You may never really think that injuries resulting from a simple slip and fall accident can be quite severe but they can be. Often such injuries require extensive medical treatment, especially if serious injuries like head or back injuries have taken place. This can become expensive, particularly if you have inadequate insurance to cover it.
You may never be able to return to work, which means loss of earnings would take place. If you can prove the accident was not your fault you should consider taking legal action against the person who caused your slip and fall accident.
A personal injury attorney is the best person to approach if you have been injured in a slip and fall accident that was not your fault.
Slip and Fall Injuries in a Restaurant
A well run restaurant is unlikely to experience a slip and fall accident, but a poorly run one could and more often than you may think. Typical hazards in a restaurant like this are liquids and food dropped on the floor, slippery flooring following recent cleaning and ragged and loose floor coverings.
Accidents like slip and falls are typically unexpected when victims fall over and become injured. So often when someone slips and falls it means hitting their head on a hard surface or a sharp corner of a table or other bit of restaurant furniture.
Injuries that occur the most apart from cuts and bruises are broken bones and head injuries.
Getting Compensated for Your Injuries
You would have expected that the manager of a restaurant where someone has slipped and fallen over would be apologetic and offer some compensation. This doesn’t usually happen, even if it’s quite clear that the accident was due to negligence.
This means the only way you can be assured that you will get some sort of compensation to cover the financial hardship of your accident is to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney who will decide if there is sufficient evidence to pursue a personal injury claim on your behalf.
