Walked into Glass Door in McDonalds

Having walked into glass door in McDonalds 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 McDonalds for walking into glass door.

Claims for walking into glass door in McDonalds 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 McDonalds walking into glass door injury.

Furthermore, even though others may have suffered an accident after walking into glass door in McDonalds and the nature of your accident might be the same as what 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 McDonalds injury after walking into glass door with a solicitor at the earliest practical opportunity.

Establishing Liability for an Accident after Walking into Glass Door in McDonalds

The fact that you suffered a McDonalds injury after walking into glass door can be established by your medical history; however, establishing liability for an accident after walking into glass door in McDonalds can be much harder. Claims for walking into glass door in McDonalds have to be supported by evidence of negligence and it is not sufficient to say that the employee who assisted you after you had walked into glass door in McDonalds admitted it was their fault and said they were “sorry”.

Your compensation claim against McDonalds for walking into glass door has to establish that a preventable accident occurred due to the negligence of somebody who owed you a ‘duty of care’ while you were a customer in the restaurant – in this case a restaurant employee or manager. In order to successfully claim compensation for McDonalds walking into glass door injury you – or a solicitor on your behalf – may have to collect statements from other customers and staff who witnessed your accident, take photographs of an avoidable hazard which may have caused your accident and make an access request if your accident after walking into glass door in McDonalds was captured on CCTV.

Making a Compensation Claim Against McDonalds for Walking into Glass Door

When sufficient evidence to support your claim has been gathered, your solicitor will compose a ‘Letter of Claim’, advising the restaurant´s public liability insurance company that you are making a compensation claim against McDonalds for walking into glass door. The restaurant´s insurers have ninety days to conduct their own investigation into your accident after walking into glass door in McDonalds and advise your solicitor whether they accept liability for their policyholder´s negligence and for you having walked into glass door in McDonalds.

No mention is made of how much compensation for McDonalds walking into glass door injury 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 walking into glass door in McDonalds can be affected by scarring – both physical and psychological – which may not yet have manifested. Only when your solicitor is satisfied that the full consequences of your McDonalds injury after walking into glass door are known will he or she enter into negotiations with the restaurant´s insurers to agree an appropriate compensation settlement.

Children´s Claims for a McDonalds Injury After Walking into Glass Door

If your child has walked into glass door in McDonalds, he or she will have to be represented by you or another parent or a guardian acting as a ‘litigation friend’ in order to make a compensation claim for an accident after walking into glass door in McDonalds – as minors (children under the age of eighteen years) are not permitted by law to make a compensation claim against McDonalds for walking into glass door or instruct a solicitor to do so on their behalf.

‘Litigation friends’ must be prepared to take financial responsibility if claims for walking into glass door in McDonalds are unsuccessful and all settlements of compensation for McDonalds walking into glass door injury must first be approved by a judge before being paid into court funds – where they can be accessed on application to the court if you need to replace money spent on obtaining medical treatment to attend to your child´s injury after having walked into glass door in McDonalds.
