Can you sue a pub? 

If you have been injured in a pub, you may be wondering ‘can you sue a pub?’, ‘do pubs have a duty of care?’, and how to sue a pub. Simply put, pubs and bars do owe their customers a duty of care. This comes under the Occupiers' Liability Act 1957 which protects any customers and visitors to a business premises. 
If a pub or bar was to act negligently and break this duty of care, and you suffer injury as a result, you can sue the pub and claim financial compensation through a personal injury claim. To do so, you will need the help of a specialist personal injury solicitor, such as MG Legal. For a free, no-obligation discussion of your potential claim, contact us today here.

What can be claimed for in a pub injury claim? 

When you make a pub injury claim, it can be broken down into two parts, general damages and special damages. The general damages of your claim cover the pain and suffering associated with the injury, while the special damages cover any potential financial losses that you may have suffered because of your accident. 
These special damages may include: 
Lost earnings because of an injury in a pub 
Potential lost earnings after a pub accident 
Medical costs after an injury in a pub 
Travel expenses because of a pub accident

A pub injury claim case study with MG Legal: 

Our pub injury solicitors recently settled a pub injury claim for an injured client, and obtained £13,000 of compensation for him. Our client, Mr C, was injured in a fall in a pub, resulting in a fractured arm and some associated scarring. 
After accepting Mr C’s NO WIN NO FEE claim, our pub injury solicitors got to work on building his pub injury claim to be as strong as possible. Our clients’ designated solicitor got in touch with specialist medical professionals in order to obtain multiple specialist medical reports on Mr C’s injuries. As well as these  
medical reports, Mr C’s solicitor went above and beyond to gather all legal evidence relating to his personal injury claim before pursuing it, in order to achieve the maximum compensation possible for his claim. As a part of this, we were able to establish a number of ways in which the pub acted negligently, including exposing their customers to danger and injury, and breaching the Occupiers Liabilities Act of 1957. 
After compiling all of this evidence into a strong and robust claim, MG Legal filed the pub injury claim for financial compensation on behalf of Mr C, and were able to quickly obtain an admission of liability from the pub involved. When this liability was admitted, we were able to achieve a sum of £13,000 in financial compensation for our clients’ claim, which allowed him to recover all of his lost earnings, as well as providing him with the compensation to get on with rebuilding his life after his injuries. 

What to do if you have been injured in a pub accident: 

If you have been injured in a pub accident that could lead to a potential pub injury claim, it is a good idea to take action right away, and follow our personal injury solicitors’ simple steps in order to ensure that you are eligible to make a strong pub injury claim. 
After being injured in a pub accident, take the following steps for your pub injury claim: 
Seek medical attention for any injuries- When you become aware of your injuries from a pub accident, make sure to visit your local doctor, or A&E department if the injuries are serious enough to require medical attention. This is important in ensuring that you get the care you need, and also in order to obtain a professional medical record of your injuries, which will hugely aid in any subsequent pub injury claim that is made for the pub accident. 
Make a formal complaint to the pub about the accident- after any pub accident, you should always make a formal complaint with the pub itself. Make sure to also get a copy of this complaint, and accident report. 
Take photographs of your injuries- another piece of key evidence for any pub injury claim, is photographic evidence of the injuries from your pub accident. As time goes on, and as you move through the pub injury claims process, your injuries could change and become less severe. It is important to obtain photographs of the injuries as they were at their worst, and how they changed over time after the pub accident. 
Contact a specialist no win no fee solicitor as soon as possible- Pub injury claims need the work of a specialist solicitor. MG Legal’s pub injury solicitors are experts in pub injury claims, and accept all of our pub injury claims on a no win no fee basis. Simply get in touch with our specialist solicitors, here, for a no-obligation discussion of your potential pub injury claim. 

How much is my pub injury claim worth? 

When you make any pub injury claim the amount of compensation that you might receive will vary based on the circumstances of the pub accident and the injuries that you obtained. As stated above, your pub injury claim will be broken down into special and general damages. The special damages of your claim will cover any financial losses caused by your pub injuries, such as lost earnings or medication costs. This often makes up the large majority of the claim value, and is calculated on a purely individual basis. 
The general damages will cover the injury side of your claim alone, and is calculated based on the type of injuries you have sustained and the severity of them. Our pub injury solicitors have put together the table below using the relevant guidelines to estimate the general damages available for different pub injuries.

Who is a pub injury claim made against? 

