    Personal Injury Solicitors in East Staffordshire

    Did you know that, if you get injured in an accident that was caused by someone else, you could claim compensation? An accident lawyer in East Staffordshire at Accident Advice Helpline could take on your case, and if you win, you will receive a payout.

    All our personal injury solicitors work on a ‘no win, no fee*’ basis, to give all our clients that little extra peace of mind – because stress is the last thing you need when you’ve been in an accident and you’re trying your best to recover.

    Kitchen accidents

    The kitchen is one place in which you might end up suffering injuries as a result of someone else’s actions or negligence – and it can happen at home, or in the kitchenette at work. You’re also at risk of injury if you work as a chef or cook, or you do any kind of work in a professional kitchen.

    How can an accident lawyer in East Staffordshire help?

    If you’re eligible to claim, your accident lawyer in East Staffordshire will deal with agencies such as insurers on your behalf, with the object of getting you a payout.

    They can do this because someone else is at fault. If it happened at home, it could be because of a faulty product that you use, such as an electric whisk. If at work, it might be something similar, or it could be something else entirely – but your employer could still be at fault, because they have a duty to provide you with a safe working environment.

    Avoiding accidents in the kitchen

    There are many kinds of accident that could happen. Above, we mentioned injury from faulty products, so allow us to provide you with some tips on using electrical equipment safely in the kitchen – especially at work.

    1) Has your appliance been PAT tested? If not, don’t use it – and report it to your manager so that it can be tested or a replacement item (which has been tested) can be supplied.

    2) What condition is the cable in? If it has any cuts, or it is exposing any wires under the plastic outer layer, don’t use it. Again, tell your manager so that the situation can be rectified.

    3) Plug the appliance into the socket. Avoid using adaptors, because the circuit might get overloaded.

    4) Don’t use the electrical appliance near the sink. As you may remember from school, water and electricity don’t mix.
