If you have been hurt in an accident in Frankie and Bennys restaurant, it may be possible that you are eligible to seek personal injury compensation claim against the restaurant´s insurance company. Accidents can happen in any place of public access or at work but, when they could have been prevented and your injuries in Frankie and Bennys are due to the carelessness of a member of staff or the negligence of the restaurant manager, you should seek professional legal advice about making a Frankie and Bennys injury compensation claim.
Qualifying for Frankie and Bennys Accident Compensation
In order to make claims for being injured in a Frankie and Bennys, you must have sustained an injury for which you received medical care from a doctor or GP. There will be no mention of your injuries in Frankie and Bennys recorded in your medical history in order to support a Frankie and Bennys injury compensation claim if you relied on first aid administered at the scene of your accident, or treated your injuries when you returned home.
It also has to be demonstrated that your accident in Frankie and Bennys restaurant was attributable to a breach in the ‘duty of care’ owed to you by the restaurant as a customer or employee and an injury compensation claim against Frankie and Bennys has to include evidence of negligence – either by one of the restaurant´s staff or by the restaurant manager. Proving negligence in a claim for Frankie and Bennys accident compensation can often be complex, as the restaurant does not have an ‘absolute’ duty of care in every accident scenario.
Burned by Hot Coffee in the Restaurant
There could be several scenarios in which negligence was present if your injuries in Frankie and Bennys were due to being burned by hot coffee. Claims for being injured in a Frankie and Bennys would most likely be successful if:-
- Your hands or body were burned by hot coffee in the restaurant because your coffee was served in a cup with an ill-fitting lid,
- You were burned by hot coffee in the restaurant because a restaurant staff member spilled coffee on you while serving another customer,
- The temperature of the coffee was too high and your Frankie and Bennys injury compensation claim is for burns to your mouth.
Burned by Hot Food in the Restaurant
If you have been burned by hot food in the Restaurant, collecting evidence of negligence in support of an injury compensation claim against Frankie and Bennys is likely to be further complicated by the fact that the food is likely to have been disposed of. Again, it would support claims for being injured in a Frankie and Bennys if you were able to make a note of the restaurant employee´s name who served you or any witnesses to your accident in Frankie and Bennys restaurant, but understandable if your mouth was so badly burned you were not able to do so.
Slipped on Wet Floor in the Restaurant Toilet
If you have slipped on a wet floor in the restaurant´s toilets,it may also be difficult to establish negligence in support of claims for being injured in a Frankie and Bennys. The lack of an ‘absolute’ duty of care may be used in the defence of a Frankie and Bennys injury compensation claim if a hazard such as a wet floor in the restaurant toilet has only just materialised, and the restaurant staff have not had a reasonable amount of time to identify the risk of an accident in Frankie and Bennys restaurant and take measures to eliminate it.
A solicitor representing you in an injury compensation claim against Frankie and Bennys would request details of the cleaning schedule to see if the hazard should have been identified earlier and your injuries in Frankie and Bennys could have been prevented. He or she will also take photos of the accident scene and speak with restaurant employees that may have attended you after the incident to accompany your Frankie and Bennys accident compensation claim.
Walked into a Glass Door in the Restaurant
If you were injured because you walked into a glass door in the restaurant, claims for being injured in a Frankie and Bennys will have to demonstrate that an avoidable hazard existed in contravention of the Occupier Liability Act. Your entitlement to claim Frankie and Bennys accident compensation will depend on whether the door had only just become a hazard due to a mechanical problem and if the restaurant staff had a reasonable amount of time to recognise the risk of an injury and attend to it or erect a hazard warning sign.
Although a solicitor assisting you with an injury compensation claim against Frankie and Bennys should be able to determine whether your accident could have been avoided; any customer injuries in Frankie and Bennys which result in the customer being taken to hospital by an ambulance should, by law, be reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). If the HSE decide to investigate your accident in Frankie and Bennys restaurant, the result of the investigation could add considerable strength to your Frankie and Bennys injury compensation claim.
