Slip and Fall Accidents at a Noodles & Company*

Have you, or a family member, had an unexpected accident at a restaurant? All it takes is a patch of grease on the floor and you end up on the floor with a painful back.

Accidents like these are not always minor and you could end up with not just the pain and suffering, but a huge bill for medical expenses that you were never insured for and certainly never anticipated. What about that regular income that you and your family were depending on?

If you are hospitalized or need time to recover at home, who is going to provide the wages you may miss out on? If you do experience a slip and fall accident, you should always contact an attorney to get advice about what you can do. You may be able to claim compensation from the property owner if you can prove that the accident should never have happened if the property was not maintained properly.

Slip and Fall Injuries Can be Serious

Sometimes it is hard to imagine a simple fall to lead to serious injuries, but these are always possible. Injuries such as brain damage and spinal fractures may happen because of the way that the person falls over. Most falls happen unexpectedly and there may be too little time to deploy a way of preventing injury.

Many accident victims tend to break their arms, hands or wrists most often because they put them out in front of them as they fall to break the impact. It can be hard to convince a court that an accident was due to negligence on the part of the restaurant manager or employees but this is what is needed if the victim has any chance of recovering damages through legal action.

How a Personal Injury Attorney Can Help You With a Claim

The example demonstrates just how important it is to get legal help if you have a serious accident. It is rare for property owners and their insurance companies to admit liability, even if the circumstances seem clear cut. The chance of successfully negotiating sufficient compensation without the professional help from an experienced accident attorney is low.
