Food Service Injuries

Albuquerque Workers' Compensation Lawyers

Everyone needs to eat, and the routine of going to get food can become so mundane that it is easy to overlook the men and women dedicating their time and energy to the food service industry. Matters become even more troublesome when the employers of food service workers also forget the importance and the rights of their employees. Many times, when someone working in the food service industry is injured on the job, they will be in for an uphill battle if they want to receive workers’ compensation benefits.

Members of the food service industry include, but are not limited to:

  • Chefs
  • Line cooks
  • Bartenders
  • Waiters and waitresses
  • Bussers
  • Hosts and hostesses

Doyle is ready to stand up and fight for the rights food service employees that have been injured while performing their expected duties.

Injuries Affecting Food Service Employees

Cooking, preparing, and serving meals to the hungry is no easy task – you can ask anyone who has ever been employed in the industry. During lunch and dinner rushes, the hectic state of a restaurant or eatery can double in the blink of an eye. If safety regulations are not properly maintained, someone can be seriously hurt.

A food service member may suffer numerous injuries, such as:

  • Back injuries (slip and fall accidents)
  • Severe burns
  • Lacerations
  • Broken bones

Work Closely with Our Albuquerque Workers’ Comp Lawyer

Retaining powerful representation in and out of court can make or break your chances of recovering comfortably. Understandably, many people are afraid of the costs of securing legal advocacy, though, and may shy away from getting the support they truly need. At our law firm, the last thing we want to do is put more stress on our clients’ shoulders, so we offer contingency fee agreements. This means that you do not have to pay us unless we win you a settlement or beneficial verdict.
