For most of us, visiting a restaurant is a great experience. Whether you’re dining with friends and family, a loved one or even enjoying a moment’s peace and dining alone, there is a lot to be said for having a meal prepared for you with none of the associated cleaning or tidying.
For the most part, the experience should simply be remembered for the good food and pleasant atmosphere but when dining out, it’s important to remember that you’re putting your health into another person’s hands and it can give great peace of mind to know that the person or the organisation in question takes their responsibility towards you seriously.
In the event that an accident or incident in a restaurant did leave you or a member of your party with injuries, you have the right to make a claim for compensation from Rushmoor ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors.
Although they might not be professionals, most people are aware of basic food hygiene rules. They will avoid cross contamination in their own kitchens and know that food has to be thoroughly heated before it can be served in order to prevent bacteria from making the diner poorly. In the event of failure of this, Rushmoor ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors could seek compensation on behalf of anyone who feel ill as a result.
Professional health and safety goes some way beyond these basic common sense rules and the legislation which governs food safety is extremely involved. Kitchen owners and managers have to ensure that they take all necessary precautions to safeguard their customers and to ensure that food is kept safely and securely to discourage pests and vermin which would damage the food.
However, what they also need to ensure as they are serving meals is that they do so safely to avoid accidents as well as food poisoning. For example, if a waitress were to trip over whilst carrying a plate of hot food and that food burn a customer, said customer could have the right to make a claim for their injuries with Rushmoor ‘no win, no fee’ practitioners. All circumstances are different and an injured party would have to prove that the restaurant owners and staff failed to take adequate care or were negligent in their duties and this negligence led to the injuries in question. Accident Advice Helpline offer a 30 second test to examine the validity of any claim prior to pursuing it.
