Most of us associate serious debilitating accidents with highway incidents. Few of us would think about slipping and falling at a restaurant and ending up in a hospital with a serious injury. Unfortunately, this does happen time and time again, but such accidents barely get a mention in the media.
This lack of media attention does not mean that the pain from your accident is meaningless. If you believe you have a serious injury due to a restaurant manager’s negligence, you should not wait too long before contacting a personal injury attorney. He or she could assess your chances of getting compensation when you were injured at a restaurant and may file a personal injury claim against whoever was at fault.
Restaurants and Slip and Fall Accidents
It takes little imagination to predict what would happen if you slipped and fell on spilled food or drink in a fast food restaurant as they are popular, busy places with many potential hazards waiting to trip up unwary restaurant users.
For example, if you are injured at a a fast food joint, you may suffer a broken arm when you fall forwards and you put out your arm to break your fall or a broken leg if you slip and fall at an unfortunate angle. Broken limbs can keep you from working and you may have to stay at home to recover, saddled with the financial burden of your injuries. That’s when a personal injury claim should be considered.
See a Personal Injury Attorney Before It’s Too Late
There is nothing worse than shouldering the financial burden of an injury that was not your fault. It may be difficult to ask for compensation directly from the restaurant manager as they will most likely claim that the accident was your fault and not theirs. However, a personal injury attorney will think differently, and, if you have the required evidence, could pursue a personal injury claim against the eatery on your behalf.
