Help! I Got Hurt at a Blimpie! What Do I Do?*

Have you taken a spill outside your own home and blame the accident on a negligent property owner? You may be able to claim back any costs associated with the injuries you have sustained if you may prove that the accident was definitely someone else’s fault.

It might not seem a serious issue just to slip up and fall over in a familiar place but serious injuries may and do occur. It is often because the actual accident happens without expecting it and you may be on your back in seconds without realizing what was causing it.

As with all cases of personal injury, it is advisable to call an attorney as soon as you can and get useful advice whether it is worth pursuing the case further.

Could an Accident Happen in a Sandwich Bar?

Slip and fall accidents may unfortunately happen just about anywhere. It is the unexpected nature of the accident that makes these spills potentially dangerous.

A Slip and Fall Accident in a Sandwich Bar

Accidents of the slip and fall type may happen anywhere, especially when the ground is wet and slippery, rough and uneven, strewn with garbage or debris or just plain dark and hard to see.

Accidents may happen in any restaurant or sandwich bar, especially if the franchisee is not very particular about keeping that establishment spic and span and well looked after.

The danger of a slip and fall in a place like a sandwich bar is that it may happen without you realizing that there was a danger. If you do slip and fall because the restaurant had a wet floor with no warning posted, then you could end up in hospital.

It’s so easy to break an arm or a leg or twist an ankle or dislocate a shoulder. None of these sorts of injuries are likely to clear up by themselves very quickly.

You could find yourself saddled with big bills for hospital treatment or lose out on wages because you had to stay at home while recuperating.

Contemplating Taking Legal Action? Contact an Attorney!

If you think you can prove that your accident was caused by negligence then you may have a good chance of claiming compensation. This may be a long, slow process, especially if the property owner and insurance company representing them are reluctant to admit liability.

Premises liability law may be hard to interpret unless you have a legal background and you may find it a lot easier contacting a personal injury attorney with experience in these sorts of cases.

The attorney will give you a professional opinion about your accident and whether you stand a chance of settling compensation. If you do decide to take legal action, the attorney may pursue your claim on your behalf.
