If you have been injured through no fault of your own, the last thing you want to be saddled with is a whole bunch of bills that you have to pay simply because of someone else’s negligence. The worst case scenario is a really serious injury like brain damage or spinal damage, either of which could cause you grief for years.
That’s when a personal injury claim makes sense. Talk to an experienced personal injury attorney about your legal options as soon as you can if you have suffered significant injuries after a slip and fall or other type of accident.
Slip and Fall Injuries in a Restaurant
Perhaps one advantage of eating in your own car or at home, for that matter, is that you are less likely to have an accident while waiting to be served or moving around a busy restaurant.
Slip and fall injuries are always a possibility in a fast food type restaurant because staff are often preoccupied serving customers and don’t always get around to make sure that the floor surface is safe.
Anything that finds its way on to the floor, such as discarded food, cartons cups and trash in general can be a hazard for anyone moving around. You don’t expect to have an accident in a restaurant and this lack of concern may mean that you are unprepared if you trip on any debris or slick surfaces.
Restaurant accidents may include burns and scalds from hot equipment that is left around or located in a precarious position as well as spilled food or drinks if you do slip up or fall over.
File Your Claim for Compensation!
If you do have an accident and are sure it was not your fault, but rather due to negligence on the part of a property owner or people who work at or in the place you had the accident, contact an attorney about the possibility of filing a claim.
It is advisable to do this sooner rather than later as evidence to support your claim will be easier to find and any eye witnesses more likely to remember the details.
