Global fast food giants McDonald’s is one of the world’s largest employers, with restaurants in almost every country on Earth. It must ensure every property in its real estate portfolio is safe for the public, and that its employees and customers do not sustain any injuries as a result of its negligence. If it fails to do so, it can find itself liable in McDonald’s accident compensation claims. After an injury in McDonald’s, the company may try to reach an immediate settlement with you by offering you gift vouchers or a small sum of money. Do not accept this until you speak to a solicitor about your McDonald’s injury claim so you can ensure you are receiving all the money you deserve.
While a wide range of accidents can occur at McDonald’s, some of the key risk factors in its restaurants are:
– Slips and trips at McDonald’s, caused by spilled food or wet flooring
– Burns, such as by spilled coffee
– Food poisoning, caused by poor hygiene standards
McDonald’s is vicariously liable for the negligence of its employees, so if their negligence led to a customer or staff member suffering a personal injury, then it can still face McDonald’s injury claims.

A woman was eating in McDonald’s when her chair broke, causing her to injure her lower back. Her husband noticed the chair’s legs were seriously rusting. The victim took a year to recover from the injury, and McDonald’s insurers eventually admitted that the store was liable for the accident. The injured party received £2,500 compensation, plus court costs.
