Restaurants can be bustling, chaotic places. Amidst concerns over customers receiving prompt service and keeping the kitchen operating smoothly, restaurant management may not dedicate the attention they should to keeping the restaurant floor clean and free from hazards. By failing to devote the necessary time and attention to keeping their business safe, restaurant managers and owners are putting their customers’ safety at risk. If you or a loved one have been injured in a restaurant slip-and-fall accident in New York, find out if you should consider pursuing a claim for damages by contacting the Manhattan premises liability lawyer Leandros A. Vrionedes for a consultation.
If you’re injured in a fall in a restaurant, you may have a right to damages
Like other businesses, restaurants have an obligation to make a reasonable effort to keep their premises free from hazards that customers or employees might not notice. If management or owners of a restaurant learn about but do nothing to fix a hazardous condition, and someone becomes injured, then that restaurant may owe the fall victim money for their injuries.
New York City personal injury lawyer Leandros A. Vrionedes has successfully represented countless injury victims in their pursuit of money damages after slip-and-fall accidents. Let him help you get the money you deserve after you’re injured, so that you can focus on healing.
What should you do after a slip and fall in a restaurant?
After you’re hurt in a slip-and-fall at a New York restaurant, there are certain steps you should take to protect your claim for damages.
- Take photos and speak with witnesses. Find out if anyone may have seen the hazard that caused you to fall, or heard another customer complain to restaurant staff before you were injured.
- Seek medical attention. You may have injuries that aren’t immediately obvious, but still require medical care, such as a mild concussion or soft tissue damage.
- Speak with an attorney. A representative from the restaurant owner’s insurer may offer you a settlement immediately, before you have an opportunity to determine the true value of your claim by speaking with a lawyer who has your best interests at heart. Do not rush into a settlement before you have received an objective valuation of your claim.
