Schoolgirl left with second degree burns from KFC gravy

A Manchester schoolgirl was left with second degree burns after spilling ‘boiling hot’ gravy on her hand as she ate at KFC with her family.

The schoolgirl was out with her family as a treat for a good school report when the accident occurred. The schoolgirl was sat eating her food when she reached for the pot of gravy to remove the lid. The girl’s mum described how the pot was too hot for her daughter to grab and as she let it go, the contents spilt out onto her had, causing second degree burns.

The injured schoolgirl was taken to the hospital after her hand began to blister within minutes. Doctors had to remove a top layer of skin to burst the blisters before they were able to bandage the hand.

Following her accident, the girl had several follow-up appointments and was unable to participate in P.E. and struggled with various other activities. The girl has not been left with any lasting injuries.

If you have suffered an injury from a similar incident that was not your fault, you may be able to make a claim. We act for a number of clients who have suffered similar related injuries and it is important that you get independent expert legal advice, preferably as soon as possible from our specialist lawyers.



As soon as Actons took over my case it was made so straight forward and easy to understand. All the information I needed was provided and I was kept informed every step of the way. I would like to thank Actons for their fantastic help with my claim.

Mr P F

I used Actons solicitors when I had an accident, I was highly satisfied with the work on the case they did I was put at ease from start to finish, they explained everything that was going on and advised me what I had to do. I would definitely use them again if need be.
