Restaurant Accident Information

A restaurant usually sees dozens of customers each day, perhaps hundreds if it is a fast food establishment. Because of this, there is an increased risk of accidents. A simple problem like spilled ice can now place many people at risk. It is important that restaurants take proper measures to protect its customers in the event of an accident and to warn them of any possible hazards. It is up to the property owners and managers to ensure that customers are protected and it is the responsibility of the workers to carry out these actions. Some of the ways that slip and falls can happen at restaurants include:

  • Suelos mojados: Workers often clean the floor at restaurants in between busy times of day, especially if there was a spill of some kind. They need to put up wet floor signs; if they do not, individuals may easily slip and fall on the sections. Many times, leaky mop buckets can cause wet floors near bathrooms and storage rooms, and customers should be wary when walking past them.
  • Spilled food and drink: At a restaurant, it is no surprise that the most common cause of slip and falls is the spilled food and drink. Soft drinks may spill at the soda fountain, trays of food may get overturned, waiters may drop bowls of soup while going to the table, cooks may knock over meals, and pieces of food may tumble from plates and rest underfoot. A simple step could lead to a slip, which could be extremely dangerous for some individuals, like waiters, who are often laden down with dishware.
  • Tables and chairs: For restaurants that have loose tables and chairs, people could trip on them if they are not pushed in or if they jut out into aisles. They may not be put back into place in between customers coming and going, and as a result, anyone could fall from the hazard.
  • Wires: Wires may sometimes be run underneath tables and be kept close to the molding on the walls, but they may occasionally come loose and pose a tripping hazard.
  • Other people: A lot of people are often moving around at restaurants. A patron ay trip or collide with a worker, leading to a fall, or someone may trip over someone else’s exposed foot in an aisle. They can also slip on misplaced jackets and sweaters.
  • Damaged parking lot: The parking lot of a restaurant must be properly maintained by the property owner. There cannot be any potential dangers or risks, and if there are, he must take care to fix them as quickly as he can. The duty of care for customers in a restaurant does not merely stop where the walls of the restaurant end.

We can help you handle your slip and fall accident if you were hurt while at a restaurant.

When restaurant owners fail to keep their parking lots safe, they are breaching their duty of care and can be liable for any harm resulting from incidents. If you were injured in a restaurant parking lot slip and fall accident, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our law firm as soon as possible – we can help you better understand your legal options.

Detalles de la responsabilidad civil de los locales

A property owner must take care to not place anyone who enters the property in harm’s way. This includes three different categories of people: invitees, licensees, and trespassers. Invitees are those who enter the property to exchange services, such as money for food. They are to be given the highest duty of care and are expressly allowed and entreated to enter the premises. Licensees, on the other hand are not giving some sort of exchange and are not there for a contractual reason; instead, they can be considered social guests or those o enter the property lawfully to take care of personal business. Trespassers, on the other hand, do not have any legal right to be on the property. Still, the owner cannot purposely set traps to harm trespassers, and if he is aware that people are trespassing, he cannot go out of his way to harm them if they are not causing any further damage. In restaurants, most customers are invitees, and must be protected at all costs. Commercial property owners can be targeted in a lawsuit if an accident happens because of the owner’s negligence. Some ways he can be negligent include:

  • Causing the spill, placing the objects in the way of people, or else directly contributing to an accident or risky or dangerous area
  • Electing to not do anything to fix a dangerous area despite having knowledge of it
  • Not having knowledge of the risk or danger but should have been aware of it, as a reasonable person who had common sense would have

A restaurant owner must make sure that there are no dangers and that any risks are immediately alleviated. His workers should be diligent and should not delay in cleaning up spills or wet floors. If any accidents happen, the company can be held liable for the damages ensuing from the accident.

What to Do after a Slip and Fall Accident

Victims of slip and fall accidents should take care to follow these steps to have the best chance at staying safe and winning a claim. It can be confusing to do anything other than rest after an accident, but it is crucial that you act quickly. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to succeed with your lawsuit.

  • Immediately seek medical treatment for your injuries, even if you do not feel you were too hurt or hurt at all. Some injuries may not show up until a few days after the incident, so it is important that you identify them quickly. Waiting can cause the insurance company to declare that you were lying about your damages or that you were hurt elsewhere and tried to use the accident as a scapegoat.
  • Haz fotos de tus heridas and any damages you suffered
  • Photograph the area that was a risk, whether it is a wet floor, raised step, crack in the sidewalk, or anything else
  • Request statements and records from any eyewitnesses to tell what happened
  • Presentar un informe de incidente with the restaurant that will allow you to show that you made the accident known to the right party
  • Póngase en contacto con un skilled lawyer who can help you file your lawsuit against the restaurant

Length of Time to File a Claim

You only have two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit against the restaurant for damages resulting from a slip and fall injury. In order for you to file a claim in the first place, you must be able to show that you were owed a duty of care that was breached, which resulted in an accident leading to physical harm. Many people try to file claims when they do not have any injuries, which cannot be successful. You should always seek a lawyer and file a claim as quickly as you can. However, the statute of limitations of two years can be extended if you were underage at the time of the accident, if the defendant left the state, or if you were severely injured and couldn’t file a lawsuit. A lawyer can thus tell you when your deadline would begin again. In these examples, it would be from the date you turned 18; when the defendant returned to the state; and when you returned to functional health.

What is Your Case Worth?

It is normal to have questions about the possible value of your claim, including some of the following:

  • What is the average case value of restaurant slip and fall accidents?
  • How much will a restaurant pay for a restaurant slip and fall case?

It is important to note that the value of your claim is strictly based on the details surrounding your lawsuit. These details can include the type of injuries suffered, the severity of the injuries, the extent of treatment needed, etc. In general, the more severe the injuries, the higher the value of the case. Cases with only minor injuries will always be worth much less than cases with moderate or severe injuries. In general, cases with moderate injuries can be worth up to $350,000. Likewise, cases with severe injuries can be worth over $750,000 – and sometimes reach values over a million dollars.

For more information about the possible value of your restaurant parking lot slip and fall lawsuit, do not hesitate to contact the experts at our firm as soon as possible. Our lawyers can help you better understand how much your case can be worth.


What You Can Earn

You may have missed time at work, so your lost wages can be reimbursed. If you owned any property that was damaged in the accident, the costs could be reimbursed.

Opinión de un cliente de DTLA

"¡Farid fue genial! Mi novio y yo lo contratamos en abril de 2017, ya que fuimos golpeados por detrás en la I101 . Nuestro coche fue total y estábamos gravemente heridos. Por recomendación de un familiar, nos arriesgamos y nos pusimos en contacto con Farid para que nos ayudara con el proceso. Después de todo el calvario, lo último que queríamos hacer era lidiar con las compañías de seguros."
