Night clubs, discos and pubs are designed to give customers a sense of atmosphere. This usually means low lighting, crowded tables and perhaps special effects such as strobe lights, fog machines or bubble makers. Such conditions, however, can limit your visibility and awareness to possible obstacles that may cause serious injury.
All pub and club owners have the legal responsibility to safeguard visitors from injuring themselves. This includes enforcing rules prohibiting drinks on the dance floor, displaying signs about wet floors or unsanitary toilets, properly lighting stairways, repairing old furniture and regularly inspecting the premises for possible dangers. If they do not do these things and you are injured, Graham Coffey & Co can assist you in making a claim for personal injury caused by:
- Slip-and-fall accidents caused by spilled drinks
- Falling on broken glass
- Tripping over discarded bottles or glasses
- Slipping on a wet dance floor
- Falling down a poorly lit staircase
- Cutting your mouth on old chipped glasses
- Falling off broken or collapsing furniture
- Uncooked or contaminated food
- Excessive force used by doormen
- Drunken assaults or criminal injury assaults
- Slipping on detergent spilt by a bubble or foam machine
Criminal assaults are common in pubs and clubs, often due to the combination of alcohol and a diverse clientele. If you were assaulted at a club, you may be entitled to pursue a claim for criminal injuries compensation. Our Manchester solicitors handling pub and club injuries will guide you through the criminal injuries application process to obtain compensation for your medical treatment and the pain you have endured.*
