Food Service Worker Injuries And The Law

Restaurants, caterers and other food service providers must meet strict requirements, not only for food safety, but also for the safety of their employees. Even so, employees in the food service industry still sustain serious, life-altering injuries. Whether your injury resulted from a sudden accident on the job or was a condition that developed over time as a result of repetitive movements, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.

At Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo, we have provided quality legal service to clients throughout Pennsylvania since 1936. We are dedicated to providing you with the advice, representation and advocacy you need at every stage of your case.

Workers' Compensation And Third-Party Claims

If you were injured at work, regardless of fault, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. If your injuries were caused by a negligent third party, however, you may also have a third-party liability claim. Third parties may include the negligent manufacturer of food service equipment, an outside contractor who came into your workplace or the driver of another vehicle who caused your accident while you were working.
