Pub Or Bar Accident Claims
What Is A Pub Or Bar Accident Claim?
Pubs and bars can be high risk locations, with the combination of lots of people and alcohol. Owners and managers need to take the risks to their staff and their customers very seriously, and to consider any hazards that might put people at risk. If they have not taken sufficient safety precautions and you are injured in a pub or bar accident as a result, you are entitled to compensation.

How Much Compensation Is Awarded For Pub Or Bar Accidents?
Compensation claims are highly variable and are designed to compensate you for the losses you personally have suffered. This means that it is incredibly difficult to give you an accurate estimate of the amount of compensation you can expect without knowing the specifics of your pub or bar accident. There are a few common factors in compensation claims, however.
Compensation claims are usually separated into two parts. The first part is easier to calculate. This is the part designed to compensate you for the pain and suffering you have experienced. Compensation amounts in this category are set nationally by the Judicial College and a range is given for expected payments for each individual type of injury. Whilst this can give a basic guide, the ranges can be very wide, to allow for the specific nature of each individual injury. Our experienced personal injury claims solicitors will be able to give you better guidance as to where in the range your injury is likely to fall.
The second, and often much larger, part of your compensation claim is to compensate you for any costs, expenses or losses associated with your pub or bar accident. The aim of compensation is to give you as close as possible to the same situation as you would have ad if your pub or bar accident had not occurred. This means that you are able to claim for any loss of earnings if you are unable to work as a result of your pub or bar accident, or even for the loss of the earnings you would have been likely to receive if your injuries mean that you are unable to return to your previous work. You may also be entitled to claim for additional medical support, the help of a carer if this has become necessary and even some modifications to your home or vehicle if they are necessary to allow you to resume the life you had previously.
Working with our dedicated team of personal injury claims solicitors means that you have the benefit of our years of experience, allowing us to claim for many expenses that you might not have realised could be included in your compensation claim. We want to get you the financial support you need to help get your life back on track.
Does It Take Long To Make A Pub Or Bar Accident Compensation Claim?
Pub or bar accident compensation claims can take different amounts of time to complete, with some taking much longer than others. We understand that you want to resolve your pub or bar accident as quickly as possible to give you the financial support that you need to put your pub or bar accident behind you.
Some cases can be settled very quickly indeed, with many taking just a couple of months and the very fastest needing only a few weeks. For cases to be resolved this quickly, they will usually be for more minor injuries and, therefore, smaller compensation amounts. If you are claiming a smaller amount of money, there is less incentive for the other side to reduce your claim through lengthy negotiations. Personal injury compensation claims that are resolved this quickly as also the ones where the other side accept liability almost immediately, removing the need for evidence gathering and offering proof, both of which take time.
If your case is more complicated, for example if there is more than one person or organisation responsible for your injury or if the other side refuses to accept that they were liable for what happened, your case may take much longer to be resolved. The cases that take longest to complete are those which cannot be settled out of court and which require a judge to make the final decision.
Can I Get No Win No Fee Help With My Pub Or Bar Accident Claim?
We believe that everyone is entitled to seek compensation following a pub or bar accident, and we don’t believe that a lack of funds should prevent you from getting the legal advice that you need. This is why we offer our services on a no win no fee basis to almost all of our clients.
A no win no fee agreement means that we are able to act as your solicitors without you having to pay any fees until you receive compensation. As the name suggests, if we are not able to get you the compensation you deserve, you won’t have to pay anything. This takes the risk out of making a pub or bar accident claim and ensures that justice is available to everyone. With a no win no fee agreement, our fees are set as a percentage of your compensation payment, meaning that you always know exactly how much you will receive before accepting an offer of a compensation settlement, and also ensuring that you will always receive the lion’s share of the payment.
Although we do our best to offer a no win no fee payment option to as many of our clients as possible, there are a few situations in which we are not able to do so. If this is the case for you, we will make sure that you understand that in advance, and will discuss other possible funding arrangements with you to ensure that you can afford the legal help you need.

