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:
- Line cooks
- Waiters and waitresses
- Hosts and hostesses

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
- Broken bones

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.
