Have you had an accident outside your own home recently and suffered a significant injury? You may be wondering just how you are going to cope, especially if you are unable to get to work because of your injuries.
If your accident was not your fault and was caused by someone else’s negligence you may be able to recover the full cost of your injuries, including hospital bills and other medical costs and any lost income by making a compensation claim with the help of a personal injury attorney.
Potential Accidents at A Burger Joint
The most common accidents in fast food restaurants are slip and fall type accidents. In fact, these rather unassuming sorts of accidents are the most common type of accidents in the country except for traffic accidents.
It doesn’t take much to slip or trip up and land on your back. All it takes is a floor surface that is just a bit too slippery or has some kind of debris on it. In a fast food restaurant this could easily be discarded food, food containers left on the ground or spilled sodas or coffee.
These sorts of accidents are less likely to occur in a well managed restaurant where staff are told to make sure that the floor is cleaned and cleared on a regular basis.
If these accidents do happen it implies that all is not well at the restaurant and negligent management has let things slide.
It is rare for slip and fall accidents to be fatal, but that doesn’t mean that they are not serious. Broken bones, dislocations, burns and scalds can all accompany a slip and fall in a restaurant where hazards are not removed promptly.