It means that you are able to make your claim and try to get justice for your accident or injury without putting yourself or your financial stability at risk.
Do I Have A Time Limit For Making A Pub Or Bar Accident Compensation Claim?
All pub or bar accident compensation claims should be resolved within a time period of 2 years from the date at which the injury was sustained. In general, we recommend that clients begin their proceedings much earlier than this, as waiting can reduce the time available for negotiation. If you are approaching the deadline, or if you would like further guidance, contact our personal injury solicitors today.
In a few cases, there might be an advantage to waiting before making your compensation claim following your accident. This is usually the case when it is not clear that you have had all of the symptoms that you will experience or when it is not certain how complete your recovery might be. Talking with our personal injury specialists should still be your first priority, however, as we can then give you the legal advice you need to make the best decisions for you.
How Do Pub Or Bar Accident Compensation Claims Work?
Making a pub or bar accident compensation claim for any accident or injury you may have sustained follows the same basic process.
You will want to make sure that you have access to the correct legal advice and assistance. Our specialised personal injury claims solicitors are able to provide you with all of the help and support you may need and are available 24/7. Call us or claim online to discuss your accident and to begin your pub or bar accident claim.
The first thing we, as your solicitors, need to do is notify the other person that you are making a pub or bar accident compensation claim against them. We ask them to accept that they were at fault and we give them a deadline by which they must respond.
If the other side tells us that they do not accept liability (this is known as them disputing liability), we will put together a file of evidence to support your claim. This will include any evidence you have found, as well as anything we gather. It can include a visual record of the event, if one exists, witness statements and expert testimony as to accepted safety guidelines for your industry. Once presented with this information, almost all employers will accept liability.
When the other side have agreed that they are liable for your personal injury compensation claim, we will then begin to negotiate the settlement (this is how much money you will be given). We will make sure that you know about every offer that is made, and also whether we believe that it is a fair offer or not. The decision as to whether or not to accept an offer of compensation will always be yours, but we will help you and give you the information you need to be confident in your decision.
It is almost always possible to reach agreement for compensation, especially with accidents that took place at work. If we are unable to convince the other party to accept liability, or if it is impossible to agree on compensation, your case may have to go to court to have a judge decide how much should be paid.

What Do I Need To Know To Make A Pub Or Bar Accident Claim?
If you have suffered a pub or bar accident, you may not be sure whether you are able to claim compensation or not. Many of our clients tell us that they wondered the same thing. The requirements for making a pub or bar accident compensation claim are very simple and most people are eligible.
You are only able to make a compensation claim for things that you have actually suffered. You are only able to make a pub or bar accident compensation claim if you have experienced a pub or bar accident, not if you suffered a near miss. Similarly, you are only able to make a claim for the damage you have actually sustained, not the damage that you could have suffered, or for injuries that you narrowly avoided.
In order to make a compensation claim, you must also be able to demonstrate that there was someone else who was at fault in your pub or bar accident. They do not have to have caused the pub or bar accident directly, and they don’t even need to have been present. The important thing is that they had a responsibility to make sure that you were safe. In the workplace, your employer has this legal duty of care, meaning that almost all accidents at work fulfil this criteria.
The other person must also have been able to foresee or anticipate what has happened to you. This doesn’t mean that they must have actually known that it would happen, but that they could have considered it, if they had put sufficient thought and care into health and safety concerns.
The final consideration is what measures were taken to protect you. If no protective measures were put in place, your claim is highly likely to be successful. If they did take some steps to keep you safe, you may still be able to claim if these were not sufficient, given the degree of risk.

How To Respond Following A Pub Or Bar Accident
In the immediate aftermath of your pub or bar accident, it is important that you prioritise making sure that you are safe and getting the first aid and medical attention that you need.

The simplest thing you can do to help your pub or bar accident compensation claim would be to write down everything you can remember from the time surrounding your pub or bar accident. This can include anything that happened prior to it but that might be relevant as well as details of the aftermath. The more details that you can write down now, the easier it will be for you to remember all of the important information if your case has to go to court.
It can also be valuable to make sure that you have the names and contact information of anyone who may have witnessed your pub or bar accident.

You may wish to ask them to write down everything that they remember of the circumstances surrounding your pub or bar accident, but we are happy to deal with this for you if you prefer.
Photographs or videos of the place where your pub or bar accident happened can also be very helpful, especially if you are able to highlight anything that made the area unsafe and made your pub or bar accident more likely.
