How we work
Our legal experts have many years of experience in helping catering and kitchen staff to claim compensation after sustaining injuries in an incident that was not their fault. We have handled cases involving the following:
- Burns from hot surfaces
- Electrocutions from exposed wiring
- Faulty kitchen appliances
- Cuts from sharp knives and other equipment
- Burns from hot liquids
- Back injuries from lifting heavy objects
- Bruises, sprains and fractures from slipping on wet surfaces
No matter what type of injury you have suffered in a catering accident, we will do our utmost to strengthen your case and therefore give the best chance of securing the compensation you deserve.
Compensation secured will help to cover lost earnings for any time you have needed off work, while also covering costly medical bills, transport to and from appointments and any other charges incurred as a result of your injury.
Your employer’s responsibility
Employers must ensure that all kitchen staff are properly trained and that the work area is regularly checked for hazards and safety issues. This is especially important when employees may be working in an unfamiliar kitchen when catering at an event.
It is also advised that employers avoid having staff take on multiple tasks at once by ensuring there is an adequate number of catering and waiting staff available.
Kitchen accidents can also occur in non-commercial kitchens, such as office kitchens and break rooms in factories. Electrical equipment, knives, spills and hot water all present dangers for employees in these facilities.
No matter how your injury was sustained, our legal specialists are on hand to guide you throughout the compensation process. The amount claimed can help to cover the cost of medical bills, transport to and from appointments and any lost earnings you have incurred as a result of your injury.
