    Can I claim for an accident as a baker?

    It may come as a surprise to some people that accidents can happen in bakeries, which is one of the reasons why you might be wondering whether you can claim for an accident as a baker. If someone has had an accident that was the fault of someone else, they should definitely pursue their legal right to make a personal injury claim. Although it may seem that a serious injury may not happen to a baker, an accident while working in kitchens or bakeries is surprisingly common.

    One of the most common accidents that can happen in the bakery environment is that of a trip, slip or fall on a floor that is slippery and unmarked. This is particularly dangerous in the working environment of a bakery because of the small amount of space in many bakeries, and when a person falls in a small area they could bang their head on any surrounding cupboards or ovens. It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that all health and safety guidelines are strictly adhered to, and that includes making sure that any slippery floors are clearly marked with a warning sign that is in full view for the workers to see.

    Case study

    A particular case of a baker in Leeds who fell on the build-up of ice on the floor of a walk-in freezer tells how the baker was put on light duties following 10 weeks off work to recover from his accident. This was so that the baker could recover from his injuries without the aggravation of pressurised work slowing down the recovery process. The lighter duties also meant lower pay for the baker, who fell into debt with mortgage arrears and was on the brink of losing his house. After making his claim he was awarded enough from his compensation claim to cover the loss of earnings that his accident had caused. The company was also ordered to address the problem with the walk-in freezer, in order to prevent any further accidents from slipping on the freezer floor.
