Slipped on Dirty Floor in PizzaExpress Restaurant

Having slipped on dirty floor in PizzaExpress 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 PizzaExpress for slipping on a dirty floor.

Claims for slipping on a dirty floor in PizzaExpress 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 PizzaExpress injuries after slipping on a dirty floor.

Furthermore, even though the nature of your slipping accident in PizzaExpress 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 PizzaExpress slipping on a dirty floor injury with a solicitor at the earliest practical opportunity.

Your Eligibility to make Claims for Slipping on a Dirty Floor in PizzaExpress

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

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

Your compensation claim against PizzaExpress 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 PizzaExpress injuries after slipping on a dirty floor you – or a solicitor on your behalf – may be required to gather 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 PizzaExpress was captured on CCTV.

Making a Compensation Claim against PizzaExpress for Slipping on a Dirty Floor

Once the nature of your accident and injury can be proven through 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 PizzaExpress for slipping on a dirty floor. The restaurant´s insurers have ninety days to conduct their own investigation into your slipping accident in PizzaExpress and advise your solicitor whether they accept liability for their policyholder´s negligence and for you having slipped on dirty floor in PizzaExpress restaurant.

No mention is made of how much compensation for PizzaExpress injuries after slipping on a dirty floor 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 dirty floor in PizzaExpress can be affected by scarring – both physical and psychological – which may not yet have manifested. Only when your solicitor is completely aware of the full effects of your PizzaExpress slipping on a dirty floor injury will he or she commence negotiations with the restaurant´s insurance company to agree an appropriate compensation settlement.

Children´s Claims for a PizzaExpress Slipping on a Dirty Floor Injury

If your child has sustained a PizzaExpress slipping on a dirty floor injury, 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 PizzaExpress – as minors (children under the age of eighteen years) are not permitted by law to make a compensation claim against PizzaExpress for slipping on a dirty 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 dirty floor in PizzaExpress are unsuccessful and all settlements of compensation for PizzaExpress injuries after slipping on a dirty floor 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 injury after they slipped on dirty floor in PizzaExpress restaurant.
