Slipped on a Wet Floor in Frankie & Benny’s Restaurant

Having slipped on a wet floor in Frankie & Benny’s restaurant 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 Frankie & Benny’s for slipping on a wet floor.

Claims for slipping on a wet floor in Frankie & Benny’s 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 Frankie & Benny’s wet floor injuries.

Furthermore, even though the nature of your slipping accident in Frankie & Benny’s 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 Frankie & Benny’s slipping injury with a solicitor at the earliest practical opportunity.

Your Eligibility to Make Claims for Slipping on a Wet Floor in Frankie & Benny’s

Your eligibility to make claims for slipping on a wet floor in Frankie & Benny’s will depend on two conditions – that you sustained a Frankie & Benny’s slipping injury that was sufficiently severe to require medical treatment at a hospital or your doctor´s surgery, and that the slipping accident in Frankie & Benny’s 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 wet floor in Frankie & Benny’s restaurant, there will be no record of your injury in your medical history to support a compensation claim against Frankie & Benny’s for slipping on a wet floor and, even if medical treatment was administered several days later, your claim for compensation for Frankie & Benny’s wet floor 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 Frankie & Benny’s

The fact that you suffered a Frankie & Benny’s slipping injury can be established by your medical history; however, establishing liability for a slipping accident in Frankie & Benny’s can be much harder. Claims for slipping on a wet floor in Frankie & Benny’s 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 wet floor in Frankie & Benny’s restaurant admitted it was their fault and said they were “sorry”.

Your compensation claim against Frankie & Benny’s for slipping on a wet floor has to establish that an accident – which could have been prevented – occurred because of 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 Frankie & Benny’s wet floor 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 slipping accident in Frankie & Benny’s and make an access request if your accident was captured on CCTV.

Making a Compensation Claim Against Frankie & Benny’s for Slipping on a Wet Floor

When your claim can be verified with evidence, your solicitor will compose a ‘Letter of Claim’, advising the restaurant´s public liability insurance company that you are making a compensation claim against Frankie & Benny’s for slipping on a wet floor. The restaurant´s insurers have ninety days to conduct their own investigation into your slipping accident in Frankie & Benny’s and inform your solicitor whether they accept liability for their policyholder´s negligence and for you having slipped on a wet floor in Frankie & Benny’s restaurant.

No mention is made of how much compensation for Frankie & Benny’s wet floor injuries you may be entitled to receive at this point – indeed the full extent of your injuries may not yet be known and the value of claims for slipping on a wet floor in Frankie & Benny’s can be affected by scarring – both physical and psychological – which may not yet have manifested. Only when your solicitor is satisfied that the full consequences of your Frankie & Benny’s slipping injury are known will he or she initiate talks with the restaurant´s insurers to agree the compensation settlement to which you may be entitled.

Children´s Claims for a Frankie & Benny’s Slipping Injury

If your child has slipped on a wet floor in Frankie & Benny’s restaurant, he or she will have to be represented by you or another parent or a guardian acting as a ‘litigation friend’ in order to make a compensation claim for a slipping accident in Frankie & Benny’s – as minors (children under the age of eighteen years) are not permitted by law to make a compensation claim against Frankie & Benny’s for slipping on a wet floor or instruct a solicitor to do so on their behalf.

‘Litigation friends’ must be prepared to take financial responsibility if claims for slipping on a wet floor in Frankie & Benny’s are unsuccessful and all settlements of compensation for Frankie & Benny’s wet floor injuries must first be approved by a judge before being paid into court funds – where they can be accessed on application to the court if you need to replace money spent on obtaining medical treatment to attend to your child´s Frankie & Benny’s slipping injury.
