Help! I Got Hurt at Mr. Hero. What Are My Options?*

While it seems like it'd be a minor inconvenience, slipping and falling in your favorite sub shop can easily disrupt your life. In addition, this type of accident is all too common.

Slippery floors, poorly lit rooms and uneven surfaces can contribute to these sorts of accidents. Slip and fall accidents can happen just about anywhere and may lead to quite significant injuries. No-one likes to have to deal with injuries, especially if they have been the result of someone else’s negligence.

Unexpected injuries can mean costly medical bills and may mean lost wages or other income if you are unable to return to work quickly.

These costs may be recovered with the help of a personal injury claim against the person who was to blame for the fall. A personal injury lawyer will explain your rights and help with filing a personal injury claim against Mr. Hero or wherever you were injured.

Possible Injuries at a Restaurant

Slip and fall injuries can vary tremendously, from barely a scratch to things like damage to your teeth, or even a spine or brain injury. These sorts of accidents tend to be unexpected and even alert customers in a restaurant are likely to be taken off guard.

If you suddenly slip, you could land quite awkwardly and may hit something projecting out into your path as you fall over, like the edge of a table.

If you were holding a cup of hot coffee or hot food you could feasibly burn or scald yourself. You could twist an ankle or dislocate your hip or shoulder. Broken bones are quite common, especially when you fling your arm out to protect yourself as you fall.

The worst injuries are to the spine and brain. These injuries demand adequate compensation to help fund proper recovery.

Making Your Claim

If you have badly hurt yourself in a slip and fall accident and are certain it was the fault of the restaurant staff, make an appointment with a personal injury attorney as soon as you are able to do so.

The attorney will have dealt with accidents like yours many times before and will be able to help you decide whether to make a personal injury claim against Mr. Hero, or any other restaurant you experienced your injury.
