This article provides preliminary advice about making an injury compensation claim if you have been injured in an accident in Loch Fyne restaurant but, as no two claims for being injured in a Loch Fyne restaurant are likely to be identical – not only because of the nature of the injuries you may have sustained in the restaurant, but because of the impact your injuries will have made to your quality of life – it is important that you receive information about Loch Fyne accident compensation which relates to your own personal circumstances.
Qualifying for Loch Fyne Accident Compensation
In order to make claims for being injured in a Loch Fyne restaurant, it must be demonstrated that your accident in Loch Fyne restaurant was attributable to a breach in the ‘duty of care’ owed to you by the restaurant as a customer or employee and a injury compensation claim against Loch Fyne 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 Loch Fyne accident compensation can often be complex, as the restaurant does not have an ‘absolute’ duty of care in every accident scenario.
Burned by Hot Tea in the Restaurant
If your injuries in Loch Fyne restaurant were due to being burned by hot tea, it would assist your injury compensation claim against Loch Fyne if you were able to retain the cup with the ill-fitting lid, obtain the contact details of other restaurant customers who had been served tea at too high a temperature or made a note of the name of the restaurant employee who came to your assistance after your accident in Loch Fyne restaurant. However, it is understandable if you were more focused on seeking medical attention and were unable to do so, a solicitor should be able to collect evidence of negligence retrospectively to support your claim for Loch Fyne accident compensation
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 Loch Fyne 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 Loch Fyne restaurant if you were able to make a note of the restaurant employee´s name who served you or any witnesses to your accident in Loch Fyne restaurant, but understandable if your mouth was so badly burned you were not able to do so.
If you are a restaurant employee who has been burned by hot food while preparing it, a Loch Fyne injury compensation claim would have to show that your injuries in Loch Fyne restaurant were due to a lack of training, faulty heating equipment or the negligence of a colleague. Claims for Loch Fyne accident compensation for being burned by hot food are more straightforward in this scenario, but you are still advised to speak with a personal injury solicitor about your claim.
Fell over Food on the Floor in the Restaurant
If you have fallen over food on the floor in the restaurant it could also be difficult to establish negligence in support of claims for being injured in a Loch Fyne restaurant. The lack of an ‘absolute’ duty of care may be used in the defence of a Loch Fyne injury compensation claim if a hazard such as food on the floor has only just materialised, and the restaurant staff have not had a reasonable amount of time to identify the risk of an accident in Loch Fyne restaurant and take measures to eliminate it.
Fell Over a Carpet in the Restaurant
If you were injured because you fell over a carpet in the restaurant, claims for being injured in a Loch Fyne restaurant will have to demonstrate that an avoidable hazard existed. Your entitlement to claim Loch Fyne accident compensation will depend on whether the condition of the carpet had only just become a hazard and if the restaurant staff had a reasonable amount of time to act and avoid the accident.
Although a solicitor assisting you with an injury compensation claim against Loch Fyne should be able to determine whether your accident could have been avoided; any customer injuries in Loch Fyne restaurant 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 Loch Fyne restaurant, the result of the investigation could add considerable strength to your Loch Fyne injury compensation claim.
