Have you been injured in an accident at work and are looking to claim accident at work compensation in Newbridge? Getting a job as a waiter or waitress at a food service business won’t earn you a fortune, but it can be a great way to earn a few quid. If you have experience of working in a waiting role, you’ll typically always be able to find work, even in most cases when the economy is not doing so well. This makes the job attractive to students and other people who need to earn some money, while their ultimate goal is to develop a career in another industry.
The fact that nobody really wants to do this sort of work for the medium term, let alone for the rest of their life, means that sometimes food service workers do not take their jobs as seriously as they perhaps should. This might mean a blasé attitude towards their duties, or coming in for work a little the worse for wear after a night out.
Obviously, this will not reflect well on the eatery they are working for, but it could cause other problems. Serving hot food and drinks when not entirely on the ball could result in a customer being injured in an accident, that was not their fault.
If you were to be injured in an accident that was not your fault as a result of an accident that came about due to the negligence of a food service worker, there will be a chance that you might well be able to take some form of no-win, no-fee* personal injury action against the business in question, in an effort to win yourself an accident at work compensation in Newbridge pay-out.
