Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee’ East Dorset compensation claim after being hurt whilst working in a butchers?
Although many people do enjoy working in a butcher’s shop, it can be a relatively dangerous profession. In order to sell the meat, butchers are required to cut it to an appropriate size and they often use specialist equipment to do this. Whilst machinery is sometimes used, many butchers also rely on very sharp knives to carry out the work. If they were to slip and cut themselves, they could suffer a very, very serious injury indeed.
Of course, using machinery to cut the pieces of meat doesn’t mean that accidents won’t occur. In some ways, they may even be more likely to occur as something could go wrong with the machinery. If, for example, the safety features fail to work or if the machine won’t switch off, an employee could easily suffer an injury if they were using the machine at the time that it malfunctioned.
If you have been hurt whilst working at a butcher’s shop or a delicatessen, you may want to make a ‘no win, no fee’ East Dorset compensation claim. If you’ve suffered serious injuries, there is likely to be an investigation to determine exactly what caused the incident. If, for example, the machinery did malfunction, it will need to be inspected in order to find out why it went wrong. In some cases, manufacturers may even need to recall similar units so that other incidents don’t occur. If the investigation confirms that the incident wasn’t your fault, it should be relatively easy for you to make a successful ‘no win, no fee’ East Dorset compensation claim.
