Burned by Hot Coffee in Prezzo Restaurant

Having been burned by hot coffee in Prezzo restaurant can result in extensive injuries and, when those injuries are due to the carelessness of the staff or management of the premises, you should be entitled to make a compensation claim against Prezzo for a hot drink burn.

Claims for hot drink burns in Prezzo are made against the company´s public liability insurers and not against an individual restaurant, and therefore it is important that you are aware of what can be included in a settlement of compensation for Prezzo hot drink burn injuries.

Furthermore, even though the nature of your burn accident in Prezzo might be the same as has happened to somebody else, the injuries that you suffered – and consequences that they make to your quality of life – are unique to you, and you should always discuss the circumstances of your Prezzo hot drink injury with a solicitor at the earliest practical opportunity.

Your Eligibility to Make Claims for Hot Drink Burns in Prezzo

Your eligibility to make claims for hot drink burns in Prezzo will depend on two conditions – that you sustained a Prezzo hot drink injury that was sufficiently severe to require medical treatment at a hospital or your doctor´s surgery, and that the burn accident in Prezzo occurred due to a lack of care by somebody employed by the restaurant.

Should you have neglected to seek professional medical attention as soon as possible after being burned by hot coffee in Prezzo restaurant, there will be no record of your injury in your medical history to support a compensation claim against Prezzo for a hot drink burn and, even if medical treatment was administered several days later, your claim for compensation for Prezzo hot drink burn injuries could still be contested on the grounds that you exacerbated your injury by your own lack of care.

Making a Compensation Claim against Prezzo for a Hot Drink Burn

Once evidence of negligence has been collected, your solicitor will write a ‘Letter of Claim’, informing the restaurant´s public liability insurance company that you are making a compensation claim against Prezzo for a hot drink burn. The restaurant´s insurers have ninety days to perform their own investigation into your burn accident in Prezzo and advise your solicitor whether they accept liability for their policyholder´s negligence and for you being burned by hot coffee in Prezzo restaurant.

No mention is made of how much compensation for Prezzo hot drink burn injuries you may be entitled to receive at this point – indeed the full extent of your injuries may not yet be known and the value of claims for hot drink burns in Prezzo can be affected by scarring – both physical and psychological – which may not yet have manifested. Only when your solicitor is entirely aware of the impact of your Prezzo hot drink injury will he or she enter into negotiations with the restaurant´s insurers to agree an appropriate compensation settlement.

How Much Compensation for Prezzo Hot Drink Burn Injuries

The amount compensation for Prezzo hot drink burn injuries you will be entitled to will depend on the location, nature and severity of your injuries. Your solicitor will refer to the Judicial College Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages to locate similar claims for hot drink burns in Prezzo, and then adjust previous settlements of compensation for being burned by hot coffee in Prezzo restaurant to account for your age, gender and prior physical condition.

To this sum your solicitor will then factor into your compensation claim against Prezzo for a hot drink burn:-

  • compensation for Prezzo hot drink burn injuries can include loss of amenity if you cannot partake in regular social, leisure and domestic pursuits that would form part of your usual routine,
  • compensation for any quantifiable emotional distress that you may have been diagnosed with as a result of your burn accident in Prezzo, and
  • compensation for any expenses you have incurred – or may incur in the future – which are directly attributable to your Prezzo hot drink injury.

Time Limits for Making Claims for Hot Drink Burns in Prezzo

Time limits for making claims for hot drink burns in Prezzo exist to encourage claimants to make claims for a Prezzo hot drink injury while evidence of negligence is fresh and to protect the company´s public liability insurers from the constant threat of litigation. With the exception of claims involving children, you have three years in which to claim compensation for Prezzo hot drink burn injuries from the date on which your injuries from a burn accident in Prezzo are diagnosed.

Although three years may seem ample time in which to prepare and submit a compensation claim against Prezzo for a hot drink burn, should your solicitor have to wait for the results of an HSE investigation to support your claim for being burned by hot coffee in Prezzo restaurant or a medical report to determine whether you have sustained a psychological injury in your accident, the window of opportunity can close very quickly.
