Slip and Fall at Flanigan’s Seafood Bar and Grill

Slip and fall injuries are more common than you may think, but that doesn’t make them any less devastating when they do happen. These injuries can range from relatively minor to potentially life-altering, which is why you need a personal injury attorney on your side. They can help get the restaurant slip and fall settlements that you are entitled to. Reading on, you can understand these types of accidents so that you can get the best outcomes possible for your case.

Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents in Restaurants

Patrons to restaurants, and any other establishment, have the right to expect that they will be safe while on the premises. Restaurants have a specific legal duty to properly maintain the premises where they operate their business to ensure the safety of their patrons. They must regularly inspect the premises and take reasonable care to ensure that there are no hazards and if there are, they should be remedied within a reasonable amount of time. If the restaurants fail in this duty, they may be responsible for your injuries.

Restaurants do have some inherent risks due to the nature of the business. There’s a lot of foot traffic and people have to navigate while carrying food and beverages. This is a recipe for disaster when it comes to slip and fall accidents.

  • Spilled beverages that cause a wet floor
  • Wet floors
  • Uneven or damaged sidewalks outside of the restaurant
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Poorly maintained parking lots/entryways
  • Uneven flooring/carpeting
  • Damaged flooring/carpeting
  • Rain being tracked into entryways and on sidewalk

These are just some of the common causes of slip and fall accidents at Flanigan’s and other restaurants.

Common Types of Slip and Fall Injury at Restaurants

You expect to be safe when you go out to places, especially when you are enjoying a meal out at a restaurant. However, there are plenty of safety hazards that can potentially occur at restaurants that can lead to injury. These injuries include:

  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Broken/fractured bones
  • Sprains
  • TBIs (traumatic brain injuries) and concussions

If you are injured, what happens next can determine the outcomes of your case.

What to Do if You Slip and Fall in a Flanigan’s

There are specific steps that you should take immediately following your restaurant slip and fall accident. These steps are important because it can significantly help your chances of winning your case so that you can get the compensation that you deserve.

Speak to Employee and Manager

You should immediately attract the attention of an employee. You want to speak to the manager as soon as possible after the slip and fall accident. They will write an accident report, which you should request a copy of. This report should include a very detailed account of the incident, including if there were any other patrons who witnessed the accident. This accident report is essential to your case, as it can be hard to prove that the accident actually happened, and that the restaurant was at fault for the accident.

Take Pictures

It can be overwhelming when you have a slip and fall accident, but taking pictures and/or recording the scene and any injuries you have incurred can make a major difference in how successful your claim is. Take pictures of your injuries and the area where you had your slip and fall accident. This includes the hazard that caused your accident. Having as much documentation as possible about your accident can help strengthen your case, improving your outcomes. You should also take a look around to see if you notice any surveillance cameras where you had the accident. This camera may have captured the incident, which can further help your case.

Are There Any Witnesses?

Did anyone witness the slip and fall accident? If so, you need to talk to them. Getting testimony from an eyewitness can make your slip and fall case incredibly strong. Get as much information as you can from them, including their names and contact information. This allows your lawyer to get in touch with them for your case.

Get Medical Help

One of the most important things that you need to remember is to accept any medical help that has been offered. If you refused medical treatment offered by the manager, they will make note of this and it will show that your injuries are not as severe as you claim that they are. Additionally, this is a concern because you may be more injured than you realize. Just because you feel fine now, that doesn’t mean that you won’t feel the injury later. Adrenaline and shock can take affect and prevent you from feeling how severe your injuries really are.

This is especially important when you consider that some of these injuries can be very serious, which is why it’s so important to get treated as quickly as possible.
