    Pontypool claims


    Are you thinking about making Pontypool claims? While it is less common than in the USA, it is possible to find drive-through restaurants in the UK – the type where you can trundle up to a counter in your car and order some food and drink, before driving off again to eat it. Invariably, the food you’ll be able to buy at these types of places will not be Michelin star standard, but that’s not really the point — it’s quick, easy, convenient, and cheap.

    However, it will be wise to take care when bringing the food into your car when it’s passed to you, lest you end up with it in your lap. Unfortunately, there won’t be much you’ll be able to do about it if the person serving you makes a mistake while serving your meal.

    While it will be one thing to get a lap full of burger and chips, it will be quite another if you have a hot beverage spilled on you. If this were to happen to you as a result of the negligence of the person who served you, there will be a chance that you are able to take some form of 100% no-win, no-fee Pontypool claims action for compensation.

    Hot beverage burns and Pontypool claims action

    Imagine that you had decided to pop in to your local drive-through to pick up a quick snack and a nice cup of tea. You place your order, with no thoughts of suffering an injury in an accident that was not your fault crossing your mind at all. Your food is passed to you, followed by your hot drink. Unfortunately, the person serving you has filled the cup too high and failed to secure its top in place properly. As a consequence of this, piping hot tea is spilled on you when the drink is passed to you.

    The pain is excruciating, so much so that you feel that you will have to make a visit to hospital, where it is confirmed that you have suffered second-degree burns. You are forced to take time off from work unpaid to recover, and can hardly walk for some time.
