Working in a restaurant either as waiting staff, a host or behind the bar can be a busy, fast-paced job. You’re often expected to multi-task, taking orders from customers, cleaning, serving behind the bar and a whole host of other tasks which could see you rushed off your feet. Accidents have the potential to happen at any time in a restaurant, whether you work there or are enjoying a meal out with friends and family. If your accident was somebody else’s fault, why not take the 30-second test on Accident Advice Helpline’s website, to see how much compensation you could be entitled to claim?
Those working in a restaurant could be injured in any of the following ways:
- Injuries caused by defective equipment such as broken plates or glasses or a faulty till
- Slip, trip or fall injuries – for example slipping on spilt food or drink
- Food poisoning from food prepared and consumed at work
- Burns and scalds from spilling hot food or drink
If you’re dining out at a restaurant, you could be burned or scalded if the waiter or another member of staff spills hot food or drink on you, or you could be injured in a slip or trip accident, which could leave you with broken bones. Lacerations from broken glasses or defective chairs and tables can also occur. Whether you’re an employee or a customer, you could make a claim if you believe the restaurant has been negligent – and Accident Advice Helpline can help you get the compensation you deserve. Because our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, anybody can afford to make a claim with us. And if your accident has led to time off work and loss of earnings, we’ll take this into account when we work out your personal injury settlement.
