Claim for Falling on Uneven Carpet in Starbucks

I recently broke my ankle after tripping over a crumpled-up carpet, how can I make a claim for falling on an uneven carpet in Starbucks?

Before initiating a claim for falling on an uneven carpet in Starbucks it must be determined that you suffered an injury for which you are not entirely to blame. This is possible if Starbucks have been negligent in their duty of care, resulting in you sustaining an injury for tripping on an uneven carpet in Starbucks. As a customer, you should not expect to sustain an injury when visiting the premises of Starbucks. If — for example — the carpet was uneven for an unacceptable period of time, the staff at Starbucks should have recognised the tripping hazard it posed and taken measures to correct this, and if such measures were not taken you may be entitled to claim compensation for falling on an uneven carpet in Starbucks. In order to determine your eligibility and to guide you through the procedure for tripping on an uneven Starbucks carpet, you are advised to consult a personal injury solicitor at the earliest opportunity.

Before pursuing a claim for falling on an uneven carpet in Starbucks, medical attention should be sought for your injuries immediately after your accident. This should not only be done to prevent the deterioration of your injury for tripping on uneven carpet in Starbucks but also to create a record of your injury in your medical history, which is essential before seeking compensation. Acquiring medical attention will also prevent allegations of contributory negligence from damaging your claim to compensation for falling on an uneven carpet in Starbucks, as if it is determined that your injuries deteriorated because of failure to have your injuries professionally treated, your compensation can be reduced to reflect your own negligence.

Your claim for falling on an uneven carpet in Starbucks can then proceed once medical attention has been sought. The procedure for tripping on an uneven Starbucks carpet can begin with making a report of your accident into Starbucks’ Accident Report Book, which will detail the circumstances surrounding your accident. This can later be used as evidence to support your claim. You should then consult a personal injury solicitor who can assess your claim for injury for tripping on an uneven carpet in Starbucks, determine which party is liable for your injury and assist in gathering evidence. This evidence can include CCTV footage, eyewitness testimony and your medical records, all of which can assist in claiming compensation for falling on an uneven carpet in Starbucks.

The procedure for tripping on an uneven Starbucks carpet will continue when sufficient evidence to support your claim has been gathered, and your solicitor sends a letter of claim to Starbucks’ insurance company to state your intention to seek compensation. Three weeks are given for the insurance company to respond to this letter, after which three months are provided to the insurance company in order to conduct their own investigation and accept or deny liability for your injury for tripping on an uneven carpet in Starbucks. If accepted, your compensation for falling on an uneven carpet in Starbucks can be negotiated. If denied, court action may be required to settle your claim, although an out-of-court agreement is still possible at this stage. As can be seen, the process for making a claim can become complicated, and in order to maximise the likelihood that your claim for falling on an uneven carpet in Starbucks will be successful, you are advised to consult a personal injury solicitor at the earliest opportunity.
