The kitchen is perhaps the most important room in the house. After all, we need food and water, and most of us get drinking water from the kitchen sink tap; we also prepare food in the kitchen, whether it’s a simple salad or sandwich, or a full three-course meal.
A dangerous place
The kitchen is also a place that leads many people to seek the services of an accident solicitor in Motherwell. Why? It’s so easy to get injured in the kitchen.
Think about the hazards that are present. There are numerous risks. Here are some examples:
1) Slips – water spilt on the floor
2) Trips – an uneven floor surface or a hole in the carpet or lino
3) Burns – gas or electric hobs and ovens
4) Scalds – hot water or boiling oil (e.g. chip pans)
5) Cuts – sharp knives
That’s not all, either. You might be injured because you use a product that is faulty. A blade on an electric carving knife might be loose, for example, or a whisk attachment might not be correctly fitted.
What to do if you get injured in the kitchen
Kitchen injuries may require urgent medical attention. If an ambulance is needed, call one; if not, go to the A&E department at hospital as soon as you can. If the injury isn’t serious enough to warrant a hospital visit, make sure you see your GP as soon as possible.
When you’re out of danger and getting on with your recovery, why not make a compensation claim through an accident solicitor in Motherwell? If you have been injured by defective tools or equipment you have just bought, you could receive a payout, which will really help you.
