Auto Accidents in a Little Caesars Restaurant Drive Through*

Pizzas are some of the most common takeout meals, and drive through restaurants get their fair share of pizza lovers’ traffic. Often large lines form at the drive through, and drivers often get frantic and impatient waiting to get their pizzas. It’s in these situations that accidents take place and serious injuries are inflicted on drivers and passengers who are sitting in their cars while waiting to move along the line. If this has happened to you, it may be possible to file a personal injury compensation claim from the negligent driver who caused your accident. However, to make the whole process easier a personal injury lawyer should be consulted before the claim is filed.

Personal Injury Claims after a Restaurant Drive Through Auto Accident

If you have been involved in an accident in a drive through restaurant, it’s most likely to be a side swipe as an impatient driver may be in a hurry to leave the drive through and try to squeeze past you while you are still in the line. This may cause damage to your body, such as lacerations and broken limbs, particularly if you or your passengers’ car doors are ripped off in the process.

As long as the accident was not your fault, you will need to collect the evidence to prove the negligent driver was the cause of the side swipe. This means ensuring you have the following before filing a personal injury claim:

  • Contact details of any witnesses
  • Police report
  • Photographs of the scene of the accident
  • A medical report from your doctor
  • Evidence of your wages
  • Receipts for any medical treatment you have paid for
  • Receipts for repairs to your car

A personal injury claim should compensate you for the financial hardship you have suffered due to the accident that wasn’t your fault. You should ensure that you are aware of the time limits for filing a personal injury claim in the state where the accident happened. They can vary from 12 months to 3 years, and once that time is up it’s unlikely you will still be able to file a personal injury claim.

Why You Should Use a Personal Injury Attorney

To ensure you file a claim that suits the true value of your financial hardship, you should talk to a personal injury attorney. An attorney will try to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
