Premises Liability in Restaurants
Property owners and occupiers have a duty to keep their premises safe for visitors, and if an accident occurs because of their negligence an injury victim may bring a claim for compensation under the theory of premises liability. Depending on the type of guest, property owners are required to provide varying levels of care, and restaurants owe the highest duty of care to their customers.
Because guests are on a restaurant’s property for the economic benefit of the business, property owners must take the utmost care to ensure their safety while on the premises. Owners and occupiers must routinely inspect their premises, fix any hazardous conditions, and warn customers of any dangers that they know or should have known about on the property. Common hazards in restaurants include the following:
- Sticky or slippery floors,
- Uneven or cracked flooring,
- Overservice of alcohol,
- Inadequate security,
- Poor lighting,
- Electrical and fire hazards, and more.
Compensation for Slip and Fall Accidents
Damages for slip and fall accidents include economic out of pocket expenses as well as compensation for noneconomic harms. Economic damages cover all medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and the loss of any future income or benefits. Noneconomic damages compensate premises liability victims for their pain and suffering, disability, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. An experienced attorney can ensure that you receive full and fair compensation for your slip and fall case.
Let an Attorney Handle Your Case
Slip and fall accidents in restaurants have the potential to cause serious injury, and the last thing that an injury victim wants to do is also juggle a legal case. When you hire a knowledgeable attorney, all harassment from insurance companies stops and communication is directed to your lawyer. An attorney protects your interests in the case and can properly appraise the value of your injury claims. Your lawyer can negotiate with the insurers to ensure that you receive the compensation that you deserve after an accident on a restaurant’s premises.
