Slip (or trip) and fall accidents are relatively common and in many cases are a result of a negligent property owner who fails to ensure a safe environment for members of the public who legitimately use the space provided. This could be a restaurant, a bar, a store, or even a park or sidewalk.
If an accident does take place in any of these sorts of places and it is not the fault of the person who actually has the accident, then the property owner may be liable for the victim’s injuries. If you have been injured through no fault of your own, contact a personal injury attorney to discuss your legal options.
Why a Personal Injury Claim May be Necessary
A personal injury claim against Umami Burger, or any other burger chain, may be a sensible option if you are sure that your injuries were a result of negligence on the part of an employee at the restaurant or mistakes that the management made when you were there. Slip and fall injuries may be quite serious, depending on just how bad the fall is. There are a number of variables that affect just what sort of injuries can occur.
- Was the person holding something hot in their hands or on a tray when they slipped?
- What did they hit as they fell over?
- Did they land flat on their back?
- Did they hit their head?
The severity of the injury or injuries will determine how much medical treatment is necessary and whether a return to work is possible or not. All of these factors will then determine how much needs to be demanded in a potential personal injury claim against Umami Burger, or any other party.
Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer if Injured at a Burger Restaurant
It is not a good idea to rely on negotiating with a restaurant owner or their insurance company by yourself if injured on the restaurant’s premises. The tendency is to blame you for your own accident, even if you think that the evidence is straightforward. It is advisable to contact a personal injury lawyer with experience in premises liability to discuss your accident and whether you have a good chance of making a successful claim if the lawyer helps you pursue legal action against the at-fault party.
