What if I had a few too many drinks at the local pub and got injured falling down the stairs when leaving the pub?
Drinking alcohol is a personal responsibility. Sometimes, excessive drinking can prevent you from getting compensation. However, if the stairs you fall down were in bad condition, or there was poor lighting, or the pub over-served you alcohol, these factors could result in the pub or the owners of the property being liable to compensate you.
