippery and as a result a person who has not sighted the liquid could be the potential victim and receive an injury as a result. If this is you – then you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim.

What injuries could I sustain from a slip in a pub?

If you are the victim of a slip or fall in a pub then due to the often hard nature of the floor and the potential hazards around it – such as glass – you could suffer from a number of injuries, some of which have the potential to be serious. Some injuries that you could consider making a claim for include:

  • Head and neck injuries resulting from a fall or from hitting your head on an object
  • Broken or fractured limbs which could be injured during a fall
  • Cuts, abrasions and scars from glass injuries
  • Ankle and foot injuries.

Who can I claim against for a slip in a pub?

Depending on your circumstances, there are a number of people who you could claim against for a slip in a pub. If your injuries were caused through the direct negligence of another patron then you may be eligible to claim against them. Alternately, if your injuries were caused through the negligence of the pub owner who may have failed to clean up a spillage or draw attention to it, then your compensation claim could be directed at them.
