    How to claim hospitality industry injury compensation


    Do you work in the hospitality industry? Whether you’re employed at a hotel as a housekeeper or chef, work in a restaurant as a waiter or bar staff or are a glass collector at a pub, you’re part of an industry that employs a wide range of people in different roles. Employers take responsibility for the safety of their staff whilst they’re at work, and this means that if you are injured whilst at work in a hospitality role, you could be eligible to claim hospitality industry injury compensation. Let Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury lawyers handle your claim on a 100% no win, no fee basis – we’ve been helping people just like you since 2000.

    Hospitality industry injuries

    Because the hospitality industry covers such a wide variety of roles, there are many different types of accidents which could happen (and could leave you injured) – but here are just a few examples of accidents which could lead to a hospitality industry injury compensation claim:

    • Housekeepers injured after slipping on a wet floor, cutting themselves on broken glass in a guest bedroom or suffering electric shock from faulty electrical cleaning equipment (such as a vacuum cleaner)
    • Hotel chefs injured after faulty kitchen appliances explode, colleagues spill hot liquid on them or they injure themselves with a knife
    • Hotel porters suffering manual handling injuries from lifting heavy luggage without the proper training and equipment
    • Waiting and bar staff injured after slipping or tripping, cutting themselves on broken glass or crockery or burns/scalds from hot food and drink

    Whether you work as a chef in a Michelin-starred restaurant or are employed as a housekeeping assistant in a budget chain hotel, you’re entitled to one thing – to stay safe at work. If your employer has failed to keep you safe at work, you could be left suffering from injuries ranging from a sprained ankle to serious head injuries that could impact the rest of your life.
