Throughout the country at all times of the day and night slip and fall accidents happen unexpectedly.
Fortunately, all states take these sorts of accidents seriously and allow victims to claim compensation for the financial burden of injuries that were not their fault. The victim has to be able to prove that the accident was caused by the negligent actions of the person responsible for maintaining the area where the slip and fall took place.
An experienced personal injury attorney is best consulted before a compensation claim is filed.
Common Safety Hazards at a Restaurant
Your local restaurant chain doesn’t seem to be the place you would expect to slip over and fall. After all it’s a restaurant, not a parking lot or a poorly maintained sidewalk. It might not be so common but these sorts of accidents rarely make top news so you wouldn’t really know how often they take place.
However, they do happy and it’s usually because the restaurant manager hasn’t maintained the facilities to the required standard. Most restaurants have easy to maintain floors but that doesn’t mean they make the time and effort to keep them in a good state so that restaurant users don’t slip and fall without warning.
When drinks or food are spilled all over the floor, it doesn’t take much for restaurant staff to clean up the offending substances with the right cleaning implements or even put up signs warning visitors of the potential hazards.
If they fail to do this and a slip and fall accident takes place, they may have acted negligently putting restaurant patrons at risk of a slip and fall injury. This is grounds for filing a personal injury claim.
Get Legal Help
It’s no point discussing your injury and its financial burden with the person responsible for the slip and fall. It’s better to seek the help and advice of an experienced personal injury attorney who will fight relentlessly on your behalf to get the compensation you deserve.
