Injured While Dining in a Restaurant? Read This First
Restaurant Accident Lawyers
Patrons frequenting restaurants elect to dine out with the assumption that the establishment they are entering is safe. In fact, the thought of a restaurant being unsafe likely never crosses a person’s mind when selecting where they’d like to have their next meal. The cold reality is that, in many cases, some restaurants are dangerous due to the negligence of their property owners. Under premises liability law, any injury sustained either in a restaurant or on the property of the restaurant can be pursued via a claim of personal injury against the lot owner if negligence is established.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of an accident while at a restaurant then seek the service of the experienced restaurant accident lawyers here at the law office of Wettermark & Keith. With over thirty years of extensive trial experience handling premises liability cases, our top injury attorneys have the skills needed to make your case a success. We cover restaurant accidents in Alabama, Tennessee and the Florida Panhandle area.
As with other types of premises liability cases, negligence needs to be shown in order for a case to be successfully processed. Restaurant owners owe what is known as a “Duty of Care” to the patrons who frequent their establishment. This duty of care states that they need to keep their facility reasonably safe and take measures to ensure that customers do not incur any injuries.
When a duty of care is breached, typically by an act of negligence, those injured by the actions (or inaction) of the restaurant owner may pursue a claim of personal injury against the owner for damages they have suffered. Examples of situations that contribute to restaurant accidents in Alabama, Tennessee, and Florida, include:
- Slippery, unmarked floors
- Sharp edges on tables, booths, or chairs
- Damaged or broken chairs
- Unsecured overhead objects, such as light fixtures
- Uneven or broken flooring/tiles
- Frayed carpeting
- Untethered cords
- Overly hot, unmarked beverages
- Failing to warn customers of any unapparent dangers within the establishment
- Seek the service of our top premises liability attorneys today if you or someone close to you has incurred an injury in a restaurant accident. Victims of these accidents may be entitled to substantial financial compensation.
