I suffered great embarrassment and soft tissue damage when I was injured by a stool collapse in a pub after the chair gave way underneath me, can I claim compensation?
In order to successfully claim compensation for being injured by a stool collapse in a pub you will need to demonstrate that a third party who owed you a duty of care was at least partially responsible for your injury.
Claiming compensation for being injured by a stool collapse in a pub can seem like a complicated process, however there are a few basic steps you can take to ensure your claim for a bar stool injury is stronger. For example, in the immediate aftermath of the accident, your health should be your first priority before thinking about a pub compensation claim therefore you should seek a professional medical examination as soon as possible. Not only will it mean you greatly reducing the likelihood of suffering a severe injury but it will also ensure there is a record of your injury which can be used as evidence in your pub compensation claim.
You are advised to make a note of your accident in the pub’s ‘Accident Report Book’ and you should also obtain the contact details of anyone who saw the incident as the testimony of others who were there will greatly assist your claim for being injured by a stool collapse in a pub.
It would also be worthwhile speaking with a personal injury solicitor at this time, the majority of personal injury solicitors in the UK offer a free consultation service meaning you will be able to determine if it is worthwhile pursuing compensation for a bar stool injury without being under any financial obligation to a solicitor.
He or she will use the Judicial College as a base to calculate the potential value of your claim for being injured by a stool collapse in a pub and then will adjust the figure accordingly taking your age, sex and your general health prior to the accident into account.
