    Many people dream of becoming a professional chef, and for some, working in any form of catering position is the equivalent of their dreams coming true.

    Of course, sometimes dreams turn into nightmares. While the job itself might be all that you had ever hoped it would be, there is a chance that if you work in the catering industry, you could be involved in an accident and therefore injured.

    The same is true for any job – no one is immune completely from the possibility of injury.  If you have been injured in a work based accident within the last three years, whether it was whilst working in a professional kitchen or restaurant or a shoe shop, then you might be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

    Contact Accident Advice Helpline today and speak to one of our fully qualified and experienced solicitors in Ossett to find out more about making a claim.

    Speaking to an experienced solicitor in Ossett

    Speaking to an injury solicitor in Ossett is one of the first steps to making a compensation claim.

    You solicitor will be able to go through the details of your accident with you and discuss your injuries. They will help establish who was responsible for the accident and is therefore liable for the injuries that you have suffered as a result.

    For example, if you work in a professional kitchen you may have been injured as a result of a burn or a scald. If you work in a kitchen it may not be possible to completely eliminate the risks posed by the working environment, for example, hot ovens and grills will always be present. However, your employer has a duty of care to ensure that if the risks cannot be completely removed they are at least mitigated. In such an instance this is usually achieved by providing personal protection equipment, perhaps suitable oven gloves. If this is not done and you are injured as a result, then your injury solicitor in Ossett will be able to initiate a claim against your employer for failing to discharge their duty of care appropriately.

    Slips and falls can also be relatively commonplace in kitchen environments. Due to the time constraints imposed on getting food to the customer quickly, kitchens tend to be very hectic places, with people rushing around in many directions. As a result, various fluids, whether it be beverages or soups and sauces, as well as food left overs, can drop onto the floor. An employer should ensure that these spillages are cleaned up quickly, or at least signed as being a potential hazard. If this is not achieved and you are injured as a result of slipping on the proverbial banana peel, then your injury solicitor in Ossett might be able to assist you in making a claim against your employer for putting you at risk.

    Regardless of the circumstances, contact Accident Advice Helpline today.
