Help! I Got hurt in a Rax Roast Beef. What Do I Do?*

You could be in serious pain if you slip and fall in a restaurant. Since these accidents are usually unexpected, you will probably need medical treatment to treat an injury like a broken arm or a serious injury to the spine if you fell backwards. Accidents like this usually will require you to take time off work to recover which will inevitably cause significant financial hardship.

Fortunately, if you are injured at a restaurant and it is not your fault, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the person who caused your injury. You are advised to seek advice from a personal injury lawyer who will decide if there is enough evidence to win a successful claim.

Why is a Slip and Fall Accident a Possibility in a Restaurant

A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere, even at your favorite spot to grab a bite. It only takes an unexpected, slippery hazard to be present and a patron of the restaurant could be injured while moving around the restaurant. Most people think that a restaurant would be a safe place, but it doesn’t take much for the manager to lose staff for some reason or another. There may be simply not enough staff available to both sell roast beef sandwiches as well as clear and mop up spilled food and liquid. When the restaurant manager fails to keep an eye on what is happening in their own restaurant it is an accident waiting to happen.

Restaurant injuries can be quite serious depending on how the victim falls. Slipping and falling backwards could result in neck, back and spinal injuries while falling forwards could result in a strike to the head. Being injured at a restaurant could result in a long recovery time, especially if the injury is disabling.

Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

The first thing you may consider doing, once you have recovered sufficiently from your injuries, is contact the restaurant manager to complain. Unfortunately, managers may not listen to your account of the events and may even blame you.

The best thing you can do is to contact an experienced personal injury attorney who will decide if you have sufficient evidence to mount a personal injury claim against the person who caused your slip and fall accident which caused you to be injured at a Rex restaurant.
