Restaurant Negligence Resulting In An Injury

When you decide to take a night out on the town and enjoy a meal instead of cooking at home, the last thing you expect to leave with instead of a full stomach is an injury. But it happens. Burns from plates, slip and falls from unmanaged floors, lacerations from broken dishes, and even allergic reaction to food served after you informed your waiter or waitress are amongst the most common injuries at restaurants. If any of these things happen to you or your loved one, there is a possibility that you can file a personal injury claim against the restaurant according to a burn injury lawyer from our friends with the Law Offices of Andrew Lynch.

Of course, to file a claim there must be a way to prove there was negligence on the restaurants end and there are a few things that must be proven:

  • The restaurant had an obligation to fulfill in ensuring the safety of their guests.
  • The restaurant was unsuccessful in satisfying this duty.
  • Because of the restaurant failure to meet the obligation, an injury was caused to the victim.

Much like several other personal injury cases, these factors must be established to pursue a claim against the restaurant. When there is an organization that welcomed other people, these places have a responsibility to visitors to ensure their safety. Due to several guests entering and exiting the restroom, there is a huge likelihood of wet floors due to hand washing. If the restroom is not attended to, there is a possibility that someone enters the restroom and slips on the floor. Because of this negligence, the restaurant may be held liable for failing to ensure the safety of their floors.

The restaurant is held accountable for their employee’s lack of care as soon as they are employed. For example, in the event that a customer tells an employee that they are allergic to something and it is brought with their food in spite of this, that customer finishes the dish and suffers an allergic reaction, the employee is not responsible, the restaurant is. There are instances when the employee will be held accountable, but not many.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or allergic reactions due to the carelessness of a restaurant and its employee, it is imperative to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney in your area. After analyzing the details of the incident, an attorney will be able to build your case and fight for you in a courtroom to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for your suffering.

Reach out as soon as the incident occurs, to ensure that everything goes along to all legal standings so that you may continue to pursue a case against those that were negligent and caused your injury. A lawyer will represent you and gather all the evidence needed for your case. Find a knowledgeable attorney near you to take on your case and to ask any questions you may have about how your case works.
