Waffle House Slip and Fall Accident

When you go out to the Waffle House, you are intending to have a great time with your loved ones. What you aren’t expecting is to have a potentially life-altering accident. If you have a slip and fall at Waffle House, you should be aware of what your rights are. This is where a premises liability lawyer can help. A restaurant accident lawyer can help you through your case, letting you know whether or not you have a viable case so that you can get the compensation that you deserve after your accident.

How Slip and Fall Accidents Happen at Waffle House

Restaurants are very busy establishments, which have a lot of potential hazards that you need to be aware of. You have a lot of foot traffic, between the staff and patrons of the restaurant. This can lead to a variety of different issues that can lead to potentially devasting accidents. Some common causes of these accidents include:

  • Drinks and beverages that are spilled on the floor
  • Wet floors, especially in the bathroom
  • Uneven sidewalks around the restaurant
  • Parking lots and entryways that aren’t properly maintained
  • Rain creating slippery entryways and sidewalks
  • Displays on the floor that create obstructions
  • Electrical cords in the way
  • Damaged or uneven floor

These are the most common causes of a slip and fall accident in a Waffle House.

Compensation You May be Entitled to

There are laws about premises liability, where you can receive compensation for your injuries if they were the result of someone else’s negligence. The staff at a restaurant have a responsibility to the patrons to remedy any potential hazards within a reasonable amount of time. If they don’t, they will be liable for any injuries that these hazards potentially cause. Compensation that you may be entitled to includes:

  • Medical bills, future and present
  • Lost wages, future and present
  • Pain and suffering
  • Diminished quality of life

Your lawyer will help you understand what compensation you could be entitled to for your damages.

What You Should Do Immediately After Your Slip and Fall Accident

The steps that you take immediately after your slip and fall accident can have a significant impact on how successful your case is. These are the things that you should do immediately after your accident to improve your chances of getting the compensation that you deserve.



Get the Attention of the Staff and/or Manager

It’s important to have as much documentation as possible after your accident. Immediate after your slip and fall accident, you should get the attention of the staff and/or the manager. This will cause them to file an accident report, which you can use in your case against the restaurant. The slip and fall accident should include every detail about the accident, creating a thorough report that can help your case. If you don’t have an accident report, it can be more difficult to prove your case.

Take Pictures of the Scene and Injuries

Pictures make for great evidence of your accident. You should take pictures and videos of the scene of your accident as well as your injuries. This documentation can be extremely helpful in proving your case against Waffle House. Be sure to include the hazards that caused the accident as well as any other pictures that are potentially relevant to your case. Also look out for any surveillance cameras that may have caught your accident.

Get Information from Witnesses

The testimony from third-party witnesses can be an essential tool in your case. These are unbiased witnesses that can give objective testimony about what they saw. Try to take note of what they saw and their contact information so that your slip and fall lawyer can get in touch with them about your case.

Get Medical Treatment

No matter how you feel after your slip and fall accident, you should always seek out medical attention. You may have a serious injury that you aren’t noticing due to shock or adrenaline after your accident. Your injuries may be more severe than you think. There’s also the risk that if you don’t get medical attention as soon as possible after your accident, that they will make note of this. This can then be used as evidence that you aren’t as injured as you say you are.

Contact a Lawyer

You should contact a lawyer as soon as possible after your accident. They can let you know whether you have a case, then quickly get started on the case. This means a faster resolution so that you can get your money quicker. A lawyer is an essential tool that can help you get the best possible outcomes for your case.
