What To Do After a Slip and Fall at Jamba Juice*

What To Do If You Slip and Fall at a Restaurant

If you suffer a slip and fall at a restaurant or juice store, you will need to gather documentation to support your claim and to prove that your injuries were caused by the negligence of the restaurant’s employees. Here are some tips regarding how to protect yourself:

  • Any accident on the store property should be reported to management right away. You will need to explain in detail what happened and how it happened. Make sure you tell them you were injured. They will need to complete an accident report.
  • If you have serious injuries, such as a compound fracture or back or neck injury, you will need to call an ambulance. The police will also complete a report if that is the case.
  • If you are physically able, take photos of the accident scene and show where you fell, why you fell, and how you were injured.
  • Ask any witnesses to provide written statements and to explain the accident in detail. Ask for their names and contact information.
  • Establish medical care right away, making sure you are thoroughly examined by a medical professional. Maintain copies of any medical records and medical bills as well as prescription receipts and records and receipts for medical devices.
  • Keep copies of any notes from the physician that require you to take off work or that limit your activities.
  • Maintain proof of missed work and lost wages.
  • Create an itemized list of all your damages and then a value for each damage before you come up with an overall total that indicates your losses.
  • Send a demand letter that indicates you are planning to file a claim and how much you expect for your losses.
