Personal Injury Cases at Restaurants

In Uncategorized by Matador Sol

The last thing you likely think about when you go to a restaurant is the possibility of getting injured. There have been many personal injury cases recorded from restaurants, though. Anywhere has the potential to be the site of an injury that was caused due to the negligence of someone else. No matter where you get hurt, you need to contact a personal injury lawyer, like a lawyer from The Law Office of Daniel E. Stuart, P.A., as soon as possible to represent you in your case. 

Glass or Sharp Objects in Your Food

Surprisingly, there can be mistakes that cause something dangerous to end up in your dish. You may cut your mouth or swallow something sharp that causes damage. If this happens, you need to take a photo of the item you found in your food and pictures of any injuries sustained. You should speak with the manager of the restaurant right away to have it on record and begin figuring out the next steps to take in getting compensation for this. You need to contact a lawyer as soon as possible who will have your best interest at heart throughout the process. 

Slip and Fall Accidents on the Property

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere. A personal injury case surrounding this will all depend on whether or not you can prove negligence was somehow involved. Some situations that are incredibly dangerous and could count for a case include situations where a wet floor was not properly marked, an unsuspecting stair or dip in the floor is not labeled, or if there is an object somewhere it should not be. If there was danger that was not pointed out to the patrons, there may be room for a personal injury case. You should always try to take a picture of the scene of the accident the day it happens, if possible. This will be valuable proof in court, especially if the restaurant takes measures to fix the issue that caused your fall after you leave. 

Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer As Soon As Possible

Never hesitate to reach out to a personal injury lawyer. There is a statute of limitations in place in every single state that makes it impossible to file if you wait too long. You do not have to do all of the work right away, but your lawyer will get the ball rolling so that you can have a strong case prepared when the time comes to file or go to court. He or she will be able to let you know if a settlement is fair or not, as well as if it seems that you have a case worth pursuing. As we mentioned, it is important that some kind of negligence was at play to make something a valid personal injury case. An experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to tell you if what you went through at a restaurant could constitute as this.
