Big Mac injury claimant takes a £1,100 bite from McDonalds

McDonalds have paid over £1,000 accident compensation to a man from Cambridge after he was injured by a piece of metal that had ended up in his quarter-pounder.

Kevin Smith’s meal at the McDonalds restaurant was brought to a sudden and painful halt when he unwittingly bit down onto a small piece of aluminium lurking in his burger.  The result was a broken tooth and numerous trips to the dentist.

Mr Smith said that he felt he had been unlucky but was concerned that if a child had come across the metal piece it could have had more serious consequences.

McDonalds confirmed an incident had taken place at its Cambridge branch and that the company had performed a thorough investigation, which had now been successfully resolved with the complainant.
