    What could be nicer during an afternoon of shopping than a good sit down and a nice cup of tea? Not much. Fortunately, if you’re in a large shopping mall you’ll typically be able to find a food service business or two that will be able to furnish you with some much needed refreshment. In fact, many shopping malls have whole floors given over to restaurants, fast food outlets and cafes. In some places, you really will be spoiled for choice.

    You may find when visiting one of these that you’ll need to help yourself to any beverages you want from some form of self-service machine, regardless of whether you’re after something hot or something cold. Many food service businesses employ the use of these to free up their staff and save money.

    It’s a system that usually works very well indeed, but things can go wrong. If you suffer any form of injury that was not your fault that came about as a result of you using a self-service drinks dispenser, there will be a chance that you might be able to take legal action.

    If you’re wondering what could possibly go wrong when using a self-service drinks machine, you might be surprised.

    You’re at your local shopping mall and have already bought the lion’s share of what you were looking for. You have a few extra bits and bobs to purchase, but decide that it will be a good idea to grab a quick cup of coffee before you do so. Thoughts of Newcastle upon Tyne personal injury claims are very far from your mind. You proceed to a café and grab yourself a tray. After selecting a nice looking piece of cake, you use the self-service coffee machine. Once you’ve paid for your items, you find a table and sit down. You take a sip of your coffee, and feel the most horrendous burning sensation at the back of your throat.

    It transpires that the coffee machine was being cleaned and dispensed cleaning fluid into your cup. Under these circumstances, there will be a chance that you might be able to take some form of personal injury action against the café where you purchased the drink.
