There any many more types of restaurant related accidents, so whatever your injury, contact Nigel Askew Solicitors today for specialist legal advice.
How long after my accident at work can I claim?
The law in England & Wales states that there is a 3 year period from the date of an accident in a restaurant in which you are able to make a claim.
As every accident at work claim is different, we recommend you seek legal advice as soon as possible, to avoid your claim falling outside of this claim period.
How much compensation can I expect for my slipping accident claim?
The amount of compensation you can expect to claim depends on a number of different factors, including the severity of your injuries, whether you have been unable to work as a result, your long-term work prospects and if you require any ongoing care or rehabilitation.
All successful claims may include compensation for the following:
- Compensation for your pain and suffering caused by your injuries
- Compensation for any lost earnings, past, present and future as a result of the accident
- Compensation for any adaptations that may be required to your home
Depending on the severity of your injuries and your current and future financial losses, restaurant related slipping claims can range in value from £25,000 to several hundred thousand pounds and in cases where someone has suffered life changing injuries, they can be valued in the millions.

Contact us for a free consultation
We offer all of our new clients a free and no obligation initial consultation, during which we will take details from you relating to your slipping accident at work.
We will ask you a series of questions to help us understand how the accident happened, the extent of your injuries and how it has affected your life.
Once we have a detailed picture of your accident and the severity of your injuries, if we believe there is a good chance of a successful claim, we may then offer to represent you on a No Win No Fee basis.
How much does it cost to make a claim?
We do not require our clients to pay us any upfront fees when starting a new work related claim for compensation.
If we believe your claim has good prospects of success, we will fund your claim using a “Conditional Fee Agreement”, which is also commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee” Agreement.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.
