    Personal Injury Solicitors in Wandsworth

    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?

    Contact an accident lawyer in Wandsworth

    The first step is to make a phone call to Accident Advice Helpline and speak to an adviser. The adviser will guide you through the process of claiming, and if you’re eligible to claim, they will pass your case details to our legal team so that an accident lawyer in Wandsworth can get to work.

    Our contact details are as follows:

    • Dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline
    • Dial 0333 500 0993 from a mobile
    • Text “claim365” to 88010 and await a call

    It’s a 24/7 hotline, so ring whenever you like. If no one answers, leave a message and you will get a call from an adviser as soon as possible.

    ‘No win, no fee*’ service

    For extra peace of mind, all our personal injury solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline work on a no win no fee* basis. That’s because there’s no guarantee that you will win your case.

    However, you can rest assured that your solicitor’s objective, at all times, will be to secure you a settlement. If you win, you will receive a payout, which consists of a sum of money for the accident and a sum for the expenses you have incurred.

    Why not call our hotline now and get started? We look forward to helping you to get the compensation you deserve.
