    Restaurant accidents: Slips on liquid

    In the day to day world of the industrial kitchen, many liquids are present, including water, cooking oil, olive oil, dish soap, oven degreaser and floor-cleaner. Although most of these liquids are essential in the work place, they pose a huge risk of slips, trips, and falls, and other work-related accidents.

    Claiming for restaurant accidents

    Although the kitchen is the most obvious place that restaurant accidents are likely to happen, it is not the only part of the eatery that can pose a danger. For instance, what if someone spilled water or perhaps gravy on the restaurant floor and it was not cleared up straightaway. This could be very slippy and cause one of the customers to fall and hurt themselves quite badly. It could be even worse if a waiter happens to be walking by with a tray of hot soups that end up falling over other guests who are seated.

    This is why it is imperative that any liquids spilt anywhere in a restaurant are cleared up, or cordoned off, immediately.


    Making a compensation claim

    Accidents can also happen is there is faulty furniture that collapses, or may some food is not stored correctly and victims suffer from food poisoning. There are many different restaurant accidents that can happen, and if you are injured in one that was not your fault, you should be talking to Accident Advice Helpline about making a personal injury compensation claim.
