Restaurant Employee Injuries in Charlotte

Defending the Rights of Injured Workers throughout North Carolina

Restaurant workers are exposed to a hazardous work environment every day. From fast food establishments to Michelin-star restaurants, there are many risks that can result in serious injury.

If you work in a restaurant and suffer an injury, you can file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. At Price, Petho & Anderson, we are committed to helping injured restaurant employees throughout North Carolina. Whether your employer or their insurance company denies or disputes your claim, our Charlotte workers’ comp attorneys will protect your rights and best interests.

Workers’ Compensation for Restaurant Employees

Suffering a serious injury can result in missing significant time from work or even put an end to your career in the restaurant injury. What makes the situation worse is that the medical bills keep piling up and working to pay for those expenses is out of the question. Fortunately, you can obtain financial relief while recovering from your injuries.

Common causes of injury in the restaurant industry include:

  • Slippery floors
  • Sharp knives and kitchen utensils
  • Hot oil or grease
  • Hot surfaces
  • Lifting or moving heavy objects
  • Dangerous chemical exposure
  • Malfunctioning kitchen appliances

Injured restaurant workers can recover workers’ compensation benefits if their injury occurred within the scope of their job duties. You don’t need to show that your employer was negligent in order to recover compensation. Once the claim is made, your employer’s insurance company will review the information and determine whether your claim is valid or invalid.

Furthermore, it is possible to make a third-party claim if you suffered an injury caused by the negligence of someone other than your employer. For example, if you suffered a severe burn injury caused by a malfunctioning oven that was later revealed to be defective, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the over manufacturer.

It is possible to seek damages from both workers’ compensation and personal injury claims.
