I was burned by hot drink in Caffe Nero, but the manager says I cannot claim as I should have noticed the coffee was hot, is this correct?
If you have been burned by hot drink in Caffe Nero, you may be entitled to claim compensation for any injuries which have been sustained if you have been the victim of negligence. Compensation for burning by hot drink in Caffe Nero may be possible if you have been injured because of Caffe Nero’s failure to perform their duty of care. As a customer, you have the right to not expect to sustain a scalding injury from Caffe Nero hot drink. Should Caffe Nero fail to perform this duty of care, you may be entitled to claim for scalding by hot drink in Caffe Nero.
You could be entitled to make a claim for having been burned by hot drink in Caffe Nero if the actions — or lack of action — of a staff member resulted in your accident and injury. This could be possible if you were handed a cup which should, but did not, have a lid on it thus increasing the likelihood of sustaining a scalding injury from Caffe Nero hot drink. It is also possible that your drink was superheated to the extent that the middle was far hotter than the outside of the drink, meaning that if the staff member who served you the drink had failed to take precautions to prevent the likelihood of an accident occurring — for instance, stirring the drink before serving — you may be entitled to compensation for burning by hot drink in Caffe Nero. Even if an individual staff member was responsible for your injury, a claim for scalding by hot drink in Caffe Nero will be made against the store for failure to adequately train or supervise their staff.
However there are some circumstances in which you may not be entitled to seek compensation after being burned by hot drink in Caffe Nero. This may be the situation if you are determined to have contributed to the extent of your own scalding injury from Caffe Nero hot drink in any way. For example, if you neglect to seek immediate medical attention for your injuries following your accident, it may be considered that your injuries deteriorated due to the delay in seeking professional medical assistance and your compensation for burning by hot drink in Caffe Nero can be reduced to reflect this negligence.
In order to determine liability with a claim for scalding by hot drink in Caffe Nero, you are advised to consult a personal injury solicitor at the earliest opportunity. Your solicitor can advise on the compensation for burning by hot drink in Caffe Nero you may be entitled to claim, which will be useful if you are offered compensation by Caffe Nero’s insurers. Such offers are often made in order to save money for the insurance company rather than providing the victim with a fair amount of compensation for their scalding injury from a Caffe Nero hot drink. For this reason, you are advised to contact a personal injury solicitor before accepting any such offer, and who can advise on whether this offer represents a fair settlement if you have been burned by a hot drink in Caffe Nero.
