Working in a kitchen carries many risks. If you’re a chef or your job involves preparing food or carrying dishes to and from a kitchen, you may be at risk of injury. Every employer in the UK has a duty to try and prevent workplace accidents. If you’ve been injured at work, for example, you sustained eye injuries caused by grease splashes in the kitchen, you may be eligible for compensation. If you’ve been involved in an accident at work, and you weren’t at fault, why not give Accident Advice Helpline a call and see how they could help you make a claim?
Can I claim compensation for eye injuries caused by grease splashes?
The kitchen can be a very dangerous place. If you work in a commercial or privately owned kitchen, you should be aware of the risks of injuries, such as eye injuries caused by grease splashes, cuts caused by sharp knives, and slips, trips and falls. If you have been injured at work, and you were not at fault, you may be able to claim work injury compensation.
To claim compensation for any accident, you must be able to prove that you were not liable for your injuries. If you plan to make a claim against your employer, the evidence you provide should show that their negligence resulted in your injuries. If you have sustained eye injuries, for example, as a result of using faulty frying equipment or your employer failed to provide you with the relevant safety gear, call Accident Advice Helpline today. Grease splashes can damage the cornea, which may result in scarring.
