 Slip and Fall at YOLO Restaurant

Whether you enjoy going out for Indian, Italian, or American cuisine, not much is better than spending time with loved ones while eating delicious food. You taste succulent dishes while creating memories with people that make life that little bit easier.

However, the taste for some soon turns bitter when they experience a slip and fall accident. If you’ve experienced such an accident in a YOLO restaurant, contact The Injury Firm to be your personal injury attorney today. If it’s clear that the company showed negligence, we’ll seek compensation for injuries and ensure that the accident doesn’t impact your financial future.

YOLO Restaurant Slip and Fall Accidents - Common Causes

If you’ve never experienced a slip and fall accident, it’s hard to imagine how they might happen. Over the years, you’ve walked around plenty of restaurants and managed to avoid injury. However, these types of accidents can be caused by the following:

  • Damaged sidewalks
  • Wet bathroom floors
  • Spilled drink/food
  • Poorly-placed floor displays
  • Poor lighting outside the property
  • Damaged flooring (upturned or uneven carpet)
  • Poorly-placed electrical cords

When enjoying your trip to a YOLO restaurant, you shouldn’t have to walk around cautious that you could trip at any second. Instead, the YOLO restaurant should do everything it can to eliminate hazards and provide a safe experience for all.

Over the years, The Injury Firm has seen all sorts of negligence from bar staff, managers, and even owners. Even if you don’t see the cause of your accident on this list, we urge you to get in touch regarding your injury accident.

Example Case Against YOLO Restaurant

Back in 2016, a customer of a YOLO outlet filed a case against the company after slipping on a wet floor in the restaurant/lounge two years prior. As well as rain, the plaintiff said that other liquids were on the floor and caused the slip. After suffering injuries, the plaintiff sought damages of over $15,000 to cover medical bills and other damages.

Sadly, this isn’t a rare sight in the world of slip and fall accidents. According to one statistic, around one-third of all lost time for workers is a result of slip and fall accidents. In addition to customers, staff members can also experience these sorts of incidents. During the hustle and bustle of a busy evening, waiters and chefs are under pressure to deliver a fast service. While the rules that govern employees are slightly different, you could still be entitled to compensation for injuries. Just reach out to The Injury Firm and we’ll talk through your options.

Dealing with a Slip and Fall Accident

Normally, slip and fall accidents are unexpected, and this is what makes them so problematic. When an incident isn’t expected, the body isn’t braced for the heavy landing and this can cause a concussion, broken bones, spinal cord damage, and other injuries. But how do you deal with a slip and fall accident?

Step 1 - Report the Accident and Get Medical Attention

Naturally, the way that you respond to an accident will depend on your condition. The more serious the injuries, the more you will rely on other diners such as members of your own party. Either way, you’ll need to report the accident so that either your party or employees in Yolo can arrange medical attention.

Why is medical attention important? The obvious reason is that you get treatment for any injuries. After a heavy fall, it’s important to get checked for signs of internal bleeding as well as external injuries. The less obvious reason is that it documents your injuries. Later, the insurance company cannot claim that your injury wasn’t serious because a medical professional treated you at the site.

If you didn’t get medical attention at the site of the accident, seek it as soon as possible afterward.

Step 2 - Document the Scene

If you’re not able to document the scene, ask another member of your party to do it instead. Here, we recommend photographing the scene and the hazard that caused the accident. Once again, this captures the hazard directly after the accident (before the company has a chance to fix it and cover the evidence).

Step 3 - Speak to Witnesses

If witnesses saw the accident and the hazard, gather their details because they can prove invaluable later. Since these parties have nothing to gain, they’re credible witnesses in your case and could be the difference between compensation and no compensation for injuries. In addition to gathering details, ask if people are willing to create a written or audio statement on the spot.

Step 4 - Contact The Injury Firm

Finally, contact The Injury Firm so that you can focus on recovery rather than worry about the legal process. At this stage, you’ve done everything that you can do. Why not allow a professional and credible personal injury attorney to help your case and hold the negligent parties responsible?

Proving Fault After a Slip and Fall Accident

After reaching out to The Injury Firm, we will need to prove negligence and fault. The reason a professional with experience in this field is important is that restaurants typically have insurance policies to protect them against claims. If you were alone, the insurance company would send adjusters to contact you; these people are trained to prey on victims and reduce the prospective compensation package as much as possible. Thankfully, we have lots of experience with adjusters and know how to deal with them without it negatively affecting your case.

In terms of proving fault, we’ll first need to prove that the restaurant had a duty of care toward you. Fortunately, this is normally the simplest part of the process because all restaurants have a duty of care toward customers on the premises. If you were visiting the restaurant, they inherently had a duty to eliminate all hazards and provide a safe environment for guests.

After this, we’ll then need to prove that the employees neglected this duty and that your accident was caused because of this negligence. Of course, we’ll also need to tie the injuries to the accident (you can’t claim for other injuries!).

A personal injury attorney knows how to protect your rights and avoid the pressure put on victims by insurance adjusters. Also, they understand the process. For example, this includes the fact that you will need a physician to evaluate maximum medical improvement (MMI) before claiming permanent disability.

The Injury Firm

After an accident in YOLO restaurant or any other restaurant, pick up the phone for a friendly, helpful voice at The Injury Firm. We will protect your legal rights, gather evidence, build a strong case, and do our best to recover compensation for your injuries. This includes medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other economic and non-economic costs.

Everything starts with a free case evaluation - if we decide that you have a case, you won’t pay anything until the resolution of said case. While you recover from the injuries, we’ll work tirelessly to get compensation so that this one accident doesn’t define the financial future of your whole family!
