Shopping mall accidents: Hot liquid burns

When you think of shopping injuries, you may think about tiredness from walking around the shops, or sore limbs from carrying too many bags. One injury that you may not consider is a burn from a hot liquid spillage. In fact this is a very common accident that occurs in shopping malls.

Liquid burns in shopping malls

Hot liquid burns predominantly occur due to waiters or waitresses spilling a hot drink onto a customer as they are serving them in a restaurant or cafe situated in a shopping mall. Hot drinks can also be spilt if they are served in faulty cups, or in take away cups with badly fitting lids.

However, burns could also be caused if hot liquid is spilt onto a customer in a shop that does not sell food or drink. If, for example, a staff member in a shop has a hot drink which spills on you as the customer, then this would be negligence on their behalf, and you could gain compensation.

Finally, burns could occur if another customer spills a hot drink on you, perhaps as you are both walking through the shopping mall.

In any of these scenarios you could be entitled to personal injury compensation, as other parties have been negligent and it has resulted in you gaining an injury.

Burns from hot liquids can result in permanent scarring, and may leave you with additional medical care or loss of earnings as you take time off work. Making a personal injury claim could provide you with compensation for these situations.
