McDonalds Accident Claims
What Is A McDonalds Accident Claim?
Restaurants such as McDonalds have put millions of pounds into researching the environments that make us most likely to want to eat there, including colourful displays, bright lighting and shiny, clean floors. Unfortunately, these conditions of bright lights combined with hard, smooth floors combined with large numbers of people and the opportunity for a wide variety of spilled liquids can lead to McDonalds accidents. Slips, trips and falls are common in McDonalds and many of these could have been foreseen and prevented. If you have been injured in a McDonalds accident, you are likely to be eligible for compensation.

Compensation For McDonalds Accidents
Every McDonalds accident is unique, and this means that every compensation claim is also unique. The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the severity of your injuries and the impact this has had on your life. There are some common factors in McDonalds accident compensation claims, however.
Compensation claim amounts for all personal injuries (including McDonalds accidents) are divided into two main parts. The first part of the claim is based on the amount of pain and suffering you have experienced. Because this is such a subjective assessment, there are guidelines put forward by the national governing body (the Judicial College). These give a range of amounts that are usually paid out following each specific injury. The ranges can be very wide, however. This is because they are designed to ensure that the exact nature of your injury can be taken into account. Unfortunately, this can make it very difficult for anyone without experience to know where in that range their injury is likely to fall. Our highly trained personal injury claims solicitors have years of experience in making McDonalds accident claims and are able to give you an accurate assessment of where in the range your injury is likely to fall.
The second part of your McDonalds accident compensation claim is the more variable part. This is designed to make sure that you are not left financially worse off as a result of your McDonalds accident. Ideally, this should mean that you are left in the same position as you would have been if your McDonalds accident had not happened. This includes compensating you for the loss of earnings if you are unable to work for a period while you recover, and even for the loss of potential future earnings if your injuries mean that you are unable to return to your former line of work. Additionally, you can claim for any expenses you might have incurred as a result of what happened to you, including any additional transportation costs, care you may have had to pay for and rehabilitation help that you have needed to access privately, such as physiotherapy. In the case of very serious injuries, you may also be able to claim for modifications to your home and vehicle to allow you get your life back as close as possible to where it was before.
Working with our dedicated team of McDonalds accident claims specialists means that you can rest assured that your compensation claim includes all aspects of your financial losses as a result of your McDonalds accident and that you are making the most appropriate compensation claim for your personal circumstances.
How Long Does It Take To Make A McDonalds Accident Claim?
McDonalds accident compensation claims can take very different amounts of time to complete, which reflects the unique nature of each case. We appreciate that you shouldn’t have to wait for the compensation you deserve, so we work tirelessly to ensure that you get the payment you need to put your McDonalds accident behind you as quickly as possible.
Some cases can be resolved in a matter of just a few weeks or months. These tend to be the easier claims to process, where the other party does not try to claim that the accident wasn’t their fault and where they are keen to agree the compensation amount as quickly as possible. Less severe injuries also tend to be quicker to resolve, as the amounts of money involved are smaller and the other party is less likely to want to put in the additional effort to argue about how much you deserve.
Complicated personal injury claims include those which involve multiple people who are all partially responsible for what happened, as well as those with very serious injuries. Cases like that will usually take far longer to be resolved than those which are straightforward. If the claim has to be decided in court, the delays can increase further.
Is No Win No Fee Available For A McDonalds Accident Compensation Claim?
Because we know that the period following a McDonalds accident can be financially very difficult, we offer our services on a no win no fee basis to almost all of our clients. This means that you won’t need to find the money to pay for legal fees to start your McDonalds accident compensation claim.
Our no win no fee agreements mean that you are able to instruct us to work on your behalf, without making any payments up front. We will only take payment once you have received the compensation payment you are entitled to. If we are unable to get you the compensation you deserve, you won’t owe us a penny. Even more importantly, our fees are set as a percentage of your payment, meaning that you know exactly how much you will need to pay before accepting any offer of compensation and you will always receive the majority of your compensation.
In a few situations, we are unable to work on a no win no fee basis. If you are unlucky enough to fall into this rare category, we will explain this straight away, and we will discuss the range of alternative funding options open to you to make sure that you can still get the legal help you need at a price that you can afford.

