Slip and fall injuries can happen just about anywhere, so this type of injury at a restaurant or other public place cannot be ruled out. Accidents normally have a human cause, as someone, usually through their actions or even inaction, makes an accident more likely to happen. Sometimes it’s just carelessness on the part of the person who has the accident. Sometimes it’s someone else who is at fault.
If you are injured in a place like a restaurant and know that the restaurant staff or the management was to blame, you have the option of making a personal injury claim against them. This may be needed if you face unexpected costs because of your injuries.
These sorts of accidents are almost as common as car accidents and usually happen because there is some kind of hazard in the way that is hard to spot.
Typical hazards in a fast food restaurant are wet floors, spilled drinks, food remains that haven’t been swept up, trash and loose flooring. Other causes of injury are hot surfaces or equipment.
Normally, in a well run restaurant, these hazards either do not exist or are attended too quickly. If you are unlucky enough to have a slip and fall accident, it may be because the safety standards at that restaurant were not good enough. Injuries such as broken bones, dislocated hips and shoulders, spine or brain damage are all common slip and fall injuries.
If you have suffered any of these injuries and it was not your fault, you should consider a personal injury claim.
