Kitchens can be dangerous places – all that hot water, electricity and sharp objects such as knives – and commercial kitchens even more so, if health and safety is not a priority. Working in a hotel kitchen as a chef is a fast-paced role which will definitely keep you busy, so chances are your personal safety is the last thing on your mind. But you could be injured through no fault of your own whilst you’re at work, and if somebody else is to blame, why not claim hotel chef injury compensation?
You may not be the next Gordon Ramsay, but that doesn’t mean you’re not entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings if you’ve been hurt in a workplace accident. Get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline and find out if our lawyers can help you claim hotel chef injury compensation, on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
Hotel chef injuries
Hotel chefs could be injured by sharp knives, pots of boiling water, faulty electrical equipment or even negligent colleagues in the kitchen. For example, you could suffer lacerations whilst working with knives that could lead to the loss of a finger, seriously impacting your career. Somebody could spill boiling water or liquid on you, scalding or burning you and causing permanent scarring. You could suffer burns or an electric shock from a faulty kettle, oven or other kitchen appliance, or perhaps you’ve slipped on food or drink that has been spilled on the floor, suffering a serious back injury that has left you unable to work.
It could be that the kitchen environment is an unsafe one – for example pots and pans stored at height could fall on you if the shelf they’re on is unstable, leading to serious head injuries. In cases like these, your employer could be held liable for your injuries and ordered to pay you personal injury compensation. Accident Advice Helpline has been helping people claim compensation since 2000 and we’re endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen, for our excellent customer service.
