Illnesses and restaurant accidents are regular compensation claims we deal with. Despite the fact that the vast majority of restaurants in the UK do their best to treat their customers with care, accidents and illnesses can occur at any time. If the restaurant owners can show they took reasonable actions to keep their diners safe, then there will be instances where the restaurant owner’s negligence cannot be attributed and the restaurant owner can avoid liability. Nevertheless, negligence may have played a part in some accidents which could leave the restaurant vulnerable to restaurant compensation claims for injury and illness negligence.
What are the Different Types of Restaurant Accident Claims?
Restaurants are places which house a wide range of potential injury risks if health and safety legislations aren’t or are poorly adhered to.
Common restaurant injuries range between slippery kitchen floors due to grease or moisture in the air, burns and scolds due to improper food handling equipment and cuts and wounds, often due to improper training when using sharp equipment such as knives.
Other restaurant injuries could include strains due to heavy lifting which can occur due to improper furniture handling training or food poisoning.
Today, there are many legislations chefs must adhere to in line with food hygiene to ensure all food served is safe for consumers. This includes temperatures, kitchen cleanliness, food storage cleanliness among many other factors.
Working and owning a restaurant; requires close attention to detail where health and safety is concerned to ensure minimal injuries are obtained. If your employer has failed to equip you with the correct PPE, accurate handling equipment or poor training which has lead to an injury of any kind, you may be entitled to compensation.
Claiming compensation for an allergic reaction is also something we commonly help people with. Allergen information must be provided in writing by the restaurant. They might include allergen information on their menu or provide information about how to find it. If the dish you have ordered has been marked as ‘allergen‘-free and you have a reaction to a known allergen, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
Regulations that Protect Patrons
Apart from health and safety regulations affecting business owners, the Occupiers Liability Act 1957 places a common duty of care on restaurant operators. This common duty of care is extended to all its visitors.
They must ensure that the dining establishment is suitably equipped and provides a safe environment for all guests. Restaurant owners are also obligated to maintain the premises surrounding their establishments. This could be an outside dining area or the car parking area.
It is possible to face criminal charges for failing to adhere to the Occupiers Liability Act 1957, even though this would be separate from an injury compensation claim. A criminal charge may, however, make your claim for compensation stronger. Getting legal advice from someone experienced in handling restaurant accident claims is the best decision you can make. If you would like Tylers to access your case on a No-Win-No-Fee basis, please don’t hesitate to contact us for free impartial legal advice.
Can Tylers Deal With My Restaurant Illness Compensation Claim?
Tylers are experts in dealing with claims for restaurant illnesses. As a result of the Food Safety Act 1990, restaurants, pubs, bistros, and other establishments that serve food cannot prepare food in any way that could harm human health. The food must conform to what the consumer expects in nature, substance, or quality, as well as be labelled in a truthful and accurate manner.
Additionally, the Food Hygiene (England) Regulations 2006 (as amended) (and the equivalent regulations in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland) specify the hygienic requirements that all food businesses must obey, from facilities and premises to employees’ personal hygiene.
Following good hygiene practices can reduce the risk of bacteria contamination in restaurants. Cleaning the kitchen, its utensils and the preparation areas regularly and thoroughly is essential, as well as storing and preparing food in a suitable manner in the future. To reduce the risks, employees must understand the dangers and receive appropriate training.
The restaurant could be held liable for food poisoning contracted by a guest if these practices are neglected.
