PHC Law hails court's decision to compensate injured kitchen worker

Mon, 26 Mar 2012 12:20:53 EST

Preston-based personal injury solicitors PHC Law has backed a court's decision to award a woman £2,000 in compensation after she was injured at work.
 
Mrs Wilkinson was working in a hospital kitchen using a portable, combined fridge and oven unit when the accident happened. As she attempted to close the door of the fridge, another door attached to the cooker opened, causing hot air to rush out of the appliance and catch her in the face.
 
Mrs Wilkinson suffered scalding to her face and neck and was forced to take three weeks off work as a result. Thankfully, despite receiving extremely painful injuries, she went on to make a full recovery and was not scarred during the accident at work.
 
Following the incident, Mrs Wilkinson decided not to suffer in silence and contacted PHC Law to discover whether she was entitled to make a claim. The professional team at PHC Law talked her through the whole process and agreed to take on the case on a no win, no fee basis. The company's legal costs were recovered separately and Mrs Wilkinson was able to keep 100 per cent of her compensation.
 
John Cooper, a senior consultant of PHC Law said: "We're delighted that Mrs Wilkinson has been suitably compensated following an accident that shouldn't have been allowed to happen. Every employer in the UK has a duty of care to their workers, and must ensure that they are providing a safe and secure working environment.
 
"We would urge anyone who has been injured following an accident at work to get in touch with a member of the team at PHC Law, just like Mrs Wilkinson did, to see if they could be entitled to compensation."
