Have you been hurt in a café or restaurant?
As many cafes and restaurants serve hot food and drinks throughout the day and night, it’s unsurprising that customers can suffer injuries from time to time. Whilst a spillage of a cold drink might not cause too many problems, shattered glass or broken china could cause a nasty cut or laceration. Similarly, a burn from a hot drink could result in a painful injury and could even leave you with a permanent scar.
If you are hurt by someone or something whilst in a café or a restaurant, it’s unlikely that they will have set out to hurt you. In most circumstances they will simply have spilt something on you or perhaps have tripped over and fallen on you. However, even though they didn’t set out to hurt you, they could still be liable for your injuries if they caused them, an accident solicitor in Leek Wootton will still be able to help you make a compensation claim against them.
Could I make a claim with an accident solicitor in Leek Wootton if another customer hurt me?
If your injury wasn’t caused by the café staff but by another customer, it may be that they are liable for your injuries and an injury solicitor in Leek Wootton could help you to make a compensation claim against them.
If you’re not sure who actually caused your injuries, you may still find it worthwhile to contact an accident solicitor in Leek Wootton as they may be able to help you to access crucial evidence, such as CCTV, which could highlight who is responsible for your injuries.
Before you make a claim for compensation, however, you may be keen to learn more about the claims process.
