Bar, Pub and Nightclub Accident Claims

Accidents in bars, pubs and nightclubs are common occurrences and sometimes lead to considerable injuries. If you can prove the injury was not your fault, the premises posed a hazardous risk, or that there was no initial warning of any danger, then you could be entitled to pursue legal action.

We can assess your case and advise you on the appropriate action to take if we believe you have a valid claim. Call us today on 0800 10 757 95, or fill in an online enquiry form.

Common nightclub accidents

The high risk of hazards in this environment means there are a variety of different common causes of accidents, including:

  • Slips, trips and falls – drink spillages and broken glass on the floor can result in an accident, with many turning out to be serious injuries.
  • Excessively loud music – managers must ensure their sound levels are kept to a safe volume and provide all staff with hearing protection. If these safety procedures are not in place, prolonged exposure to loud music can lead to tinnitus and hearing loss.
  • Poor lighting – a lack of lighting in bars, pubs and clubs makes it difficult to see at the best of times. Managers are obliged to ensure the premises are lit well enough for people to make their way around safely. There is also the risk of poor lighting or electrical faults.
  • Stairways – stairways must be kept clear and well lit within clubs, pubs and bars. Failure to keep stairways safe can result in a potentially serious or even fatal injury.

As with all venues, the landlord who owns the pub, bar or nightclub has a duty of care to ensure all interior and exterior areas, such as car parks and beer gardens, are well maintained. This means they are obligated to do everything possible to keep patrons and workers safe from harm. However, sometimes even they can fail to spot something that should have been noticed, and that is when you could potentially have the right to claim.
