Slip and Fall Accidents in a Smashburger Restaurant*

It is an assumed fact that no one leaves their home or workplace to go to a restaurant or grocery store and into the process they slip and fall and injure themselves. Unfortunately, these types of accidents are quite common because management of grocery stores and restaurants may not have spent enough time ensuring that possible slip and fall hazards such as split liquid, cartons and trash left on floors are not cleared up on time or customers are not warned of potential slip and fall obstacles.

Every year there are up to 2 million slips and falls throughout the United States many of which occur in public places. More than 500,000 are admitted to hospital for injuries caused in slips and falls.

If you end up in hospital after slipping and falling in a restaurant and you believe your injuries could have been prevented if the management of the restaurant had been more careful you should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as you are able as you may be able to file a compensation claim from the restaurant which will cover you for your hospital expenses and loss of earnings while recovering.

Common Injuries in a Burger Restaurant

You would not expect there to be too many potential hazards in a burger restaurant but they are busy places and drinks and food commonly get spilled on the floor. Busy staff may not be allocated the time to clear them up. Falling on mayonnaise, for example, left on the floor can cause serious head injuries if an unsuspecting customer slips and bangs his or her head on the corner of a table or chair. There is a possibility of concussion and brain damage which may need lengthy periods in hospital. A broken arm or wrist could happen when the victim tries to break the fall.

A Lawsuit Could Result From a Restaurant Accident

All publicly accessed property is required by law to be safe at all times for the public to use. If you have been injured in a restaurant and you can prove beyond doubt that the manager of the restaurant should have known about and cleared the hazard that caused your injury, this offers you the opportunity to file a personal injury lawsuit so that you can recover damages from the negligence that caused your injury. The manager of the burger restaurant should ensure someone is available to check the restaurant for hazards and clear them promptly.

Successful Lawsuits May Depend on Help From a Lawyer

An experienced slip and fall attorney can help you file a personal injury lawsuit against a restaurant if you, or a family member has been injured during a visit. He or she will help to ensure any claim will cover all the financial hardship you have to bear as a result of your injuries.
