Recovering Compensation After a Restaurant Accident in New York State

Restaurant employees are often required to fulfill a wide array of tasks throughout the day. That being said, just as employees are responsible for doing their job and conducting themselves professionally every day, their employers also have responsibilities. For example, employers are responsible for ensuring their establishment is safe for all who work and dine there. If you are someone who was injured due to a negligent store owner or manager, there is a very good chance you will be able to recover financial compensation. If you find yourself in this situation, here are some of the questions you may have regarding your legal options going forward:

How do restaurant accidents happen?

Restaurant accidents can happen for any number of reasons, though they generally stem from negligence. Some of the most common types of restaurant accidents and injuries are as follows:

  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Burn or scald injuries
  • Toxic chemical exposure
  • Food poisoning
  • Electrocutions from dysfunctional electrical appliances
  • Muscle strains and injuries from heavy lifting

Do I qualify for compensation?

To win a personal injury claim, you have to satisfy the burden of proof. This means that you will have to prove you were injured due to another party’s negligence. Generally, it is best to hire an experienced attorney who has a track record of successfully proving negligence in the past.

How can an attorney help me win my claim?

A skilled attorney knows how to effectively collect and present evidence to win clients the compensation they need. For example, attorneys may use photographs or videos of the accident, pictures of the safety hazard, medical documents, police reports, or even eyewitness testimony to prove your claim. Do not wait to hire an attorney you can trust.

What is the statute of limitations in New York State?

The statute of limitations is the legally acceptable timeframe you have to file a lawsuit against a negligent party. In New York, you have three years from the date of your accident to do so. If you fail to file a claim in this period of time, you will most likely be barred from suing. Do not let this happen. Reach out to our firm as soon as you can.
