Help! I Got Hurt at Round Table Pizza Parlor! What Do I Do?*

Slip and Fall Accidents at a Pizza Parlor or Restaurant

Slip and fall accidents rarely make headlines unless a well known person or celebrity is involved and yet they are the most common type of accident after traffic accidents.

Slipping over or tripping up usually leads to a fall and if you are not expecting it to happen, you could end up with a bad injury, at least one that puts you in hospital for a few days.

Who was to blame for the accident? Whenever you are on private or government owned property, whether it is a city sidewalk, a store, bar or restaurant, you expect to be able to move around in safety.

If there are any hazards around, you expect someone to warn you about them or remove them as soon as they can. If you are injured, you may face unexpected bills.

This is the time you may need to take legal action to compensate you for injuries caused by someone else’s negligence.

Injuries Possible After a Slip and Fall Accident

Restaurant slip and fall accidents fortunately are rarely fatal, but that doesn’t mean they are never serious. Serious injuries can happen because the cause of the accident is not obvious. The unexpected nature of the accident may mean an awkward fall.

If you land on your back or hit your head on something hard or sharp then you can do serious damage. Spinal damage can even lead to partial paralysis.

Traumatic brain injuries can mean very long recovery periods. These are some of the worst possible outcomes and if the accident was caused by the restaurant in any way you should be seriously injured considering taking legal action.

Legal Action After a Restaurant Accident

Taking legal action is far from being straightforward. To be successful claiming any compensation, you will be required to prove that the accident was not your fault and somehow was caused by a negligent employee or as a result of negligence on the part of the management.

A successful claim may be possible if you tripped over a pile of discarded pizza boxes which had been thrown on the floor of the pizza parlor. It still needs to be shown that the junk had not been cleared away even though employees knew it could become a hazard.

Use an Experienced Attorney With Your Claim

It’s unlikely you will have much luck convincing the restaurant or their insurers that they are liable for your injuries. You stand a better chance if you contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible after the accident.
