Getting a new kitchen fitted is an exciting time, but what about for those who work fitting your new kitchen? Kitchen fitters are usually responsible for making and fitting new cabinets and worktops and the job can be incredibly physical, taking out the old kitchen before fitting the new one. Injured kitchen fitters might not be able to carry out their job, which is why they should consider claiming kitchen fitter injury compensation if they have been injured at work. With a recommendation from our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen, and years of industry experience, you can trust Accident Advice Helpline to handle your claim for personal injury compensation.
What could happen to cause kitchen fitter injuries?
Kitchen fitters could be injured in a variety of different situations, for example:
- Injuries caused by faulty power tools such as lacerations, burns or electrocution
- Crush injuries and broken bones from dropping worktops or units on feet or hands.
- Objects falling from height (or tools) causing head injuries
- Lifting injuries from lifting heavy units or worktops
- Slip, trip or fall over uneven flooring or debris left lying around
If you’re a kitchen fitter who has been injured at work, you’ll know it isn’t always easy to tell who is to blame for your accident. If there were no witnesses, you’ll have to ask yourself if your employer has been negligent and if there was more they could have done to prevent your injuries. It might be that they failed to maintain power tools to a safe standard, leading to your accident – in this case they could be ordered to pay you kitchen fitter injury compensation.
