Suffered after an accident at work?

We can help you make a personal injury claim

November 24th 2005 saw the much-debated 24 hour licensing laws finally come into force across England and Wales, making it legal for sanctioned establishments to serve alcohol throughout the night and on into the morning.

Government ministers have already made clear their fears about escalating public disorder and watchdogs have warned against the potential health risks of further alcohol consumption, but now it seems that the new laws have created another very real possibility- an increase in personal injury claims.

With constant drinking in pubs and clubs a possibility, and the opportunity to buy cheap alcohol from a supermarket at any time now readily available, drink-related crime such as physical assault, damage to property and anti-social behaviour are likely to increase. And where there is a crime there is almost always a victim.

An employer’s responsibility
Concerns for safety of employees serving alcohol have been highlighted by TU chiefs who fear that their members may become victims of drunken assaults. Unions are calling for staff to be properly protected from these dangers, and warn that if their advice is not heeded then employers could find themselves the subject of compensation claims by traumatised staff.

The changes in the law are likely to result in staff in a number of occupations facing an increasing risk of drunken assault and intimidation. Staff in any job have a right to work without fear of attack and personal injury, and owners are being called upon to ensure that the necessary security measures are put in place to protect their employees.

Afterall, it is ultimately the employer’s responsibility to protect the welfare of their staff, and by failing to do so properly, they open themselves up to the veritable possibility of being faced with a personal injury claim and having to pay expensive worker compensation.
