Have you been burnt by hot drinks in a school cafeteria? If so, there’s a big chance we will be able to get compensation for you. We may also be able to help if you need to claim on behalf of your child. There’s no denying that school canteens are hectic environments, but the people in charge of the facility have a duty of care and are responsible for preventing injuries.
Have you come to harm through being burnt by hot drinks in a school cafeteria?
There are many ways someone could become injured whilst in a school canteen. They could slip on food or drink that hasn’t been cleaned up properly, can be injured by faulty appliances or may be scalded when a hot drink is served to them carelessly. It’s not just pupils that can come to harm in school canteens. Teachers, canteen staff and visitors may also come to harm. You could even need to claim compensation after suffering from food poisoning because of something you were served. Wet floors can be a big problem in schools and can cause slips, trips and falls, which can put you out of action for some time.
