Determining liability can be complicated, but it's an important part of the claim process. If you've been injured in a bar or nightclub and are unsure who is liable, Switalskis can help clarify this.

If you've been injured while working in a bar, pub or nightclub, you have every right to seek compensation. Employers have a legal obligation to provide a safe working environment for their staff, and this extends to venues like bars and nightclubs. They must adhere to health and safety regulations, which include proper training, adequate safety equipment, and a safe working environment. If they've failed in any of these areas, they could be held liable for your injuries.
Work-related injuries in such venues can range from slips and falls, to more serious issues like burns or even assault. Regardless of the type of injury, if it happened while you were working, you could be eligible for compensation.
It's vital to report the incident to your employer as soon as possible, and make sure it's recorded in the accident log. This will serve as important evidence when making your claim.
Navigating a work-related injury claim can be complex, but you don't have to go it alone. Switalskis is here to guide you every step of the way, helping you understand your rights and options. Our experienced team will help you gather the necessary evidence and build a strong case to secure the compensation you deserve.

Here's how it works:
Every case is unique, but our commitment to you remains the same: to provide clear, compassionate and expert guidance throughout the process.
Time is of the essence when it comes to making a compensation claim for an accident in a bar or nightclub. The general rule is that you have three years from the date of the accident to initiate a claim. This is known as the limitation period.
While the three-year limit is standard, there are some exceptions. For instance, if you were under 18 at the time of the accident, the three-year limit doesn't start until you turn 18, meaning you have until your 21st birthday to claim. Similarly, if you were mentally incapacitated at the time of the accident, the limitation period may be extended indefinitely.
Even though the law allows for three years, it's advisable to start your claim as soon as possible. Evidence can be lost and memories can fade, making it harder to build a strong case as time passes. If you're unsure whether you're still eligible to make a claim, don't hesitate to reach out to us.
If you were the innocent victim of an assault in a bar, pub or club, you could make a criminal injury compensation claim where the time limit is typically two years from the date of the incident.
The amount of compensation you could receive for a bar or nightclub accident claim varies widely depending on several factors. While it's difficult to give a precise figure without knowing the specifics of your case, here are some of the key elements that could influence the amount:
Switalskis has extensive experience in handling bar and nightclub accident claims. We'll take the time to understand the full impact the accident has had on your life and secure the best possible compensation for you.
Navigating the financial aspects of making a claim can be daunting, but at Switalskis, we aim to make the process as straightforward as possible.
Most of our bar or nightclub accident claims are funded through a no win, no fee agreement, also known as a conditional fee agreement, which means you won't have to pay any legal fees upfront. Instead, your legal costs are recovered from the compensation awarded if you win the case. If the claim is unsuccessful, you don't have to pay anything, reducing the financial risk involved in making a claim.
Once we've assessed the merits of your case, we'll explain the terms clearly, so you know exactly what to expect. Typically, a percentage of your compensation will be set aside to cover legal fees, but this will only be applicable if you win.
While no win, no fee covers the legal fees, there may be other costs such as court fees or medical report charges. However, these are often recoverable from the other side if you win your case.
At Switalskis, we're committed to transparency, and will walk you through all your funding options to find the one that's best for you.
The duration of a bar or nightclub accident claim can vary significantly depending on several factors. We understand that you're eager for a resolution, and we're committed to resolving your case as swiftly as possible. However, it's important to be aware of the elements that can influence the timeline of your claim:
While it's difficult to give a precise time frame, we'll always keep you updated on the progress of your claim and what you can expect at each stage.
You can still make a claim even if you were partly responsible for your accident in a bar or nightclub. This is known as contributory negligence, and it doesn't necessarily prevent you from seeking compensation. However, it's important to note that your level of responsibility will likely affect the amount of compensation you may receive.
For instance, if it's determined that you were 30% responsible for the accident because you were intoxicated, you might only receive 70% of the total compensation awarded for your injuries. The key is to prove that the bar or nightclub was also at fault to some degree, whether it's due to poor lighting, wet floors or inadequate security measures.
Speak to Switalskis, and we'll help you understand your rights and what you can realistically expect in terms of compensation. Our team will work diligently to gather all the necessary evidence and present a strong case on your behalf, making sure that you receive the fairest outcome possible.
