It can be quite a frightening experience slipping and falling and being injured at any restaurant. It’s the sort of thing you never thought could possibly happen. However when it does it could mean some quite serious injuries such as broken bones, head injuries and spinal injuries. You may even never be able to return to a full-time job which can have a serious affect on your finances.
If your slip and fall accident is caused by someone else you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the person found to be at-fault. A personal injury attorney is best contacted who will assess whether you are eligible to file a personal injury claim against the restaurant owner and/or any staff member of the sub shop.
It may be quite surprising to hear that slip and fall accidents are the commonest accidents in the United States. In most cases, it is a hazard that should not have been there that caused the accident. You would think that a well coordinated restaurant management would check around its premises on a regular basis.
Unfortunately, this does not always happen. Because of this act of negligence, people may fall over the most unexpected hazards because they weren’t cleaned up in a timely, responsible manner to prevent a slip and fall accident taking place.
A personal injury could be quite minor, like scratches and bruises. Serious accidents could inflict spinal or brain damage. The less aware the victim was of a hazard the more likely a serious injury would take place.
Restaurant owners can be difficult to negotiate with in a slip and fall accident. However, an experienced personal injury attorney may be happy to take up the case if it involved being injured.
You may face an uphill battle if you go it alone, because any company that serves the public is already prepared for these types of cases. Hiring an attorney may be the best way to be compensated for your injuries.
