Help! I Slipped and Fell in Bojangles'*

Grabbing a quick meal from Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits, or any other restaurant, may be really convenient. Yet, what would you do if you got hurt while in a restaurant? Think about your current life and expenses. If you couldn’t work, would you be able to pay your bills?

Slick Floors Create Big Problems

Slick floors may create big problems for diners. Restaurants, such as Bojangles’, or any other restaurant, that specialize in chicken are at particular risk because of the grease used to prepare the food. Unlike water that may be easily wiped up, grease may leave a floor extremely slick even after its been cleaned.

When someone slips and falls because of a slick floor, it may fall under the area of law known as personal injury. However, there are some elements that must be met. If you were hurt while eating at a restaurant, such as Bojangles’, or any other restaurant, and if you believe that your incident fulfills the following four elements, you may contact a personal injury attorney right away.

Four Elements of Personal Injury Claims

  • A duty exists on the part of the restaurant. The exact nature of the duty depends on each situation. However, in the context of a slip and fall accident, the duty is to keep the floors reasonably clean and safe for their patrons. It may be that employees clean the floor and also set out signs to let diners know that the floor is slick.
  • The duty much be breached. A breach of duty isn’t the fact that there was something that made the floor slick or wet. A restaurant employee must know about the hazard and then not make any effort to correct it.
  • An actual injury must occur. A slick floor isn’t an automatic claim for a personal injury. There must be an actual injury that is physical, emotional, or financial. For instance, if you slip and hit your head and need stitches, that may be seen as an actual injury. If you break your arm from the fall, that may be seen as an actual injury. If you slip and catch yourself before you fall, that’s not really a basis for a claim.
  • There must be direct causation. Direct causation means that your injury was caused because of the accident at the restaurant. For instance, if you went into Bojangles’, or any other restaurant, with a broken wrist, a slip and fall would not be the cause of your broken wrist. It was broken in some other way.
