Statistically, slip and fall accidents are the most common type of accident in the U.S., except for accidents on roads and highways. Many of these accidents go unreported but that doesn’t mean that they don’t cause distress and unexpected financial hardship for people who are victims of unexpected slips, trips and falls.
Quite often, it’s not even the fault of the person who has the accident. They are victims of another person’s negligence and it is not fair to expect the injured person to have to lose any of their own hard earned money as a result.
The best solution if you are injured through no fault of your own to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer and explore the option of filing a personal injury claim against a property owner.
Potential Accidents in a Restaurant
Slip and fall accidents, as well as burns and scalds and food poisoning, are the three most likely harmful incidents that could happen in a typical burger restaurant. Few accidents happen in well run establishments.
If the restaurant is poorly managed it is more likely that someone, especially a restaurant patron, is going to either get hurt or get sick. However it happens, it’s no joke being injured at a restaurant and this makes a personal injury claim a distinct possibility.
Slip and fall accidents are most likely to happen when there is something on the floor that causes the slipping. When floors are poorly maintained or when they are wet or messy from spilled food or drinks, that’s when slipping and tripping are more likely. These accidents are almost always unexpected.
The person who falls over is in danger of breaking a leg or an arm, dislocating a shoulder or a hip, hurting their spine, face or head, as well as getting cut and bruised. There is no common pattern to these injuries as each accident is unique and every person who experiences an accident responds differently.
You should certainly consider making a personal injury claim against Kewpee, or any other restaurant, if any serious accident happens to you while you are dining there.
Making a Claim
It can be hard making a personal injury claim, even if you strongly believe that your injuries could have been avoided. Most restaurant owners and managers are reluctant to admit any responsibility for injuries that have occurred on their property.
It is best to leave the personal injury claim to an experienced attorney. PI attorneys deal with these sorts of incidents regularly and will know what your chances are of making a successful claim.
