If you need pop up restaurant injury advice then talk to us at Accident Advice Helpline. Pop up restaurants have been around for a while and they are seen as an exciting and new way of either starting a business or advertising more established businesses. These restaurants can spring up just about anywhere – in someone’s living room or a vacant café. However, despite their apparent spontaneity and impermanence, there is actually a lot responsibility attached to running a restaurant to protect public health.
Pop up restaurants do not differ from more established restaurants in terms of the regulations that they must comply with. Staff will have to work with kitchen equipment that can be potentially dangerous and with hot food, and they need to be adequately trained to carry out their work safely. Injuries that commonly occur in restaurants are cuts, burns, slips and falls and inexperienced or inadequately trained staff are at greater risk of having an accident. Food poisoning is always a risk with any establishment that serves food and pop up restaurants are no exception.

If you were injured at a pop up restaurant or became ill after visiting a pop up restaurant it will help your case if you write down the details of what happened. You should also keep a record of all hospital or doctor visits, time taken off work and any additional expenses incurred such as prescription costs and travel expenses. As with any other accident it will help your case if you visit your doctor soon after the incident so that there is a record of your illness or injury. Having the opinion of a doctor on your injury or illness will carry more weight, especially if the case has to go to a court.
A pop up restaurant may offer you a small amount of compensation for your injury. However, you are not obliged to accept this. If the incident was minor, this may be a good offer, but if the incident is more serious then seek advice before accepting any offer of compensation.
