Whether you can claim if you are burnt whilst using a coffee machine at work depends on the circumstances.
Burnt whilst using a coffee machine at work
You may, for instance, qualify for compensation if you were burnt whilst using a coffee machine at work because the machine was defective. You could also be entitled to compensation if, for instance:
- Your work involves using a coffee machine, but you were not trained properly in the safe use of the machine
- Someone else caused you to trip or slip and subsequently get burnt by knocking over a coffee machine
In short, you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim if you were burnt whilst using a coffee machine at work through no fault of your own.
When and how to claim
Compensation claims must be initiated within three years of the date you sustained your injury. It is, therefore, imperative to get compensation advice and enlist the help of a skilled, experienced injury solicitor as soon after your coffee machine accident as possible.
