What’s your favourite takeaway? Chinese, Indian, sushi, pizza – we all love a takeaway when we’re too tired to cook after work or when it’s the weekend, and there’s nothing quite like relaxing with a takeaway and a movie.
But if you’ve been injured in an accident in a takeaway, you might find your evening is spoiled and you could be suffering from ongoing pain as you recover from your injuries.
We’re here to help you get personal injury compensation and Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury lawyers won’t charge you extortionate fees upfront as we provide a 100% no win, no fee* service, giving you one less thing to worry about.
Are takeaways dangerous places?
You could be injured in an accident in a takeaway whether you’re a customer or working in the takeaway itself – but that’s not to say that they are dangerous places. Takeaway workers could be injured whilst preparing food in the kitchen, with slips, trips and falls, burns and lacerations common. Customers could slip on a wet floor or spilled food, or be struck down with food poisoning after eating takeaway food.
You could be injured by building works taking place at the takeaway or struck by a falling sign as you leave the premises. You could even be injured by damaged seating or flooring in the takeaway – for example a broken chair could collapse or cut you whilst you could trip on damaged floor tiles and sustain serious injuries such as sprains, strains, broken bones or even head injuries.
What should you do next?
It’s easy to assume you’re to blame for your own accident in a takeaway, but if somebody else is to blame – for example, if you have slipped on a wet floor where no warning signs had been displayed – then you could find yourself in a position where you’re eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
Since we were established in 2000 we have helped hundreds of people claim compensation after things have gone wrong at their local takeaway and we could help you too.
You’ll need to make a claim within three years of your accident, so make sure you don’t leave it too late. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to find out how we can help you claim. Our advisors are on hand to offer confidential, no-obligation advice, so it’s totally up to you what happens next.
