My son 1yr 4 month old , had a waitress's place a coffee mug in front of hI'm in which he pulled down and spilled on his lap. Thankfully he only received superficial burns, but the matter in which the restaurant handless it was in my eyes negligent. She not only placed the one mug that he spilled but had seconds prior placed another mug in front of Jim for which I removed from his reach.

Speaking with restaurant insurance representative now..
Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will be happy to answer your question.I am very sorry about this terrible accident.Can you please tell me if your son received any permanent injuries or scars and also if you incured any expenses as a result of this accident?
No. The doctor said it was all superficial and to just apply ointment for preventive reasons. The huge restaurant did not supply any aid in the accident and do have witnesses along with camera view in restaurant. No expenses though.
Thank you for your follow up.While you can make a demand for compensation to the restaurant and see if they would agree to compensate you for this accident, unfortunately if they do not, you would not have a feasible legal claim against the restaurant despite their negligence as a claim would require for you or your son to suffer actual damages, which does not appear to be the case under the facts you have described.I know this doesn't appear to be fair, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide each JustAnswer.com customer with correct answer, even if the answer is not favorable to the customer.
Aside from the medical point I view, is there a certain # XXXXX I shoul allow if they present a number for all actions just by viewing the recordings and all the facts ?
Thank you for your follow up.There is no specific amount in this type of cases and you can try to negotiate any amount of compensation that might be offered to you by the restaurant, but keep in mind that if you ask for too much or simply make an unreasonable demand and it is denied, you might not be able to pursue your claim any further.
It is very unfortunate that someone has to be severely injured to make someone pay for their actions! I have a brother in a wheel chair that received 2nd degree burns in his thighs and has 12" long scars on his thighs due to their ignorance and he is having to battle them very very hard!!! Thank you
Dear Jorge,I could not agree with you more on this, but I am very happy that your baby was not seriously injured in this accident!Please let me know if you have any related follow up questions and if not, I would really appreciate if you would click on 3 or more stars if you are satisfied with my answer.Bonus and positive feedback are almost appreciated, but are not required.
Is there an easy way of getting back in touch with you??? And I will definitely apply the stars. Thank you...
