I Got Hurt At an Arctic Circle Restaurant. What Do I Do?*

Have you, or a member of your family, been injured in a way you never expected? Places like restaurants and cafes are not places that you would expect to slip over and injure yourself, but it seems to be always a possibility. Serious injuries can work out a lot more expensive than you ever anticipated.

There are medical bills you are probably not insured for as well as the lost income if you have to recover at home for any length of time.

There is no reason why you should have to cope with all the extra bills by yourself if someone else was too blame for your injuries. Ask a personal injury attorney for advice.

You may be entitled to claim for full compensation.

What Can Go Wrong in a Fast Food Restaurant?

You can easily slip over and sustain a nasty injury if you are unaware of hazards that exist. Usually, for instance, if floors are mopped clean, a warning notice is propped up so that customers are aware that the floor could be slippery. Then these customers will take extra care or avoid the area altogether.

If employees fail to post a warning or fail to clean up after a messy customer has dropped food or drink all over the floor, this could prove to be a slip and fall hazard. Ideally, good management keeps employees on their toes or finds a way to avoid hazards in their premises altogether.

The danger of slippery or trash strewn floors is that they are not expected to be present. Patrons can slip over and break any of their limbs or dislocate a wrist or ankle, damage an internal organ or suffer excessive bleeding if they hit something sharp.

After an Injury at a Fast Food Restaurant

You may be forced to file a personal injury lawsuit if you need full compensation for the injuries that have been caused by negligent restaurant staff. You will find that an experienced attorney may provide invaluable advice concerning the claims process.

The attorney may be able to give you a professional assessment of your chances of winning a claim should you decide to pursue legal action. Usually, successful claims depend on providing clear evidence linking negligent behavior with your specific injuries.
