Since my settlement, I have continued to focus on keeping my weight down and my core strong. Following the collision, Ellie’s care was managed by her primary care doctor at Virginia Mason Medical Center. I answered the phones, I did the articles, and I prepared the taxes.

Personal Injuries in Restaurants
Property owners own their customers and visitors the highest level of care. Meaning that they must do whatever it takes to avoid any accidents. All property owners and managers are compelled by the law to protect their clients and visitors. The violation of such duty leads to a premises liability claim.
As restaurants are subjected to the state, they must stick to national and local laws. Meaning that if they violate any law or regulation, the agencies or authorities can sue them. The fine ranges from money, to temporary or permanent closure. On this occasion all the money from the claim goes straight to the national or local funds, so you won’t get a dime from it.
Whether you decide to hire a lawyer or not, here is the evidence that you must gather. Ask for medical help: Like in all accident situations, the first thing to do is to get medical attention. The more extensive; the better, this way you will know the extension of your injuries and the treatment to heal them. Also, the medical report will be useful when setting the compensation amount.
If either the owner or the manager fails to prevent the accident, they are responsible for the consequences. But you must provide evidence that they could prevent the accident. For example, the floor was wet for several hours before a customer slips and hits his head, by asking a waiter to clean it, the accident would not have happened.
Don’t wait too long before making the claim! Start talking with our injury law firm today and let us help you in this process.
