Student Awarded Compensation* for Burn obtained from Chinese Delivery

Student Awarded Compensation for Burn obtained from Chinese Delivery

A student was awarded approximately €10,000 after the Circuit Court heard that he received a scalding on his hand from sauce provided with a takeaway meal he purchased from a Chinese take away.

John Patrick Starrs of Tallaght, Dublin, brought his claim for compensation against the Kings Garden Chinese restaurant on Main Street, Tallaght.

The curry sauce provided with the meal had leaked from the polystyrene cup it had been packaged in, and the heat from the sauce gave Mr Starrs a severe burn to the back of his hand. After attending with his GP the next day, Mr Starrs was referred to hospital where his blisters had to be treated.

The case was brought on the grounds that the restaurant had been negligent in providing him with a defective cup. The Court found in his favour however did reduce the award to account for the contributory negligence of Mr Starrs by not looking into the bag before he placed his hand inside.
