No one slip and fall case is the same; there are several factors in determining whether you have a legitimate slip and fall claim including:
- What was your purpose for being on the property

- Did the property owner know, or should have known about the dangerous condition
- How long the dangerous condition existed
- Did the property owner act reasonably
- Was there proper warning
- Were there other variables, such as improper lighting, which led to the slip and fall
- Were there any building or safety code violations

Parking Lot Trip and Falls
The average case value of injury for a trip and fall in the parking lot at a McDonalds is between $30,000 and $70,000, depending on the seriousness of the injuries. If you trip and fall in a McDonald’s parking lot, you may have a serious injury. You may have fallen on left over debris that was left by another customer. The management of the McDonalds is responsible to go around the inside and outside of the building on a regular basis, to ensure that the inside and outside premises are clear and clean for the benefit of the customers. If this duty is breached and there is debris or trash that people can trip on, then you can sustain a serious injury as a result of these issues.
It is not the customer’s responsibility to go around the building and pick up the trash and debris left on the ground at the premises. You can see how ridiculous that would be!

Slip and Falls Due to Greasy Oily Ground
The average case value of injury for a slip and fall due to greasy oil on the ground at a McDonalds is between $20,000 and $50,000, depending on the seriousness of the injuries. The ground at a McDonalds can be greasy in many different situations, such as when the employees wrongfully dispose of the grease generated by the cooking and preparing of food in the restaurant. If the employees are negligent and are sloppy in the outside disposal of grease and residues from the fry cookers in the restaurant, this will make for a very slippery and greasy parking area, walking area and general business outside area of the restaurant.
People who slip on grease often don’t “know what hit them” as they fall to the ground and never know it was grease that tripped them up. A small grease pile can cause major damage, if someone falls into it by accident. Grease is not pink or blue, it is the same color as the pavement in most cases, and you can fall into a grease slick without ever knowing that you are about to suffer a serious injury as a result of your fall. For this reason, you need to give us a call right away, if this has happened to you.
