People can make Costa Coffee accident claims when they have suffered a personal injury as a direct result of an accident caused by the firm’s negligence or the negligence of its employees. You must have the injury assessed by a doctor and recorded in your medical records if you are to claim compensation against Costa Coffee for it. For the victim to be able to claim compensation, Costa must have failed in its duty of care towards the public and its employees, and these failings must have led to the accident. Proving this can be complicated, and if you are to make a compensation claim, you will need the professional assistance of Clearwater Solicitors if you are to give yourself the best possible chance of success.
There are a range of different forms Costa Coffee injury compensation claims can take, but some of the biggest dangers in coffee shops are:
– Slips and trips at Costa Coffee
Spilled coffee, improper cleaning systems, uneven flooring and a range of other failings can lead to trips and slips at Costa Coffee. The company must ensure that these hazards do not pose a risk to employees or the public, and can be liable in Costa Coffee compensation claims if it fails to do so.
– Falls from broken chairs
Costa must ensure its chairs are safe for the public to use, so if you sit on a chair which collapses, you can claim compensation for your personal injuries.
– Scalding and burns at Costa Coffee
When hot liquids spill on staff or customers, they can cause serious burns and scalds. Costa also serves food, which could burn a customer and lead to a Costa injury claim.
If you want to claim compensation against Costa Coffee, the following tips could help your case:
– Take photographs to support your claim
– Take down the contact details of any witnesses
– Report the accident to Costa and have it recorded in the company’s accident book
– See a doctor about your injuries or go to hospital
