Waiters and Waitresses
Working as a waiter or waitress is considered a generally safe vocation. However, as with all jobs there are instances where you could suffer an injury in this job role. Injuries that are commonly suffered by waiters and waitresses can range from minor to severe and can include:
- Slips, trips and falls
- Back Injuries
- Electric shocks due to faulty equipment
Alongside these injuries waiters and waitresses can be exposed to various cleaning solutions and chemicals which have been known to be harmful to health. Symptoms of harmful exposure include:
- Skin reactions
- Lung damage
In the event of any accident at work, we always advise that you seek medical attention first. Make sure your accident is recorded in the accident book, if not at the time of accident then as soon as possible afterwards.
The accident book is very important when making a claim for compensation. Although the compensation is not dependent on an entry in the accident book it will certainly help us to be able to present your case with as much evidence as possible.

As a waiter/waitress, and in any other occupation, you should be protected from risk of injury while you As work. In a restaurant, your employer possesses a duty of care to ensure that his/her employees are not at risk of slips, trips and falls, burn injuries, or the actions of any colleagues. This is due to the stress and pressure of working in a kitchen, which can cause tempers to become frayed, and actions to become irrational.
At Claims National, a solicitor will assess the circumstances and causes of your injury, and decide upon the estimated sum of compensation that you could receive. If it seems likely that your case will be won, solicitors at Clams National will then pursue your claim, and with their experience and expertise, will help you be granted the compensation you deserve.
