Kitchens are dangerous places. Just think about what happens in your own kitchen at home when you’re cooking dinner:
- Gas rings are turned on
- Pans are full of boiling water or fat
- Water, oil or other liquids may be spilt on the floor
- Electrical appliances are used
This could be a recipe for disaster – accidents can happen, and they can lead to injuries. Some accidents are just that – incidents that could not have been foreseen, and for which no one is to blame. But other accidents can be someone else’s fault, and if that’s the case, you could claim compensation through an accident lawyer in East Sussex.
What kinds of accident happen in the kitchen?
There are many different things that can occur, including:
- Burns and scalds (from hot fat or boiling water)
- Fires (in the oven or on the hob)
- Slips and falls (if any liquid is spilt on the floor)
- Trips (from obstructions)
- Electric shocks (from faulty appliances)
- Cuts (from using knives)
If any of the above happened to you, and it wasn’t your fault that you got injured, you could make a claim.
For example, you might be at work in a professional kitchen and you slip and fall, breaking your ankle. This means you cannot return to work for a while, and you lose money. But it wouldn’t have happened if your employer had ensured your safety.
