Making a kitchen staff injury claim is common – after all, commercial kitchens are not the safest places in the world. You could easily be injured using a knife, oven or any other piece of equipment there. Whenever you start work in a place like a commercial kitchen, you should be given full training on any piece of equipment that you are expected to use, even if you only have to use it once. You should also be given all the details that you need on the health and safety policies that apply to your workplace. For example, there may be a piece of equipment that you are not permitted to use alone, even if you think it is a one-person job. If you are ever left to do something alone but your health and safety department has previously categorised it as a two-person job, then you could be at risk of an accident.
Your employers should also ensure that you have all the PPE that you need in order to be able to do your job safely. This will include items like safety shoes, overalls, hats and hairnets. If any of these items are not provided and you are injured as a result, then you may be in a good position to make a personal injury claim. You can then get the legal help that you need from Accident Advice Helpline.
Why should I call Accident Advice Helpline?
Firstly, you should call because it costs you nothing to find out more about our services. You can ring our free, 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone any time and speak to one of our friendly advisers to find out more about what we can do for you. Secondly, Accident Advice Helpline has the experience in the personal injury field that you need to get you through this difficult time. All of our advisers are fully trained and experienced, and if you decide to pursue your claim you will be in the hands of an experienced personal injury solicitor.
We can also offer you a number of great features with our service, including our ‘no win, no fee*’ policy. There is nothing worse than being hurt through no fault of your own and then having to pay just to get your life back on track. This is why we do not ask you to pay any legal fees when you start your claim. Everyone has the right to justice and we believe that this should be available immediately after you have had your accident – not just when you have managed to save enough money to instruct a solicitor to make a kitchen staff injury claim.
If you have been working in a kitchen and need to take time off to recover from your injuries, will you be entitled to full sick pay? This is unlikely – and if you don’t get it, how do you pay the bills? Financial compensation can be calculated to include loss of earnings and any other expenses that have been incurred as a result. Making a claim could bring you the compensation and help to make life a lot easier.
