Unexpected injuries can be more than just a nuisance. If serious, they can lead to costly medical treatment and loss of income as a result of not being able to go back to work. The more serious the injury the more expensive it can be. If you become injured through you own carelessness there is nothing for it but to pay up and be more careful in the future.
However, accidents also happen because of negligence. If you are injured at a restaurant, for instance, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against them or the place you were injured if the fault was due to the restaurant staff. A successful claim can help to pay all those unwanted and unexpected bills.
The Consequences of a Serious Personal Injury
Slipping over or tripping up in a sandwich bar may seem fanciful, but there is a chance it can happen if safety standards are not maintained. A Pita Pit personal injury, or any other injury, is only likely to happen if the franchise is poorly managed or understaffed and basic routines like cleaning up food waste are not adhered to.
Injuries from a slip and fall in a sandwich bar or fast food restaurant vary in severity from a few bruises and a loss in dignity to concussion and paralysis if there is serious damage to the brain or spine. It may seem unlikely to be seriously injured at any restaurant, but serious injuries are certainly possible because customers are unlikely to expect to slip or trip over. Their fall will be swift and unprepared for.
All it takes is to slip up and crash your head into something very hard to do serious damage to it. Alternatively, if you slip and land on your back, it is possible to seriously damage any part of your spine. Paralysis is possible if the spinal cord is severed as a result of a sharp object penetrating the spine as you fall on top of it.
Find a Qualified Attorney
If you have been seriously injured at a Pita Pit or any other restaurant and believe that it was due to the negligence of staff there, then you should talk to an experienced personal injury attorney first before making a personal injury claim against the restaurant responsible.
The attorney will have dealt with many cases like yours before and will be in the best situation to give you a considered opinion about whether you have a chance of succeeding if you file a claim. If you decide to go ahead with legal action after the attorney suggests that it is a sensible option you can let the attorney pursue the claim on your behalf.
