Tripping and Slipping Accidents in a Restaurant

Advice and Assistance from Cohen Cramer Solicitors

If you have sustained injury and loss as a result of a tripping or slipping accident while in a restaurant we can help you claim compensation. We have the knowledge and expertise to make sure you recover the compensation you deserve and to which you are entitled.

Your claim can be dealt with on a no win-no fee basis so there is no financial risk to you if your claim fails.

Accidents can occur due to spilt food or cooking materials, raised carpet edges, or wet floors; whatever the cause we can help.

We will look to recover an award not only for your injuries but also all and any financial losses that you may incur.

Your financial losses can include:

  • Damage or loss of personal property such as clothing, mobile phones etc.
  • Loss of income as a result of time away from work to recover, or for treatment
  • The cost of any medication or treatment that you may require. It doesn’t matter if the treatment is available on the NHS you can still recover the cost of private treatment from the defendant’s insurers.
  • Professional care costs if required.
  • Care received from family and friends. If your injuries are severe enough to require help from non-professionals you can recover compensation for the help received regardless of the fact that you have not paid for it. This is known as ‘gratuitous care’ and can be an important part of your claim if your injuries leave you incapacitated for any length of time
  • Travel costs incurred for treatment or examinations
  • Prejudice on the job market if your injuries are so severe so as to put you at a disadvantage if you need to find another job at some time in the future; this is known as a ‘Smith v Manchester’ Award
  • Adjustments and improvements to your home and car if required as a result of the severity of your injuries.

You have three years from the date of the accident (your 21st birthday if the accident occurred before you were 18) to start court proceedings, however the sooner you bring your claim the better, as evidence can disappear and witnesses recollections of event can fade causing problems when you do bring your claim.
