If you have been out shopping all day, or you’ve had a hard day at work, the sight of a coffee shop can be a welcome one indeed. You could welcome a nice cup of coffee, and perhaps a muffin or pastry to go along with it.
However, we’re fairly sure you wouldn’t welcome the prospect of being hurt in a coffee shop. Very few customers ever experience anything like this, of course, but the chance is sometimes there for something like this to happen. Burns, scalds, slips and falls could all potentially occur. They may be rare, but to the people who have experienced such things, such an incident can be painful and disruptive to their lives.
The different ways you could be hurt in a coffee shop
As we have already mentioned, there are many ways in which you could be hurt while visiting a coffee shop. However, the importance here is in considering how a particular incident occurs. This is very important, because it could help determine the likely outcome of a compensation claim for your injuries.
In order to win such a claim, you must have proof that another individual was negligent. This could be negligence in the manner they served you (i.e. if they scalded you by spilling an over-full hot drink on you) or in failing to do their job properly. This might relate to failing to clear up a spillage on the floor that you later slip over in, causing you to injure yourself in some manner.
