What To Do After A Slip and Fall At Sweetgreen*

If you slipped and fell in a Sweetgreen, or any other fast casual restaurant, you can file a claim to recover damages. If you were injured as a result of a slip and trip or slip and fall at Sweetgreen, or any other casual restaurant, you may be able to recover money for your medical expenses, lost wages (i.e., lost pay) if you couldn’t work as a result of your injuries, and money for damages and suffering.

What To Do If You Slipped And Fell

If you slipped and fell at Sweetgreen, or any other fast casual restaurant, you should not be embarrassed. Slip and fall incidents occur all the time in fast casual restaurants. But the restaurant has a duty to maintain a clean and safe environment for guests. If they failed to do that, then you are owed money to pay for any of your medical or other expenses. If you are injured in a slip and fall at Sweetgreen, or any other casual restaurant, you should always:

Alert the manager on duty. Make sure that they fill out an incident or accident report and get a copy of the report. You will need that to document what happened.

Gather any evidence you can of what happened. Take photos and videos of the area where you fell and make sure that you highlight anything on the floor that contributed to the fall like water on the floor or spilled food on the floor.

Get medical care even if you don’t think that you’re injured directly following your fall. Medical documentation is of the utmost importance, and you need to have the evidence that you were examined by a medical professional immediately after the incident in order to show that you were injured and, thereby, are entitled to compensation.

Talk to a slip and fall lawyer. A lawyer is the best person to advise you on how to file a personal injury claim as well as what evidence you need to get the best possible settlement.

How Can A Slip And Fall Occur

There are many ways that a slip and fall can occur at Sweetgreen, or any other fast casual restaurant. You might trip over chairs or stools that are in the aisles. Or you could fall if a stool or a chair breaks. If someone has spilled beverages or water on the floor, you can slip and fall. Or, if there are napkins or other trash on the floor, these can create a slip and fall hazard too.

Slip And Fall Settlement

There are a lot of things that you should be taken into account when you are filing a slip and fall personal injury claim. Of course, you should include any medical costs that you have as a result of your accident, but you should also be asking for money for things like:

  • Any out-of-pocket costs associated with the injury like co-pays or deductibles
  • The cost of any medications
  • Money that you lost if you couldn’t work
  • Money for pain and suffering

And, if you are permanently injured in a slip and fall, you need to ask for compensation for that as well.
