Accident in a bar – how to claim?

Start your claim

Here at Belmont Solicitors, we understand that being involved in an accident in a bar can be an extremely traumatising and stressful experience for anyone. After being involved in an accident in a bar, you may experience severe or minor injuries; no matter the case, our solicitors will ensure that you get the highest possible compensation you deserve.

If you have been involved in an accident in a bar and suffered injuries or damage due to no fault of your own; we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced solicitors at Belmont solicitors to get the compensation you deserve.  

Types of bar accidents and their causes 

As a visitor of the premises, the occupier of the land has a duty of care to ensure your safety. If they fail to keep you safe and you are involved in an accident, you are eligible to claim compensation for your damages. The occupier of the premises can be the owner, manager or the person who was held responsible for the safety of the premises.

They must carry out regular health and safety checks of the premises, carry out regular machinery maintenance checks, identify hazards and take care of them at the best possible time. If the occupier of the premises is made aware of any hazards, they must resolve the issue in a good time. For hazards such as slippery surfaces, they should display signs to inform the visitors. The most common causes of bar accidents include: 

  • Slips, trips and falls. 
  • Cuts from broken glass 
  • Physical injuries from customers or staff
  • Accidents caused by lack of maintenance 
  • Food poisoning

The most common causes of accidents in bars include:

  • Lack of signage of hazards 
  • Failing to clean up spilt liquids 
  • Failing to maintain furniture and machinery 
  • Failing to comply with health and safety standards in the bar or kitchen 

If you were in an accident due to no fault of your own, we highly advise that you contact one of our experienced Personal Injury solicitors at Belmont Solicitors. 

How to claim?

After being involved in an accident in a public place the first thing you should do is ensure that everyone is safe, and call any emergency services if necessary. After that, make sure to gather as much evidence as possible, these include:

  • Pictures and videos of the scene of the accident 
  • Record your injuries 
  • Gather medical records from a medical practitioner 
  • Gather CCTV footage 
  • Gather witness reports

    • My accident happened right before covid, so there were loads of delays and even a hand over in solicitors. With all the interferences, Belmont never let me down. They stayed in touch and stayed very honest throughout the whole thing.

They have been excellent throughout making sure I am aware of everything that’s been going on and providing me with all the information I need to make informed decisions. The outcome has been fantastic and I have been treated with integrity and care throughout. I would highly recommend them to anybody.

    • The team at Belmont has been great. They went through the information with me as often as I needed to understand all the legal bits and feel comfortable proceeding. I was given an update as soon as it was available, which meant I didn’t have to constantly call - which in my experience is not always the case with solicitors. Overall very happy with the service received.

    • Good service. Kept me informed about my personal injury claim - which took about a year to settle, which was due to the other party in the accident's insurer going into liquidation, but they kept at it and eventually succeded in getting the payment. Would definately recommend.
