There are four elements of negligence, and when you can show all four elements have been met, you can have a successful personal injury claim. If you suffered a slip and fall in Burger King, you can pursue a personal injury claim.
Burger King owes all its customers a duty or has a responsibility to them to keep premises safe for their visits. If this duty is breached, and you suffer a slip and fall that leaves you injured, all the elements of negligence have been met. The value of your personal injury claim can vary greatly.
Damages Suffered In A Burger King Slip And Fall
You will incur a variety of damages because of a Burger King slip and fall. You must list all these damages and then itemize your losses, coming up with an overall total for your loss. You can file for all those losses when you pursue your Burger King personal injury claim. Here are a few of the more common damages:
• Past and future medical expenses
• Past and future lost wages
• Pain and suffering
• Permanent scarring and disfigurement
• Mental anguish
• Loss of enjoyment of life
• Loss of consortium
More serious injuries will result in a higher settlement. As an example, a broken leg that will require surgery and physical therapy and lead to six months off work will result in a higher settlement than a claim for a sprained ankle that will require a couple of doctor visits and six weeks off work. Your premises liability attorney will help determine the value of your case.
What To Do After A Burger King Slip And Fall
If you suffer injuries in a slip and fall at Burger King, you should report your accident right away. The manager on duty will need to complete an accident report.
