Can I claim for an accident in a canteen?

One of the most common questions that we are asked is, ‘Can I claim for an accident in a canteen?’ The answer is often yes. We know that canteens are actually quite dangerous places and accidents happen in them all the time. There are many risks when you are working in or visiting a canteen and you need to know that in most cases the risk should not actually be there. Somebody should be making sure that the knives are safe to use, that there is a ‘wet floor’ sign when one is needed and that there is nothing left in a walkway that can be fallen over.

The problem comes when someone is not doing his or her job properly. Unfortunately, this happens more often than it should and as a result somebody could get hurt. In this case that person is you. You need to know that your accident in a canteen could have been prevented and for this reason you should make a personal injury claim.

How can I make a claim?

Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm established to deal only with personal injury cases, so when you need legal assistance in matters like this it makes sense to call us. We have a team of advisors; a free helpline, many personal injury specialist solicitors, and we can see your claim through from start to finish. All you have to do is give us the details of your accident and we will use this information to work out if you have valid grounds for a personal injury claim.

If you do qualify to make a personal injury claim then you need to decide if you want to go ahead. Making a personal injury claim against your employer means that you are not claiming against an individual but against their liability insurance and your advisor at Accident Advice Helpline will be able to explain this to you. You do not have to worry that an individual will be hit financially by your claim – all companies and organisations need to have liability insurance.

Why Accident Advice Helpline?

Did anybody tell you that we offer no win, no fee* as part of our services? This is really important because there is no legal aid any more for this type of case. Accident Advice Helpline decided that this situation was unfair and we are concerned that many people who have the right to make a personal injury claim are choosing not to because they believe that they cannot afford legal fees. Our no win, no fee* policy solves that problem, as there are no upfront fees for you to deal with.

With all this in mind, taking legal action is not going to be half as stressful as you might think. We will be able to take the stress and worry off you and allow you to get on with the important business of recovering from your injuries. Call us today on 0800 689 0500 and find out if we can help you make a claim for an accident in a canteen.
