Can I Sue if I’m Injured in an NYC Restaurant?

It’s no secret that New York City is jam-packed with wonderful restaurants. Just about anywhere you turn, you can find a fantastic place to sit down and enjoy a meal with friends, family, or by yourself. Unfortunately, there are times when restaurants fail to deliver on a positive customer experience, and though this typically results in nothing more than a bad meal, this isn’t always the case. Sometimes, a restaurant can become unsafe, and unsuspecting guests will sustain serious injuries as a result. If you were recently injured in a restaurant, you should strongly consider speaking with a seasoned NYC personal injury lawyer from The Law Offices of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about these accidents and how our legal team can help if you’ve been hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do I know if I have a valid claim after getting injured in a restaurant?

To have a valid personal injury claim, you will need to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. This isn’t always easy, so it is paramount you retain the services of an attorney who can effectively help you satisfy the burden of proof in your injury claim. Just some of the most common safety hazards and types of injuries we see occur in restaurants are as follows:

  • Wet floors
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Dim lighting
  • Scald injuries from hotplates
  • Food poisoning
  • Fire hazards, such as cooking oils or gas leaks
  • Electrical hazards

If you were injured in a restaurant due to any of the aforementioned, there is a strong chance you will qualify for financial compensation in a personal injury claim. Our legal team is here to help you pursue the compensation you deserve and need to heal.

What should I do if I want to file a premises liability claim against a restaurant?

To start, the moment you are injured you should call 911 and request emergency medical services. You should also notify the restaurant owner of your injury. If you can, take pictures of the safety hazard that caused your injury and ask witnesses for their contact information so they can corroborate your claim at a later date. You should also keep copies of medical documentation regarding your injuries. Finally, before filing a claim, you should hire a lawyer who can do so on your behalf. Our legal team is here to help you effectively navigate each step of the claims process ahead.
