Have you or a member of your family been injured after slipping in a restaurant, café, bar or store? There is no reason why you should have to bear the financial consequences of a serious injury by yourself if the accident was not your fault.
Laws exist in every state that permit a personal injury claim to be made against an at-fault party to recover the cost of medical treatment and lost income. An attorney with experience in premises liability law can explain your rights clearly and act on your behalf if legal action is recommended.
How You Could Wind Up Being Injured at a Taco Restaurant
Most people go to a fast food restaurant to have something to eat and never consider the possibility of an accident. If there is any concern at all, it might be the remote chance of getting food poisoning. The dangers of slipping on a greasy or wet floor rarely cross a customer’s mind.
Accidents are unlikely if there are no hazards present, or if the restaurant staff warns the customers about any potential hazards that could cause a slip and fall accident. Poor management practices, wherever they are, mean a greater chance of accidents and subsequent injuries.
Injuries may only be slight, in which case it would not be worthwhile to pursue a personal injury claim against Taco Bueno or wherever the accident took place. If the injuries are more serious, such as broken limbs or dental injuries, then it may be advisable to file a personal injury claim. You can talk to a personal injury attorney about your legal options.
Legal Action if Injured
If you are planning on a restaurant personal injury claim, you should first talk to a personal injury attorney who has had experience with slip and fall accidents in restaurants or similar places.
The success of these types of claims depends on sufficient evidence being available to prove that negligence was what caused the slip and fall accident. This is what an attorney does for a living and usually they will provide this service for you on a contingency fee basis, meaning that there are no upfront legal fees.
