If you are looking at claims against KFC then we may be able to help. With over 900 restaurants across the UK, KFC has a huge presence on the high street. Like all other restaurants, KFC is legally obliged to ensure the health and safety of its customers and staff. The company must adhere to its health and safety responsibilities.
When it fails to do so, it can find itself liable to KFC injury compensation claims. If the company or its employees are negligent towards their duty of care towards the public and this leads to an injury, victims of KFC accidents can claim compensation.
If you have been injured while eating or working in any of their restaurants, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
For a no-obligation initial discussion about your circumstances and to find out whether you have a claim, please feel free to call us on 0800 808 9740 or get in touch online.
Accidents in KFC
KFC has a duty of care to its customers and there are regulations in place to protect diners from injury. KFC should take reasonable precautions to reduce the risk of an accident happening. If there are any hazards in its stores, the company should prevent customers from coming in contact with these hazards. It should also ensure that its stores are well-maintained and fit for purpose.
Also, KFC staff should be properly trained in identifying and reacting to hazards within the restaurants. For instance, if there has been a spillage, they should erect a wet floor sign, alerting customers to the spillage and the risk it might pose.
If KFC has failed in its duty to keep you safe while you are in the restaurant and you become injured as a result, you may have cause to make an injury compensation claim.
Common types of accidents at KFC
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:

Injured while working for KFC
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.
Claims against KFC
If you are injured as a customer or employee, there are some steps you should take if you are considering making a personal injury claim.
When making any kind of accident claim, it is essential that you have a specialist on your side. You have just three years from the date of your accident in which to make a claim. Because of this, you must begin the legal process as soon as possible. If you are a minor or would like to claim on behalf of a child, the three-year timeframe begins on the date of their eighteenth birthday.
The amount of compensation that you are awarded for your KFC injury is unique and it will be based upon the specific circumstances surrounding your case. The amount of compensation that you are awarded will be determined by two categories: general damages and special damages.
General damages refer to the physical and emotional damage caused by your injuries. In the simplest terms, it refers to compensation for pain and suffering. This type of compensation also covers any losses of amenity. Compensation will be awarded based upon the severity of these factors, understanding that the higher the severity of your complications, the worse the pain/suffering is.

Special damages compensation refers to compensation that covers the financial losses and expenses incurred as a result of an accident or medical negligence. Special damages could help to reclaim a loss of income if you have been unable to work due to your injuries. Similarly, if you have had to pay to go a medical appointment or if you had to pay to travel to a medical appointment, you could be able to claim these medical costs back.
