Can You Sue?
Do you have the right to sue Taco Bell for the harm that you or a member of your family suffered in a slip and fall accident or any other accident on the premises of Taco Bell? Yes, you could sue. Your right to sue is based on the concept of premise liability. Based on premise liability, all property owners have a duty of care towards their guests. They have a duty to ensure that their entire premises are free of hazards or dangerous conditions that could contribute to incidents. If property owners fail to keep their premises safe, they could directly contribute to incidents which could lead to injuries. When this occurs – when a guest is harmed because of a property owner’s failure to keep the premise safe – the property owner could be liable for all harm suffered and could be sued.

What Should You Do?
After a Taco Bell injury, there are a number of things that affected parties should do to prepare to pursue their claims. Consider some of the recommendations listed below:
- Seek medical care immediately (if your injuries are severe, this should be top priority)
- Take photos of all your injuries
- Take photos of the hazard that caused the incident
- Take photos of the scene of the incident
- File an incident report with Taco Bell (request a copy of the report)
- Speak to witnesses and collect their contact information
- Gather any surveillance video that captured your incident
- Collect all medical records
- Collect all records of property damage
- Seek legal assistance with a Taco Bell accident lawyer as soon as possible
File Your Claim Quickly
As explained above, you could have the right to pursue an injury claim. However, you could lose your right to file a claim if you fail to file your claim quickly enough. This is because all claims are subject to a statute of limitations. A statute of limitations determines the total length of time that claimants have to file their claims. If claimants do not file their claims quickly enough, they risk losing their right to sue for any harm suffered.
In California, personal injury claims are subject to a two-year statute of limitations; therefore, claimants have two years to pursue their claims. Based on the details surrounding the claim, however, certain exceptions to the statute of limitations could apply (which could pause the applicable deadline). To ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the time that you have to sue, do not hesitate to contact the experts at our firm immediately. Our Taco Bell injury attorneys will help you file your claim on time.
