Victims Of Restaurant Slip And Falls Can Seek Compensation

Slip And Fall Hazards In Restaurant Kitchens

When they visit a restaurant, diners are usually expecting to enjoy a calm yet appetizing meal. Unfortunately, in some cases, these expectations are completely and unexpectedly shattered.

While they may seem organized and controlled, beneath the surface restaurants are dynamic settings that are not without a number of slip and fall hazards. Not only do these pose a threat to the health and safety of the employees who are hustling back and forth, but it also endangers the customers.

When a lack of precaution results in dangerous conditions that lead to a falling accident in a restaurant, a legal claim may be one of the most effective ways for victims to seek compensation. Our slip and fall accident lawyers share more in the blog post below.

Slip & Falls In Restaurants

The kitchen of a restaurant during lunch hour or a Friday night service can be quite a hectic place. With sharp knives, hot pans, and fiery stoves abound, there exist more than a handful of ways in which the staff could be injured. Even then, slip and falls in restaurant kitchens remain one of the biggest culprits of injuries.

In these instances, victims of injuries can turn to the workers' comp system for support. All medical expenses should be covered by a worker's compensation claim, as can a portion of lost wages if certain requirements are met. This legal process can be quite complex and fraught with obstacles; let our attorneys handle your claim - if you don't win, we don't receive a penny.

In cases where the victim of the restaurant slip & fall is the customer, then a more direct lawsuit can be filed. More specifically, the legal claim is presented against the owner of the restaurant and likely to be defended by their insurance company. Restaurants often possess large (and expensive!) insurance policy to safeguard against this kind of incident.

However, insurance companies are likely to put up a fight before paying out benefits. Arming yourself with an experienced slip and fall lawyer can provide you the aggressive defense you need to get justice. Not sure if you've got a case? Contact our team today for a free case review.

Preventing Slip & Fall Accidents in Restaurants

Now that the potential for injury as well as for compensation is very real, what can be done by restaurant owners, managers, and employees to prevent these traumatizing incidents from occurring? Here are some examples of precautionary measures that could help:

  1. Establish a strict regiment of periodic checks across the locale to ensure that no dangerous conditions exist.
  2. Establish internal processes that shy away from creating dangerous environments. If risk cannot be completely mitigated, then the least risky method should be employed, along with supervision.
  3. Restaurant managers should periodically review established processes and determine if more risk-efficient methods exist. Technology is constantly advancing, which can lead to new and innovative solutions to long-standing problems.
  4. Require employees to wear the proper equipment while completing duties. Staff failing to adhere to safety equipment codes may be removed from specific duties if continuous trespassings occur.

Perhaps no other act can be more effective in reducing slip and fall hazards in restaurants them implementing a culture of attentiveness and caution towards the safety of team members and restaurant patrons alike.

Restaurant Slip & Fall Claims

It seems inevitable that tragedies must take place for productive change to take place. This is not different when it comes to restaurant slip and fall injuries. Fortunately, the law permits victims of these harrowing injuries to fight for justice.

Whatever your situation, if you are unsure whether have a case, you should seek legal insight. Time limits known as statutes of limitation exist, so don't let hesitation stand between you and the compensation you deserve.
