    Canteen accident claim

    Canteen accident claim

    Making a canteen accident claim is very important if somebody else was responsible for your accident. In a canteen, health and safety should be one of the most important things, but we all know that there are plenty of workplaces where this is a neglected issue. Some people do not seem to notice when there are wet floors that are not clearly marked, when there are things left in walkways and when there are pieces of faulty equipment still in use. Every canteen should have an assigned person who ensures that the facility adheres to health and safety guidelines. If this person has failed in their duties, then accidents may occur.

    What happens then?

    Unfortunately, what could happen is that there may be accidents, and innocent people like you could end up getting hurt as a result. This means that your employers are leaving themselves wide open to a canteen accident claim and there is no reason why you should not make a claim if you are in this position.

    If you have to take time away from work to allow your physical injuries to heal then you could find that at some point during the process you are on statutory sick pay rather than your usual wages. This will obviously represent a significant drop in income and will make it so much harder to pay those bills that will still keep coming in.

    How do I make a claim?

    You can start the process of filing a claim by calling us on our free, 24hour helpline. This will enable you to find out more about the claims process and allow you to decide if you want to proceed. We will need to take some details of your accident and if you have supporting information like witness contact details that would be great too. Once you have decided to put your case into our hands you can relax a little and let us deal with all the legal details.
