Are you making a ‘no win, no fee’ Blantyre claim after being hurt whilst working in a kitchen?
Any venue which serves food is likely to have a whole range of kitchen staff. Whilst smaller venues may simply require a chef and waiters and waitresses, larger venues may have a whole team of kitchen staff, including a head chef, sous chefs, kitchen assistants and cleaning staff. Regardless of the number of people working in the kitchen, all staff must follow very specific rules to ensure that it remains a safe place to work.
Due to the nature of the working environment, accidents can happen fairly easily, particularly if people fail to follow health and safety guidelines. For example, chefs are often required to use sharp knives or to use potentially dangerous equipment to carry out their work. In addition to this, they may be cooking on high heat using a number of hobs, ovens and cookers. With so much going on at once, it’s not surprising that injuries can occur from time to time.
If you are hurt whilst working in a kitchen environment, you may consider making a ‘no win, no fee’ Blantyre compensation claim against your employer. Although you may have been hurt whilst at work, you will still need to show that your employer is actually responsible for your injuries in order to make a successful ‘no win, no fee’ Blantyre claim. If, for example, they had failed to provide adequate equipment and this contributed to your injuries, you may be eligible to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Blantyre claim. Similarly, if they forced you to work in unsanitary conditions and you become ill as a result, you could go on to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Blantyre claim against them.
Often, when people are hurt at work, it can affect their ability to perform their job role for a considerable amount of time. If, for example, you suffer burns to your hands whilst working in a kitchen, you may be unable to return to work until your injuries have fully healed. In such cases, employees may be entitled to receive sick pay from the state or their employer. However, in many cases, the amount of sick pay any employee receives isn’t as much as their normal salary so they can suffer financially as a result of getting hurt.
