    Brentwood No Win No Fee* Compensation

    Brentwood ‘No Win, No Fee*’ Compensation

    Many different professions can be seen as dangerous work, but, perhaps, one that is not seen as such is the food service. However, waiters, chefs and other kitchen staff are surrounded by potential hazards throughout their day, whether it be hot food or liquid, dangerous equipment, such as knives, or ovens and open flames, injuries are just waiting to happen. If you have been injured in such an accident and it wasn’t your fault, then there’s no harm in making a Brentwood no win no fee* compensation claim to see what our team of in house solicitors might be able to do for you.

    Common Accidents and Injuries

    There are many different injuries that chefs, waiters and kitchen workers are at risk from in their daily work, but these are the most common:

    • Burns and Scolds. This is perhaps the type of injury that most workers in a kitchen environment are at risk of. These could be cause by hot surfaces, such as baking trays, hot food or liquid, or even directly from an oven or flame. These can vary in their severity, from first degree, to the life changing third degree burns.
    • With so many sharp objects being necessary to the work, the risk of serious cuts and lacerations is high in kitchen work. Whether it be a chef using an object such as a knife, or someone accidentally being exposed to one, through its improper disposal, for example, these injuries, though they could be minor, could cause serious trauma, both mental and physical if infection is a result.
    • Slips, trips and falls. In such busy environments such as kitchens and restaurants, slips, trips and falls are common occurrences. Whether it be because food or liquid has been spilt, or objects have been left in hazardous places, these accidents can cause serious injuries, from bruises and lacerations, to broken bones and even brain and spinal injuries.

    Whatever the injury, if the accident was cause by the negligence of others, then you have the right to make a Brentwood ‘no win, no fee*’ compensation claim.
