If you’ve had an accident as a chef, you may be able to get counselling and other financial compensation for your injuries. Regular counselling can be costly, but you may not have much choice if you were involved in a major incident. Your health may be impacted if you do not go to see a professional counsellor. Give yourself financial peace of mind by checking with Accident Advice Helpline if you can make a chef accident claim that will help you to manage your costs.
How do I know if I can claim for compensation?
If your accident as a chef was caused by someone else, happened in the last three years and you needed medical attention because of it, you could be eligible to claim financial compensation for your injuries. Your accident may have been caused by faulty cooking equipment, an unsafe working environment, other kitchen staff, or perhaps negligence by those meant to look after you. If you were not to blame for it, you have a good chance of claiming compensation for your injuries.
I wasn’t the only one to get hurt – can I still claim?
You should not feel guilty about raising a claim for compensation. Your accident as a chef may have involved your colleagues or other people. It may have been traumatic for others, but this does not mean you should not try to seek compensation for yourself. After all, the others involved in the accident can also do this. If you can show that you were not at fault for the accident you suffered, you could start a legal process through Accident Advice Helpline to claim compensation.
How much could I claim?
How much you could be awarded for your chef accident claim will depend on the circumstances of it. The law takes into account your individual circumstances and will look at your potential loss of earnings, the details of your injury and consider your potential medical fees.
