Nightclub Accident Claim *
People go out to a nightclub to enjoy themselves and have a bit of time off from the pressures of life. The last thing a person expects when entering a nightclub is to suffer an injury * of a serious nature. Deemed to be an accident in a public place *, when a person sustains an injury in a nightclub * due to the negligence of the management team they may be entitled to seek a legal remedy for the error.
Due to the noisy and dark environment of a nightclub, eyewitness accounts can be difficult to rely on for the claims process as they may have been influenced by alcohol consumption. Portraying a lack of care on the nightclubs behalf can be difficult for this reason. Nightclub management will often genuinely be sympathetic towards your injury and attempt to rectify the situation by some means. However, there are circumstances where nightclub management will refuse to take liability for the injury suffered.
If you have suffered a nightclub injury * due to the negligence of the premises management it is advisable that you consult with a solicitor as you may be entitled to seek a legal remedy. If you are considering taking legal action Tracey Solicitors can provide you with expert legal advice and guidance with your best interest at heart, in a language that you can understand.
What are the responsibilities of a nightclub owner?
The Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957 states that an occupier of a property has a duty of care to all their visitors to ensure that they are safe in using the premises. Nightclub management staff have an obligation to ensure that the public is not exposed to any unnecessary risks. It is necessary for nightclubs to take it upon themselves to carry out risk assessments throughout the duration of the night to minimise and eliminate the chance of injuries.
Common types of injuries
If a person suffers a personal injury * due to the negligence of the nightclub management ignoring an avoidable risk you may be able to seek a legal remedy for the error. Some of the most common causes of nightclub accident claims * are:
- Management failed to roster enough staff to clean up broken glass and drink spills.
