An accident lawyer in Wandsworth could help you right now if you need to make a claim for an injury you’ve sustained whilst working as a chef – or in any capacity in a professional kitchen.
We’ll tell you all about what to do later, but first, a few things about kitchen accidents – and why you may be able to make a claim against your employer.
Accidents in kitchens
In a kitchen, you are at risk of the following accidents:
- Slips and falls, which may occur because of spillages
- Cuts, because of using knives or other sharp implements
- Trips and falls, because of obstacles
- Scalds, because of hot water, fat, and other liquids
- Burns, which can be from flames and hot metal
- Electrical shock, from appliances
These could happen at home, of course, but a professional kitchen is a highly stressful environment – people are coming in and going out all the time, and there is a lot of pressure to get dishes out to diners.
Claiming against your employer
The reason you could put in a claim against your employer is that, while you’re at work, they are obliged to provide you with a safe environment in which to carry out that work.
They take out employers’ liability insurance policies for the purpose of paying out in cases of claims against them – indeed, this is expected. So why not pursue a claim through an accident lawyer in Wandsworth?
