McDonald’s Accident Claims
As a company, McDonald’s has a duty of care towards all their staff and customers, whether directly employed, agency workers or dining at the restaurant. This means that they have to provide a safe and suitable public space and working environment. If they fail to follow health and safety procedures and this causes an accident, they could be held legally liable for any injuries sustained and have to pay the claimant compensation for their injuries.
Our clients often receive compensation pay-outs for restaurant injuries. What’s more, we offer every client a no win no fee service too, so you don’t have to take any financial risks by paying upfront to make your claim.
If you do have legitimate grounds on which to make an accident or work injury claim, we may be able to give you an estimate of how much compensation your injuries could be worth.
Types of Injuries

- Slips, trips and falls from spillages.
- Door injuries.
- Car park injuries.
- Kitchen injuries from hot oil or equipment.
- Food health and hygiene illnesses.
- Manual handling injuries.
- Racking and storage injuries.
- Objects falling – if boxes and equipment are stored on high shelves and not properly packed away, they can fall, causing injuries.
- Exposure to harmful substances – harmful chemicals can be used in warehouses, either for cleaning or other purposes.
Some of the common injuries that might occur include:
- Crush Injuries – from falling objects, racking and doors.
- Back Injuries – due to manual handling accidents and slips, trips or falls.
- Chemical burns – from employers not providing the right Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and training.
