Falling over flat on your face anywhere is not just painful, but it can also cost you money in unexpected medical bills as well as lost wages. When it is your fault because you were distracted and weren’t looking where you were going, you just have to cope with it. How about when it was someone else’s fault?
If you are injured somewhere like a store or a restaurant and it wasn’t your fault, you will be wondering whether you can claim compensation for all those extra bills you now have to pay. Talk to an experienced personal injury attorney to see if he or she can give you some useful advice.
How Could You Fall Over in a Fast Food Restaurant?
Not many people do slip over and fall down in a neat, well run restaurant, as the sorts of hazards that are most likely to cause accidents are quickly removed or not allowed to occur in the first place.
Not every restaurant is well managed, unfortunately. Sloppy workers or overworked and tired workers may not spot trash on the floor that accumulates or mop up spills quickly. Managers may not manage their properties to a high enough standard. That’s when patrons have accidents.
When you slip over unexpectedly, it could just be a minor embarrassment or you could end up in hospital with a broken arm or a dislocated shoulder or hip. The worst case scenario is a bad spinal injury or brain injury.
Although rare, these sorts of injuries will demand extensive and complicated surgery and long term support. That’s when full and fair compensation is necessary to pay the bills and provide the basis for recovery.
Get Legal Advice For Your Claim
It’s hard enough just coping with an injury after an accident for which you were not to blame. Trying to convince an insurance company representing a negligent restaurant owner or manager can be just too hard all by yourself.
The best option is to find a personal injury attorney who has had experience with slip and fall type accidents and premises liability law. An initial consultation will allow you to decide whether a claim is likely to be viable and the attorney can be invaluable if you decide to pursue legal action against those you consider were at fault.