Do I Have A Time Limit For Making A McDonalds Accident Compensation Claim?
Compensation claims for McDonalds accident should be made as soon as possible after the accident or injury that led to them. Except in extremely exceptional circumstances, all claims should be made within 2 years of the accident. If you are coming close to the two year time limit, it is essential that you contact our personal injury solicitors as soon as possible.
There can sometimes be an advantage in waiting a little while before making a McDonalds accident compensation claim. Some injuries may take a while to fully appear or they may take far longer than expected to heal. It is always worth having conversations with our personal injury specialists as early as possible, however, as this gives you the best chance of forming a strong case and getting the compensation you deserve.
How A McDonalds Accident Compensation Claim Works
The process of making a McDonalds accident compensation claim is the same for almost all types of personal injury.
The first thing to do is to make sure that you have the help of a personal injury claims solicitor. Our team of experienced personal injury claims specialists are available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have about your McDonalds accident compensation claim. You can call us or claim online and we will call you back at a time convenient to you.
Once you have asked us to act on your behalf, we will write to the person responsible for your McDonalds accident. We will inform them that you are making a personal injury compensation claim, and that you believe that they were at fault. We will ask them to accept that they were to blame (this is called accepting liability).
If the other party refuses to accept that they were to blame in your accident, we will find and send evidence to support your claim. This might include photographs of the location in which your accident took place, a copy of the company’s accident book, witness statements and anything else that might be relevant. For workplace accidents in particular, it is very unusual for liability to be disputed for long.
When liability has been agreed, we are then able to begin negotiations to agree the compensation amount that you will agree. The other side will often put forward a ‘lowball’ offer, which is far less than you are entitled to, in the hope that you will either accept it, or that you will reduce your expectations of the amount you are likely to accept. Our years of experience mean that we are able to identify these kinds of techniques and make sure that you don’t fall for them. Although we will offer you guidance, we will always follow your lead. We will notify you of every offer that is made (even those we think you should reject) and the final decision over whether to accept or reject any offer will always be yours.
In the unusual situation that it is not possible to reach agreement, either because the other party refuses to accept that they are liable, or because it is not possible to find a compensation amount that both parties will accept, it may be necessary to go to court to resolve your personal injury compensation claim. This is very rare, and we will support you throughout the process if it does turn out to be necessary.

Can I Claim Compensation For The McDonalds Accident I Suffered?
If you have suffered a McDonalds accident, you may not be sure whether you are able to claim compensation or not. Many of our clients tell us that they wondered the same thing. The requirements for making a McDonalds accident compensation claim are very simple and most people are eligible.
The most basic requirement for making a McDonalds accident compensation claim is that you must have suffered a McDonalds accident and had some form of damage or loss as a result. Your injury could be either physical or mental, but you cannot make a compensation claim if you have not experienced any negative consequences from your McDonalds accident. Although experiencing a near miss can be alarming, you are only able to claim for accidents that actually happened, not those which you narrowly avoided.
It is also vital that there is someone who is at fault in your McDonalds accident. In order to make a McDonalds accident compensation claim, you must claim against someone, and this person or organisation must have had some form of responsibility towards you. If your accident or injury took place at work, your employer will almost certainly be in this position, as they have a statutory duty of care, meaning that they have a legal requirement to think about your health and safety and to take all appropriate measures to keep you safe.
It is also necessary that your accident or injury is something that the other party could have reasonably predicted or anticipated, if they had given sufficient thought to health and safety concerns. This is not the same as saying that they must have known that it would happen. Merely that they could have realised that this was possible, if they had thought carefully enough.
The final requirement is that the other party must have failed to take sufficient steps to protect your safety. This doesn’t mean that you can’t claim unless they did nothing. You are still able to make a compensation claim if the measures they put in place were inadequate.
If you have experienced a McDonalds accident and you believe that someone else was to blame, we want to help you get the compensation you deserve. Call us or claim online today and we will arrange a free call back at a time to suit you. Our McDonalds accident specialists are here to help.
What Should You Do After Your McDonalds Accident?
It is absolutely vital that the first thing you do following your McDonalds accident is to protect yourself. Make sure that you are safe from further harm and that you have access to the medical assistance that you need as an absolute priority. Once this has been done, there are a few additional steps you may wish to take to help with your McDonalds accident compensation claim.
It is vital that you have a clear and consistent memory of what happened before, during and after your McDonalds accident. This means that we need to have as many details as possible. Because you never know what the person who was responsible for your McDonalds accident is likely to say in their defence, you will want to have all the details to hand, even ones that may seem irrelevant. In order to help you with this. We advise that you write down everything you can remember, as soon as possible after your McDonalds accident. This should include all details that you think are relevant, especially focusing on anything that made your McDonalds accident more likely.
It is also important that you try to get the names and contact details of anyone who witnessed your McDonalds accident. You are welcome to get them to write down what they have seen, if this is simple to arrange, but if we have their names and contact information, we are able to do this for you at a later date if needed.
Photographs or videos of the place where your McDonalds accident happened can also be very helpful, especially if you are able to highlight anything that made the area unsafe and made your McDonalds accident more likely. Obviously, it is essential that you are careful when trying to obtain pictures and that you don’t put yourself at risk to get them.
These are all things that can make it easier to make a McDonalds accident compensation claim. If any of these are difficult for you, please don’t worry. Our dedicated team of personal injury claims specialists are available 24 hours a day to help you. Call us or claim online now.
