Jersey Mike's Subs fast food restaurant in Las Vegas 2017

I Got Hurt at Jersey Mike’s Subs

When it comes to accident lawyers, most people think that they’re reserved for huge motor vehicle accidents. In reality, the professionals help with a whole manner of accidents…and this includes slips and falls.

If you’ve been injured in a Jersey Mike’s Subs, for example, you may just be entitled to compensation. For the best chance of obtaining this compensation, you need a slip and fall accident lawyer.

Restaurant Slip and Fall Accidents

When heading out to Jersey Mike’s Subs, you think about what you’re going to order, who you’re going to meet, whether there will be a queue, and how long you’ll have to wait. Nobody considers the fact that they could slip and experience life-changing injuries. Unfortunately, thousands of people each year do suffer these injuries in Jersey Mike’s Subs and various other eateries around the United States.

Although we’ve focused heavily on customers in this guide so far, you could also be entitled to compensation if you’re injured as a member of staff too. Either way, contact The Injury Firm to talk through your case for a free legal consultation.

Restaurants like Jersey Mike’s Subs have a responsibility to keep everybody on-site safe from the hazards that can arise. This includes spillages, damaged stairs, wet floor tracked in from the rain outside, icy parking lots, poor lighting in parking lots, and other property damage. When a customer spills a drink on the floor, restaurants need to try to clear the spillage as soon as possible.

What if workers don’t spot the spillage? Well, a slip and fall accident lawyer will argue that the restaurant should have been aware. If the hazard was present on the floor for two hours before the incident, the restaurant was negligent and didn’t meet its responsibility. For that, they need to be held accountable.

Common Slip and Fall Injuries

Ultimately, the injuries experienced in a slip and fall accident depend on the severity of the accident itself. While some people are lucky enough to walk away with minor bruising, strains, and sprains, others break bones. It’s a natural reaction to put out one’s hand when falling, but this sadly leads to broken wrists.

Other common injuries after a slip and fall accident include:

  • Concussion
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Dislocated shoulders
  • Spinal damage
  • Nerve issues
  • Neck injuries
  • Knee damage

In serious cases, people bang their heads on the way down and this causes a concussion. Since the head and brain are such delicate areas, there’s a potential for paralysis and even death. For this reason, The Injury Firm, and their slip and fall accident lawyers, takes these cases very seriously.

Injuries for Employees

If you’re an employee at Jersey Mike’s Subs, you face different hazards from customers. For example, you could have been forced to use the meat slicer without the appropriate training. After your hand slipped, the slicer cut right through your hand and now you’re left with permanent scarring and disfigurement.

Alternatively, it might be that you fell off a ladder, suffered burns, or cut yourself in another way. Later, we’ll investigate the potential of workers’ compensation.  

Recovering Damages

When people talk about compensation, quite often they have revenge in mind. However, the goal of compensation is to recover damages and costs that occurred because of the accident. Generally speaking, this includes doctor bills, ambulance costs, surgeries and tests, physiotherapy (and other medical appointments), property damage, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other damages.

In court, it’s all about proving that the restaurant either knew of the hazard or should have known about the hazard according to their duty of care. Don’t worry, your slip and fall accident lawyer will gather evidence and speak to expert testimonies on your behalf.

What can you do to help your case? Keep all documentation including medical bills, property damage quotes, and police incident reports (not applicable in all cases). Additionally, you should take pictures of the accident scene as well as your injuries. Some people also help their cause with a diary explaining how the injuries affect day-to-day living.

 Thankfully, this is the easiest step since all restaurants have a responsibility to keep all visitors safe. From here, we’ll need to prove that it was reasonable to assume that the restaurant should have cleared the hazard. If the spillage was present for only a few seconds, it would be unfair to expect a restaurant to be aware of the hazard. On the other hand, an unattended spillage for one hour is a different story.

The next step is to prove that the hazard caused your incident, and by extension, your injuries. You cannot claim for pre-existing injuries, only those caused by the negligence of the company. Once again, there’s no need to panic because this is something that your slip and fall accident lawyer will do.

If you were an employee, the case is slightly different because it will go through workers’ compensation instead. In many cases, employees don’t push any further when they learn that a claim is denied after suffering an injury at work. However, an attorney can present additional evidence and prove that you deserve compensation for getting injured while performing work-related duties.

The Injury Firm

If you weren’t to blame for the accident, you shouldn’t have to deal with the damages. We’ll claim for both current and future medical bills so that you don’t have to claim later. Contact The Injury Firm today!
