Slip and Fall Injuries in a Steak Escape Restaurant*

Have you slipped and injured yourself in a restaurant, café, or bar? Do you know what caused the accident? Nasty injuries can be unexpectedly expensive. There may be bills for medical treatment and if you had to stay at home or in a hospital as a result of the injuries, you may lose some or all of your income for that period.

This doesn’t mean you must suffer financially if someone else was to blame for the accident at any place. You may be able to recover the costs of your injury or injuries if you file a personal injury lawsuit against a steakhouse so that your financial burden will lessen. This is not an easy task and if you are confident that you were the victim of negligence, you are advised to talk to an attorney with experience in the type of accident you had.

Injuries at a Steak Restaurant

The most common accidents in a fast food restaurant are:

  • burns and scalds, mostly from spilled hot food and drinks
  • slip and fall or trip and fall accidents, mostly caused by hazards at the floor level

Many fast food restaurants use floor surfaces that are smooth and easy to keep clean. The usual procedure when cleaning is about to take place or during cleaning is to prop up a highly visible sign warning all customers that the surface is slippery. If an employee neglects to do this, or the management neglects to instruct employees to do this, then restaurant patrons could easily slip and injure themselves.

It is hard to predict exactly how someone could be injured if they slip and fall over because there are so many variables. The extent of the injuries could depend on what the accident victim hit as they fell over. Were they holding any food or drinks when they fell? This may mean a burn or scald if they spill their food, and this could amplify the injuries they receive through no fault of their own.

How a Personal Injury Attorney Can Help You if You File a Claim

If you are injured at a restaurant and are sure that it was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim against the steakhouse. It is important to establish sound evidence that demonstrates who or what was responsible for your injuries. When considering making a personal injury claim, a knowledgeable and experienced accident attorney can make a big difference to the chances of achieving a successful outcome.
