It’s not fair that you should become encumbered with having to pay for the expense of being treated for injuries that were not your fault. Even if you visit somewhere like a restaurant it is quite possible that you could wind up having an accident that was due to careless behavior on the part of staff working there.
Many slip and fall accidents outside the home are due to negligence on the part of someone else entirely.
Fortunately, because of state legislation, as long as you can prove who was at fault, you may at the very least be able to recover any medical expenses and lost income due to an accident that someone else caused. If in doubt about your rights, talk to an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as you can.
It’s possible to be involved in a slip and fall accident practically anywhere, even in a sub shop, but this is unlikely as long as the management at the shop are aware that customer safety is an important aspect of their service.
When management at one of these places is not as good as it should be, that’s when an accident is more likely to happen. Most slip and fall accidents are due to wet or greasy floor surfaces.
If any of the staff at the shop know that there is a slippery area, it should be cleaned or cleared up as soon as possible. It’s when this doesn’t happen that accidents of the slip and fall variety take place.
It’s hard to be specific about slip and fall injuries in places shops because they can be very varied, according to the circumstances of the accident.
The usual slip and fall injuries that are possible anywhere like broken bones and sprains and strains are compounded by possible scalding or burns if the person who slips or trips up is holding hot food or drinks at the time.
Compensation for your Injuries
If you were injured at a sub shop and believe that it was due to negligence on part of one or more of the employees or manager, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim.
This will not be easy and it is unlikely that you will succeed unless you have sufficient proof of liability. If you have sufficient proof or reliable witnesses, your best option is to discuss the accident with a personal injury lawyer who has sufficient experience in restaurant slip and fall accidents.
The lawyer can help you decide whether to go ahead with a claim and pursue legal action on your behalf.
