Working as a barmaid shouldn’t be a dangerous job – that is if your employer takes health and safety seriously. It’s up to employers to ensure their staff stay safe at work, so whether you are cleaning the bar area, mixing drinks or even serving food to customers, you should be able to do so without the risk of injury at work. But if you have suffered injuries after a workplace accident, claiming barmaid injury compensation doesn’t need to be complicated. Accident Advice Helpline can help you get the compensation you deserve, and our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis.
How have you been injured?
We’ve been in the personal injury industry since 2000 and during that time we’ve helped hundreds of workers to claim barmaid injury compensation. Here are just a few examples of the types of accidents and injuries we’ve handled claims for:
- Slips, trips and falls – slipping on a wet floor, tripping over broken glass and suffering lacerations, falls caused by poor lighting in the bar area
- Lacerations from broken glass – smashed glasses, damaged bottles, spillages on the floor etc.
- Electric shock from faulty electrical appliances such as a vacuum cleaner, till, blender, fridge etc.
- Scalds from somebody spilling hot liquid or drinks
- Food poisoning from eating food prepare in the bar’s kitchen
- Struck by objects falling from height (such as bottles falling off a loose shelf) causing head and facial injuries
- Eye or facial injuries from an exploding or faulty beer pump
If you’ve been injured at work you will probably need to take some time off to recover – in the case of serious injuries such as an eye or facial injury you might need medical treatment and you could even be left permanently scarred, which can affect you psychologically as well as physically.
