INJURED WHILE WORKING FOR WETHERSPOONS?
Pubs employ bar staff, cleaners and admin/managerial employees, working in offices, bars, and kitchens. Like all employers, pubs are legally obligated to keep their employees safe while they are at work and must put measures in place in order to do so.
If you’ve been injured at work in an incident that came about due to your employer neglecting their duty of care, you may be entitled to compensation.
To do this you will need to be able to demonstrate that:
- You were an employee of the company
- Your employer neglected their duty of care
- This negligence was the cause of your injury
Being able to demonstrate these points indicates that your employer is responsible for your injury due to the breach of their duty of care. In that case, you should seek legal advice from the expert team of personal injury lawyers at Jefferies Solicitors. If you are eligible, they will fight your case to secure you the compensation you deserve.

AMOUNT OF COMPENSATION FOR CLAIMS AGAINST WETHERSPOONS
All personal injury cases are unique and so the amount of compensation awarded in each case is also unique. The amount of compensation that is awarded is determined by looking at two distinct factors – general damages and special damages.
The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are owed. This will usually be determined by undergoing a medical examination, from which a report is created that outlines the length of time the injuries will take to heal as well as their severity.
Our compensation calculator gives an indication of how much you might be entitled to based upon your injuries. Jefferies Solicitors will take these different details relating to your injury into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded, which will then be put forward to the opposing side and the judge.
However, compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries. If you have had to pay for treatment or travel to treatment, compensation may also be able to cover this as well. Therefore, you should keep any receipts or other documents that help to outline the extent of your financial losses, as caused by your accident/injuries.
