Establishing Liability In Subway Accident Claims
If you need to establish liability for an accident in Subway, the process of doing so differs between members of staff and restaurant diners. For members of the public who have an accident whilst shopping, a shopping slip trip fall claim will be viable if it can be proven that the restaurant has failed to meet the legal requirements of the Occupiers Liability Act with regards to ensuring safe public access to the building.
For employees of the restaurant, then as long as they have submitted a Subway incident report, by filling in the Subway accident book, the restaurant will be liable to claim compensation if it has failed in its Health & Safety compliance covering employee safety.
