Slip and Fall at The Licking Restaurant

Slip and fall accidents in restaurants are more common than you would like to think that they are. When you think about it, restaurants like The Licking Restaurant make for the perfect disaster when it comes to slip and fall accidents. If you do have a slip and fall accident, you should contact a slip and fall attorney to help you through your case.

What Can Cause a Slip and Fall Accident at The Licking Restaurant

Just think about going to a restaurant. When you really consider it, there are a lot of hazards around a restaurant. If there is a hazard and the restaurant had a reasonable amount of time to remedy these hazards, then you have a right to receive compensation for your injuries. You also have a right to compensation if there was no warning about the potential hazards that could lead to your slip and fall accident.

There are many reasons why a slip and fall accident can happen in a restaurant, including:

  • Food and beverage spills
  • Rain
  • Not properly using the cleaning products
  • No slip-resistant flooring or mats
  • Not properly using/not using “wet floor” signs at all
  • Torn and damaged carpeting and flooring
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Grease spilled on the flooring
  • Furniture obstructing walkways

These are just some of the most common causes of why slip and fall accidents happen at a restaurant.

When a slip and fall accident does happen, this can lead to some potentially serious injuries. Some injuries that can occur include:

It’s essential that as soon as you have a slip and fall accident, you get the attention of the staff and management. You also need to be sure to document as much as you can about the accident, including taking pictures of where the accident happened and your injuries. It’s very important that you do accept medical attention when offered to ensure that you can get the treatment that you need for the best chances of recovery after your accident. Even if you don’t feel like you’re hurt, you may have more serious injuries than you think you do. It’s important to make sure that you aren’t more seriously hurt.

Understanding the Duty of Care at Restaurants

According to laws associated with Premises Liability, a restaurant does have a duty of care when it comes to people on the property. However, the legal duty of care is dependent on the category of the person injured. What this means is why the person was on the premises. Each person is placed within 3 categories: invitee, licensee, and trespasser. This section will break down these different types of guests.

  • Invitee

Invitee is a term that is used to describe a person that the tenant and/or landowner has invited onto the premises. This is for both invitees who are expressly invited or the invitation was implicated for a lawful presence. In regard to a restaurant, this means any patron who visits the restaurant for food or drink. These are people who get the highest level of protection, with a promise that the premises are safe for invitees.

  • Licensee

Licensee is a term that is used for those who come onto the premises for their own benefit, but this benefit is not to transact with the restaurant. What this means is that if you are on the premises to use the bathroom, but not to buy any food or beverages, you are a licensee. These guests only have basic rights where the business cannot commit any acts of wanton or willful injury.

  • Trespasser

A trespasser has the least amount of rights under premises liability. These are people who enter the property without the consent or invitation of the owner. This is a person who is not legally permitted to be on the premises. There is no duty of care that is entitled to a trespasser. However, the premises owner cannot purposely cause injury to trespassers, for instance by setting a trap to injure a trespasser.

Various Elements of Negligence in a Slip and Fall Case Against a Restaurant

A personal injury attorney can help you prove negligence caused your accident, but there are 3 elements that need to be considered during a slip and fall case. These elements are:

  • Duty of Care

As previously mentioned, premises liability regulations say that there is a certain amount of duty of care that a premises owner/manager needs to take for those people on the property. The level of this duty of care that you are entitled to will depend on which type of guest to the property that you are categorized as.

  • Failure of Duty of Care

If you have a specific level of duty of care that you were entitled to, but the restaurant didn’t meet, you are entitled to compensation.

  • Suffered Harm

If you suffered harm that is measurable due to the lack of duty of care that you were provided by The Licking Restaurant, then you are entitled to compensation.

These cases can be difficult to prove, which is why it’s important to get a personal injury lawyer on your side to help. They can look closely at the case and help compile evidence to ensure the best possible outcomes.
