Accidents don’t just happen. They always have a cause. Sometimes you may get careless, don’t concentrate and over you go. Then you may have to deal with the consequences all by yourself. But it’s just as likely that your accident wasn’t your fault. It was someone else’s. That’s when paying for bills that you shouldn’t have to pay seems unfair.
If you have any type of accident that was clearly not your fault and you can prove who caused it you may have grounds for a personal injury claim against that person. It’s best to get some advice as soon as you can from an attorney.
Slip and Fall Accidents at a Restaurant
It may be hard to imagine having any kind of accident in a restaurant, but it does happen from time to time. If you slip over on a slippery or loose floor or you stumble on discarded food remains, packaging or spilled drinks then it is possible that this may be the result of staff or manager at the restaurant being negligent.
Well managed restaurants, where employees keep on top of potential hazards and remove them as soon as they are noticed, rarely have serious accidents.
Typical injuries that can occur after slipping, stumbling or tripping over in a restaurant depend exactly on how the fall takes place. They are more likely to be serious if the fall is very awkward or the person falls against something hot, sharp or particularly hard.
If you are seriously thinking of claiming compensation, it would be best to contact a slip and fall lawyer as soon as your injuries allow you to do so. Personal injury lawyers deal with incidents like yours on a regular basis and may even have had experience negotiating with the insurance company that acts for the at-fault party in your case.
Most PI claims that are acted on by an attorney rarely go to court. They tend to be settled after a period of negotiation but your attorney will not hesitate to take it to court if this proves necessary to win the case.
