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.

Following a four-day jury trial, Mr. Armstrong was acquitted of the conspiracy and tax evasion charges. After a contentious sentencing hearing against the United States, our team convinced the Court to place Mr. Armstrong on probation with a period of house arrest rather than imposing a sentence in the federal penitentiary as requested by the Government.In ,State v. Norman Clark,, Clark was facing two counts of First Degree Murder and two counts of felony murder related to the death of an ex-girlfriend and her unborn child. Following a hotly contested trial, the jury was ultimately deadlocked and unable to reach a verdict unanimously resulting in a mistrial.
