It’s easier than you think to have an accident and land on your back when you step outside your home. Even when you go to a restaurant for a bite to eat, you could have a serious accident. Accidents can be more than just inconvenient. They can be very costly.
Fortunately, as long as you can provide sufficient evidence of negligence on the part of someone else, it is possible to recover expenses by filing a personal injury claim against the person or company that caused the accident.
It is necessary to find proof of who caused your accident and contact an experienced personal injury attorney who will negotiate with insurers on your behalf.
Potential Accidents in a Sub Shop
Just because you have an accident in a public place like a restaurant or store, it doesn’t mean that you will be seriously injured. In fact, slip and fall accidents are less likely to lead to a fatality than accidents on the roads. However, if you are injured at a Port of Subs, or on any other property, it is unlikely that you were anticipating it.
These sorts of accidents are usually quite unpredictable and injuries are often more serious than you would expect as they may happen too quickly to react.
Typical slip and fall injuries depend very much on how you fall over and what you strike as you fall. Fast food stores or restaurants tend to have low maintenance, hard and smooth floors and these can be quite unforgiving if you fall on top of them.
Contact an Attorney As Soon as Possible
It doesn’t pay to wait too long before at least having an initial discussion with a personal injury attorney if you are considering making a personal injury claim. The longer you leave it, the more difficult it is to recover useful evidence that can help sustain your case. It may also be more difficult to make contact with any witnesses who watched what happened when you had your accident.
The attorney will give you an honest opinion about your chances of success and will pursue the claim on your behalf if you do decide to go ahead with legal action.
