Have you had an accident in the kitchen? It’s quite a risky place, and we’ve all found ourselves with a cut when a knife slips, or a burn from touching a hot tray out of the oven, at one time or another. We can help if you’ve had workplace or construction site accidents in West Yorkshire.
But if you work in a kitchen for a living, a minor accident could put you out of action for a while – and if you have a big accident and get injured, you could be off work for a long time.
If you’re a chef, or you work in some other capacity in a kitchen, did you know that you could claim compensation against your employer? An accident lawyer could help you to do this – and it’s easy to get started.
Why you could claim after construction site accidents in West Yorkshire
Employers are legally obliged to provide their employees with safe working conditions. You can expect risk while you work – after all, nothing is really risk free, in any line of work. But risk can, and should, be managed. You don’t go to work expecting to get injured – and if you do get injured, you can make a claim.
Your employer should have employers’ liability insurance, which exists specifically to cover the costs of payouts to employees who have made a claim. That’s why you needn’t worry about costing your employer money.
You shouldn’t worry about being treated badly upon your return, or getting the sack, either. This would be illegal.
Contact an accident lawyer
To get started with your claim through an accident lawyer dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. This will get you through to an advisor, who will listen carefully to what you tell them.
Alternatively, text “claim365” to 88010 and someone will call you back.
If you’re eligible to claim, your adviser will pass your details to an accident lawyer in West Yorkshire on our ‘no win, no fee’ legal team. The lawyer will then get to work on your case as soon as possible.
If you win your case, you will receive a payout. This payout will comprise of two elements:
- A sum for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity experienced
- A sum to reimburse you for your expenses and losses
What you can do to help
It’s a good idea to hang on to your receipts for any payments to home helps, childminders, taxi drivers, and chemists (for prescriptions). Basically, if you wouldn’t normally need something, keep the receipt for it.
You will also have to attend an additional medical assessment as part of your claim. But don’t worry – you probably won’t have to attend court. Most cases are settled out of court.
