If you have been injured in an accident at work then speak to our injury solicitors in Oswestry today to find out if you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Although there are many firms and companies out there that can deal with a work accident compensation claim, here at Accident Advice Helpline we have over 16 years’ experience in dealing with a wide variety of claims, and our injury solicitors in Oswestry are all experts in their field. That means we can guarantee that you are getting the very best in care and advice and we will be with you every step of the way as your claim progresses.
Catering industry accidents
Although work based accidents can happen in any career and profession, our injury solicitors in Oswestry have dealt with countless injuries that have occurred within the catering industry.
Working in a kitchen can be a very dangerous experience, especially with so many hot pans, griddles, hobs and ovens to contend with. A moment’s lack of concentration and you may well end up with a nasty injury as a result. It may be that another staff member was walking behind you with a hot pan, and because they did not announce the potential for danger, you backed into them and burnt your arm on the pan they were carrying.
An experienced injury solicitor would know that your employer should have various health and safety policies and procedures in place, and that there should be an established way of ensuring accidents such as these do not occur. If it transpires that your employer did not do all they could to ensure your safety then you may be able to make a claim against them.
Obviously there are many sharp objects present within a kitchen, even if it’s not a professional one. If you have been operating a piece of machinery or equipment and been injured as a result, whether that be a “simple” laceration or even the amputation of a digit, then you might be able to make a claim against your employer. An experienced injury solicitor will know that you should have received all the necessary training to be able to handle such machinery and equipment efficiently, effectively and more importantly, safely. If your employer has failed to provide you with the suitable training, or personal protection equipment to help maintain your safety, then they may well be liable for your accident, and your lacerations.