Many of our clients who are looking to make pub injury claims come to us unaware of who is responsible for the pub accident that caused them to become injured. Generally speaking, it is the landlord who owns a pub or bar who is responsible for ensuring safe working conditions for employees in the pub, and to ensure the safety and protection of the pub’s customers. 
If a pub landlord fails to safely upkeep the interior of the pub, such as the bar and the toilet facilities, or the exterior of the pub, such as the car park and beer garden, then they could be liable for a pub injury claim to be made against them. To learn more about who is liable for your pub injury claim, or if a landlord has broken their duty of care to you in the pub accident that has caused you injury, do not hesitate to get in touch with our no win no fee pub injury solicitors online here and speak to a specialist no win no fee solicitor on a free, no-obligation basis within one working hour. 
Who a pub injury claim will be made against depends on the circumstances of the accident and who was at fault. Pub injury claims can be made against the following people: 
The owner of the pub- where it is an act of negligence on the pub owner, such as an untreated hazard 
The company responsible for the pub- where the pub is a chain or there are multiple venues, the head company could be responsible for negligent health and safety measures or defective products 
Another customer- where a violent criminal assault takes place in a pub, such as a fight in a pub, you could make a criminal injury claim against the other personal 

Common pub injury claims: 

With so much going on in a pub or in a nightclub, there are a number of examples of negligence that can lead to pub injury claims for financial compensation. Some of the common acts of negligence leading to pub injury claims include: 
Inadequate staff training in a pub or bar 
Understaffing leading to unsafe working conditions 
Badly maintained flooring and furnishings causing slip, trips or falls 
Lack of crowd control or controlling entry numbers 
Lack of security to ensure the safety of customers 
Failure to fulfil duty of care to customers 
Misreporting of accidents and criminal activity going on in the pub 
Over-serving customers obviously under the influence of alcohol 
Lack of appropriate signage to highlight hazards or explain working practices or safety announcements

Broken glass pub injury claim: 

With the amount of glasses and plates that are used in pubs, and carried around by waiting staff, it is not uncommon for objects to be dropped and smashed in a pub. However, when this happens, the pub or venue has a responsibility to deal with the hazard in due time, and protect their customers from injury. 
This comes under the Occupiers' Liability Act 1957, which is in place to protect customers visiting a business or venue. If you have cut yourself on broken glass in a pub, or been injured because of a broken plate in a pub, you could be eligible to make a pub injury claim with our personal injury solicitors. For more information on making a broken glass pub injury claim, and how our team can help, get in touch with MG Legal today, here. 

Slip, trip or fall claim in a pub or bar: 

Pubs are often busy places, with large numbers of people crowded into a small space with furniture and chairs everywhere. When this happens, it can be difficult for people to see potential slip, trip, and fall hazards in the pub. 
Some of the most common slip, trip and fall pub injury claims include: 
Spillages that are not properly dealt with by staff 
Uncovered wires blocking walkways 
Inadequate lighting of walkways leading to injuries 
Falls due to excessive crowding and improper crowd management 
Faulty chairs, tables, or other equipment 
Broken tiles or ill-fitted carpet 

Accident at work in a pub: 

When people think of pub injury claims, and accidents occurring in a pub, it is easy to focus only on the customer as the victim, and with the rights to make a pub injury claim. However, this is not the case. Pub accidents and pub injuries can often occur to employees working in a pub, and they too are legally owed a duty of care by the pub to be protected from injury
Whether you work behind the bar, as a waiter, or in a pub kitchen, you could make an accident at work claim for any injury sustained while working in a pub. Through this claim, you can obtain financial compensation with the help of a specialist accident at work solicitor. 
For a full overview of accident at work claims for injuries to waiting staff and kitchen staff, see this here. Or, for more information about your specific potential accident at work claim, contact our pub injury solicitors here.

Criminal injury claim in a pub or bar: 

It is no secret that fights and physical altercations in pubs are a regular occurrence, and many people may see it as part and parcel of spending a night in the pub. Still, being under the influence of alcohol and in a pub or bar environment is not an excuse to physically assault others, and doing so could lead to a criminal injury claim. If you have suffered injuries of any kind during a physical altercation in a pub that was not your fault, you could be entitled to make a criminal injury claim with our pub injury solicitors. 
This is done through the CICA claims process, and MG Legal’s specialist criminal injury solicitors are experts in these types of claims. For more information on the CICA claims process, see this here.

Food poisoning claim from eating in a pub: 

Pubs often offer cheap food to their customers to accompany their drinks. With these meals often being ordered in bulk pre-prepared and simply heated by the pub staff, there is often instances of improper stock rotation, or improper food heating, leading to food poisoning and unsafe food being served in a pub to customers. 
If this happens, and the customer happens to suffer from food poisoning as a result, they can make a food poisoning claim against the pub for financial compensation. For more information on how food poisoning claims work, and how our team of food poisoning injury solicitors can help, see this here. 

Pub injury statistics: 

Working in the pub and food industry can be dangerous, and there are a huge number of risks and hazards involved. According to the Health and Safety Executive, pubs and bars have 4x the amount of slip, trips and falls as other industries, with these accounting for around 90% of injuries to either customers or employees in pubs and bars. 
Data from the Home Office also shows that around 2% of people visiting pubs are involved in physical assault of some kind, and a staggering 87,000 injuries are caused by criminal assaults involving glass each year. 
The pub should be a safe place for people to enjoy their free time and relax, and there should be no risk of injury involved in a visit to the pub. However, these statistics show a worrying number of accidents and injuries occurring in pubs and bars. If you have been injured in a pub or bar accident that was not your fault, simply contact our specialist pub injury solicitors today, here.
