Carrs Solicitors settle a scalding compensation claim

We acted for a young worker in the catering industry who suffered severe scalding injuries after being asked to carry boiling water from a water boiler used to make hot drinks to fill a very large pan before tipping it into a bucket for the purpose of cleaning.

Our case focused on the fact that this method was in breach of the employers duty of care which required the employer to institute, operate and enforce a safe system of work.

Following an initial denial of liability, the insurers eventually agreed to settle the case and we were able to secure compensation after taking advice from a consultant plastic and hand surgeon in relation to our client’s injuries.
