If you find yourself in need of accident legal advice in Bury for a burn or scald injury you’ve suffered through no fault of your own, we here at Accident Advice Helpline offer our services. We are one of the top injury claim specialists here in the UK and come highly recommended by the one and only Dame Esther Rantzen.
The first thing you need to be aware of before you can consider raising a personal injury compensation claim, (whether it’s for a burn or scald injury or any other type of injury for that matter), is that the blame for the incident or the circumstances in which injury was sustained must be attributable to someone other than you.
Burn, scald and laceration injuries
Burn, scald and laceration injuries are common in the catering industry. Commercial kitchens wherever they might be, (in schools, hotels, or restaurants example), are usually places where staff are working all-out under pressure. If any trip hazards are left in place on the floor and someone trips and falls, the consequences can be serious, especially if the victim was carrying a pan full of boiling water, or if that victim fell onto a hot surface.
Knives and other cutting implements also constitute hazards in working kitchens and it’s important that kitchen staff are properly trained in the storage and use of any cutting tools.
A burn, scald or laceration injury can cause serious lasting damage such as:
- Damage to skin
- Damage to nerves
- Damage to the tendons
- Damage to ligaments
- Damage to muscles
These types of injuries can result in permanent cosmetic damage, limitation of movement, and in worst-case scenarios, death.
Getting accident legal advice in Bury from Accident Advice Helpline
If you’ve been seriously injured in a kitchen incident, you believe your employer to be responsible, and you’d like expert accident legal advice in Bury, you can get it from us here at Accident Advice Helpline. Before you decide to commit yourself to using our services, you can browse through this website where you will find plenty of useful information and advice. You can also take our 30-second test.
Our 30-second test has been designed for two purposes. In the first place, it will check out whether or not you have a valid claim in principle. It does this by evaluating the answers to four questions that the test poses. If your potential claim looks as though it will be valid, you will then be given an estimate of how much compensation you could be awarded for your injury.
