Slipped on a Dirty Floor in Pret a Manger

Having slipped on a dirty floor in Pret a Manger can result in extensive injuries and, when those injuries are due to the carelessness of the staff or management of the premises, you should be entitled to make a compensation claim against Pret a Manger for slipping on a dirty floor.

Claims for slipping on a dirty floor in Pret a Manger are made against the company´s public liability insurers and not against an individual restaurant, and therefore it is important that you are aware of what can be included in a settlement of compensation for Pret a Manger slipping injuries.

Furthermore, even though the nature of your slipping accident in Pret a Manger might be the same as has happened to somebody else, the injuries that you suffered – and consequences that they make to your quality of life – are unique to you, and you should always discuss the circumstances of your Pret a Manger slipping injury with a solicitor at the earliest practical opportunity.

Your Eligibility to Make Claims for Slipping on a Dirty Floor in Pret a Manger

Your eligibility to make claims for slipping on a dirty floor in Pret a Manger will depend on two conditions – that you sustained a Pret a Manger slipping injury that was sufficiently severe to require medical treatment at a hospital or your doctor´s surgery, and that the slipping accident in Pret a Manger occurred due to a lack of care by somebody employed by the restaurant.

Should you have neglected to seek professional medical attention as soon as possible after having slipped on a dirty floor in Pret a Manger, there will be no record of your injury in your medical history to support a compensation claim against Pret a Manger for slipping on a dirty floor and, even if medical treatment was administered several days later, your claim for compensation for Pret a Manger slipping injuries could still be contested on the grounds that you exacerbated your injury by your own lack of care.

Establishing Liability for a Slipping Accident in Pret a Manger

The fact that you suffered a Pret a Manger slipping injury can be established by your medical history; however, establishing liability for a slipping accident in Pret a Manger can be much harder. Claims for slipping on a dirty floor in Pret a Manger have to be supported by evidence of negligence and it is not sufficient to say that the employee who assisted you after you had slipped on a dirty floor in Pret a Manger admitted it was their fault and said they were “sorry”.

Your compensation claim against Pret a Manger for slipping on a dirty floor has to establish that a preventable accident occurred due to the negligence of somebody who owed you a ‘duty of care’ while you were a customer in the restaurant – in this case a restaurant employee or manager. In order to successfully claim compensation for Pret a Manger slipping injuries you – or a solicitor on your behalf – may have to collect statements from other customers and staff who witnessed your accident, take photographs of an avoidable hazard which may have caused your accident and make an access request if your slipping accident in Pret a Manger was captured on CCTV.

Time Limits for Making Claims for Slipping on a Dirty Floor in Pret a Manger

Time limits for making claims for slipping on a dirty floor in Pret a Manger exist to encourage claimants to make claims for a Pret a Manger slipping injury while evidence of negligence is fresh and to protect the company´s public liability insurers from the constant threat of litigation. With the exception of claims involving children, you have three years in which to claim compensation for Pret a Manger slipping injuries from the date on which your injuries from a slipping accident in Pret a Manger are diagnosed.

Although three years may seem suitable time in which to prepare and submit a compensation claim against Pret a Manger for slipping on a dirty floor, should your solicitor have to wait for the results of an HSE investigation to support your claim for having slipped on a dirty floor in Pret a Manger or a medical report to determine whether you have sustained a psychological injury in your accident, the window of opportunity can close very quickly.
