Compensation For Accidents and Injuries At McDonalds
Accidents, Injuries, Slips and Trips At McDonalds
In the UK roughly 2.5 million customers a day visit a McDonalds restaurant, while the company employs around 67,000 people. Given these numbers it is impossible to completely eliminate the threat of an accident occurring in a McDonalds restaurant. Under the Occupiers Liability Act 1957 McDonalds owes a 'common duty of care' to all 'lawful' visitors to its outlets and premises. A high percentage of personal injury claims against fast food restaurants relate to slip, trip and fall accidents. Wet floors, discarded food, drinks and wrappers are the most of common causes of slip and trip accidents. You may be injured while working, eating or simply visiting a McDonalds restaurant. The owner of the premises must guarantee your protection from hazards, as far as reasonably possible.
Typical Causes Of McDonalds Accidents
The general rule in busy restaurants is that all potential hazards to customers and staff must be eliminated as soon as they are identified. As a customer you should expect to be served by reasonably competent individuals. Injuries to restaurant customers most often result from negligence on the part of the restaurant's staff. An employee cleaning floor surfaces may leave them wet or covered with residue cleaning fluids, presenting a clear danger to customers. Where such hazards exist and cannot be immediately resolved staff are obliged to provide protective barriers and clear warning signs for customers. McDonalds must also ensure there are an adequate number of staff to deal with such risks. The same dangers are faced by restaurant employees, along with additional threats such as burns from hot surfaces (know as McDonalds accident at work burns) and cuts from sharp kitchen implements. Often customers have been burnt at drive through McDonalds when being handed hot drinks and the lids have not been secured properly. These burns at McDonalds receive high compensation amounts for the scarring. We have successfully obtained compensation for injuries at drive through McDonalds. Both customers and staff may also bring a product liability claim against McDonalds if they have been poisoned or made sick by poorly prepared food or beverages. Accidents in McDonalds should be immediately reported to management and recorded in their accident book. Details of any witnesses to the accident should be taken, along with photos of the scene or hazard.
