KFC has a duty of care to its customers and there are regulations in place to protect diners from injury. If you have been injured in a KFC restaurant or drive through you may have cause to make an injury compensation claim.


There are a number of different kinds of accidents that might occur. Some of the most common incidents which result in claims against KFC include:

  • Slips, trips, or falls, caused by, for instance, loose items on the floor, spillages or defective flooring. These accidents can cause bruising, cuts, scrapes, fractured or broken bones, head injuries.
  • Burns from hot food or drink or cooking appliances.
  • Cuts from kitchen utensils.
  • Food poisoning or illnesses caused by badly cooked food or food that is of bad quality or has not been stored or prepared properly.
  • Falling downstairs.


Over 24,000 people are employed by KFC, either working within one of their restaurants, warehouses, or in its head office. Like all employers, KFC is legally obligated to keep its employees safe while they are at work. They must put measures in place in order to do so. If you have been injured while working for KFC because your employer has failed to provide you with a safe working environment you may be able to claim accident at work compensation.

How does the claims process work?

Once we have carried out an initial consultation, we will take care of the paperwork required.   A letter will be sent to you following an initial consultation with your solicitor. This will be a summary of the discussion you had and will confirm that they are happy to take on your case. It will highlight who will be your contact and estimate how long the process will take. The letter will also detail how you will be funding the case and an estimate of costs. If you need to provide any further information this will be included.   A letter will be sent to the defendant, providing details of the accident. The defendant has a fixed period to reply. In their reply, they must state if they are denying or accepting liability. If they do accept liability, your solicitor will endeavor to settle the case out of court.
