Types of accidents
If you work in the catering industry you already know that there are a number of ways you could be injured in an accident. It could be that you have been burnt or scalded as a result of boiling liquids or hot surfaces within the kitchen. You may suffer a slip, trip or fall either in a public area such as the bar or restaurant, or perhaps in the kitchen or store cupboards. You could receive a laceration as a result of exposure to sharp objects or unsafe machinery or equipment.
Whatever the situation, if your accident was not your fault then our solicitors will do all they can to ensure that you have the support needed to make your claim a success.
Our solicitors will work with you to gather all the information and evidence needed to make your case. They will send you to be assessed by an independent medical expert, who will compile a report based on your injuries which will help determine the extent of the financialcompensation that you are likely to be awarded. They will also take into account whether or not you have any existing conditions which are likely to be worsened by your latest accident in Wandsworth.
Your solicitors will then use the law to help demonstrate who was responsible for your accident. For example, if you slipped on a wet patch on the floor, and this was not cleaned up or appropriately signed, your employer will be regarded as being responsible. Your solicitor will be able to demonstrate what duty of care they broke, and why they should be liable.
