When you go onto restaurant property, it is only normal to expect a safe shopping environment. If you go onto the premises and they haven’t been properly maintained and you suffer an injury, you can hold the restaurant accountable for your damages. If you slipped and fell and can prove that they were negligent, you can pursue a personal injury claim against the store to recover compensation for your damages.
There are four elements of negligence. When you can prove all four elements of negligence have been met, you can have a successful personal injury claim. For example, you must show that the other party owed you a duty. In this case, the restaurant owes you a responsibility or a duty to maintain safe premises.
Next, you must show that duty was breached. As an example, they failed to mop up a spilled soda and didn’t put up a wet floor sign, so you were unaware of the problem and you slipped and fell. Next, you must show that the breach of duty caused your accident. You wouldn’t have slipped and fell if the floor had been dry. Then you must show your injuries wouldn’t have happened if you hadn’t fell.
