Slipped in a Cafe Rouge Toilet

Can I make a claim if I slipped in a Cafe Rouge toilet, as when I visited the doctor a week later I was diagnosed with a fractured ankle?

You may be entitled to make a claim to compensation if you slipped in a Cafe Rouge toilet — however the compensation to which you may be entitled can be reduced if your injuries deteriorated due to your failure to seek immediate medical attention. Cafe Rouge has a duty of care to fulfil to their customers, meaning that a claim after slipping in a toilet of Cafe Rouge may be possible if their negligence can be determined. However this duty of care is not absolute, and for this reason your compensation for slipping in a Cafe Rouge toilet can be reduced if it is considered that you failed to take measures to limit the extent of your accident or injury. In order to determine your eligibility for claiming after a slipping accident in a Cafe Rouge toilet, you are advised to consult a solicitor at the earliest opportunity.

If you have slipped in a Cafe Rouge toilet, you may be entitled to claim compensation if you have been the victim of negligence, resulting in a preventable accident. This may be the situation if — for example — a spillage had been present on the bathroom floor for an unacceptable length of time, resulting in your slipping accident in a Cafe Rouge toilet. Under their duty of care, this spillage should have been cleared up at the earliest opportunity, and for this reason you could be entitled to make a claim after slipping in a toilet of Cafe Rouge. It may also be possible to make a claim to compensation for slipping in a Cafe Rouge toilet if the floor had recently been cleaned but warning signs were not present to warn customers of the hazard which existed, in which case the negligent actions of Cafe Rouge would again have resulted in your accident and injury.

However while you may be entitled to some compensation after you slipped in a Cafe Rouge toilet, this can be reduced if — as suggested in your question — a delay of one week occurred in seeking medical attention. Regardless of how minor you believed your injury to be, immediate medical attention should always be sought following a slipping accident in a Cafe Rouge toilet. It may be possible that you initially sustained a minor injury after your accident, but this deteriorated into something far more serious as a result of failure to seek immediate medical attention which may in turn affect your claim after slipping in a toilet of Cafe Rouge. Claiming compensation for slipping in a Cafe Rouge toilet may not be impossible in this scenario — however it is important to be aware that your compensation can be reduced if you have been negligent.

A claim for slipping in a toilet of Cafe Rouge may be more complicated if contributory negligence is a factor in your accident and injury. For this reason, you are advised to consult a personal injury solicitor at the earliest opportunity in order to assess your claim, calculate the amount of compensation for slipping in a Cafe Rouge toilet you may be entitled to claim and determine the strength of your claim after your slipping accident in a Cafe Rouge toilet. With representation from a solicitor you will maximise the likelihood of a successful claim, because of which you are advised to consult a solicitor at the earliest opportunity if you have slipped in a Cafe Rouge toilet.
