I was burned by hot food in Wagamama when the waiter tripped and boiling hot soup spilled down my front, how do I make a claim?
In order to make a claim for when you were burned by hot food in Wagamama it is advisable that you contact a personal injury claims solicitor with experience in restaurant related injury claims at the first possible moment. They will be able to assess your claim for hot food burn in Wagamama, inform you of whether or not it is worth pursuing and advise you on how best to proceed.
If you can establish the negligence of the restaurant then it is very likely that you have a viable claim for burned in Wagamama injury compensation. According to the Occupiers Liability Act (1957) all public establishments owe their customers a duty of care to ensure their health and safety while they are on the premises. This means that the surroundings of Wagamama should be safe and free from any potential hazards. Therefore, an injury sustained while in Wagamama that is not the fault of the customer suggests a breach in the duty of care that Wagamama owes everyone who visits the establishment.
Your solicitor will evaluate your burned in Wagamama injury compensation claim based on a variety of factors. These may include your age, gender, the pain and suffering you endured during the accident and the subsequent impact your burn injury has on your quality of life. All of this is relevant because no matter what the severity of your injury is, the effects of it could be different depending on these factors. For example, a young female who has sustained a scarring injury may be compensated more than an older man who has suffered the same injury. This is because women are generally compensated more for obvious cosmetic injuries because of the pressure from society for women to be beautiful. Additionally, a man in his sixties would not have to live with such scarring for as long as a woman in her twenties would.
Therefore it is advisable that you gather as much evidence as possible, not only to prove the restaurant’s negligence, but also to demonstrate the impact your burn injury has had on your life. You should retain all documentation that could be used as evidence, this includes any medical receipts, medical records, a copy of the accident report you should have made in Wagamama’s “Accident Report Book” and any CCTV footage that recorded the incident that you have been able to obtain. You should also try to maintain a diary where you can record any instances where your burns have prevented you from taking part in activities that you used to enjoy. For example, if you haven’t been able to take part in any pastimes or social activities because of any anxiety your burn marks have caused you should take note of this.
This is a general overview of how your claim for hot food burn in Wagamama may be assessed, it is by no means a substitute for the specific information your solicitor will be able to provide. In order to begin the claims process as soon as possible, you should contact your solicitor to discuss when you were burned by hot food in Wagamama.
