Commercial Kitchen Accidents

The kitchen is the heart of all restaurants, hotels and catering businesses, but as well as being one of the most important rooms it is also one of the most dangerous.

It is not just chefs who are at risk of injury – waiting staff, front of house staff and others can also be hurt.

If you’ve been hurt in a commercial kitchen, or while working in the fast food industry, call the experts here at YouClaim today on 0800 10 757 95 to find out whether you can make a claim.

In a commercial kitchen, regardless of whether it is in a restaurant, pub, bakery, staff canteen or food products factory, there should be a health and safety regime and supervisory system in place to guard employees from the potential risks of an accident in the workplace.

Employees must take care of their own welfare and may have to take a degree of blame for an injury occurring, however, the employer and fellow workers could also be at fault if, for example, an electrical appliance has not been properly maintained.

Common Risks

There are all kinds of risks present while working in a kitchen. At YouClaim we have experience in varied accidents in this environment and regularly secure compensation for the following:

  • Burn injuries
  • Slip injuries caused by split liquid

If you believe that the actions of someone else have resulted in injury, depending on the circumstances, it may be possible to make a claim for compensation for the harm caused and a specialist personal injury lawyer should be consulted.
