It’s no fun suffering from an injury or injuries when going to get something to eat or drink. You may be the most agile, careful person in the world, but you could still slip and injure yourself seriously if you are somewhere unfamiliar and the place that you are in is a hazard zone.
If you are injured in a smoothies bar due to the management’s negligence, for instance, there is no reason why you should suffer financially as a result of your injuries. You may be able to recover all the costs associated with the injuries if you make a personal injury claim against Robeks or whoever is responsible for your accident
How a Trip to a Smoothie Shop Could Leave You Injured
It may be difficult imagining how you could be injured and why you should be thinking about making a personal injury claim. The fact is that some accidents, especially slip and fall type accidents, can happen just about anywhere.
These accidents are seldom fatal, but they can still be quite serious. Messy floors, wet floors, uneven floor surfaces, obstructions, and other potential hazards are frequently encountered in a fast food outlet.
If the store or restaurant is well-managed, hazards that could cause an injury are usually dealt with right away. If the hazard cannot be removed, a warning sign should be erected. It is the absence of these things that leads to slip and fall or trip and fall injuries.
Most people wouldn’t bother with a personal injury lawsuit unless the injuries were sufficiently serious. That means things like:
- broken bones, especially the arms, wrists, and hands
- dislocated major joints
- burns or scalds from spilled food or drinks
- gashes and deep cuts that could become infected
- serious back and head injuries
When an Experienced Lawyer Can Help You with a Personal Injury Claim
Are you considering making a personal injury claim because of an unexpected injury there? Was the accident unavoidable, or should it not have happened if the staff at the shop were more careful?
If the answer is yes, you are strongly advised to contact a personal injury lawyer first. An experienced lawyer can help you determine whether the owner is responsible for your accident, determine whether and how to settle your claim, and (ideally) get you the compensation you deserve.
