Compensation success for coffee scald victim

When an everyday trip to buy a cup of coffee left one gentleman with a scalding injury, he turned to Bartletts personal injury solicitors in Chester, to help him secure the compensation he deserved.

The 36 year old warehouse worker was making his daily visit to his local fast-food restaurant drive-through, to get his morning cuppa. He ordered his favourite cup of coffee and made his way to the next hatch for collection. As the drive-through employee passed him the hot drink cup, the lid slipped, spilling the hot coffee all over the man’s arm.

The warehouse worker was left scalded and in substantial pain. He went straight to the accident and emergency department of his local hospital, where he was examined and treated. The man was in great deal of pain and discomfort, and the scald left his arm significantly red for quite some time.

Luckily he had not been permanently scarred, but the experience and pain he suffered was by no means forgettable. At which point he turned to Bartletts specialist injury lawyers.

Our lawyers were swiftly able to establish that the fast-food chain were responsible for the accident and submitted a claim for compensation to their insurance company. Bartletts successfully secured compensation for personal injuries on his behalf.
