I Got Hurt at Burger Chef. What Do I Do?*

If you call in to a fast food outlet for a snack or a meal or even just a coffee, you certainly don’t expect to wake up in a hospital bed. If you do have an accident it will probably be because you have suffered a burn or scald from accidentally coming into contact with hot equipment, food or drink or you just slipped over on a slippery floor.

Your ordeal doesn’t end there as any medical treatment you need will have to be paid for. And that’s not all. You may not be able to go back to work in a hurry and could, in extreme circumstances, lose your job altogether.

That’s the point at which you might just start thinking about your legal options. A personal injury claim could be one of these options if you can prove that you were not to blame for your own injuries.

Fast Food Restaurant Slip and Fall Injuries

The most common type of accident in these restaurants is a slip and fall accident.

The floor is greasy or wet or covered with accumulated debris that lazy patrons have dropped on the ground and you slip over and fall flat on your back.

These sorts of accidents are much more likely if the restaurant is managed poorly or employees are unresponsive to the sorts of potential hazard that could cause you to stumble and fall over.

If you are lucky, a slip and fall may mean nothing more than a spot of embarrassment. If you are not so lucky, you could end up in hospital, needing surgery to fix a broken leg or an arm.

Other typical slip and fall injuries that could occur in a fast food restaurant are hip and shoulder dislocations, facial cuts, damage to the teeth and jaw, head, neck and spinal damage.

None of these injuries are easily repaired and may mean days, weeks or months to recover fully.

Why You Need Professional Legal Help

Even if you think that your accident was definitely not your fault, you may find that it is hard to prove who was to blame.

An experienced personal injury attorney can provide a professional opinion about whether you have a good chance of making a successful claim and pursue legal action on your behalf.
