Restaurant Accidents in Manhattan | What You Should Know

Most of us don’t expect to sustain a serious injury while simply grabbing a bite to eat. Unfortunately, restaurant accidents are more common than you may think, and if you’ve been hurt in one, you should speak with an experienced Manhattan slip and fall attorney as soon as you can. Here are some of the questions you may have about restaurant accidents and the legal process ahead:

What are the most common causes of restaurant accidents in Manhattan?

Restaurant accidents can happen for many reasons, though not unlike most other accidents, they are typically a result of negligence. In most cases, they happen when restaurant management or staff members, such as cooks or waitresses, fail to ensure the safety of diners. Some of the most common causes of restaurant accidents that our firm sees are as follows:

  • Insufficient lighting
  • Inadequate security
  • Dangerous restaurant parking lot conditions
  • Using spoiled food
  • Unsafely handling hot plates
  • Spilled liquids left uncleaned

How do I know if I have a valid personal injury claim?

To win a personal injury claim in New York, you will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another person’s negligence. Often, this is easier said than done, which is why you should retain the services of an experienced Manhattan slip and fall attorney as soon as you can. Our firm can help you gather and present all the evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, including pictures of the unsafe restaurant conditions, surveillance footage of your accident happening, medical documents regarding your injuries, witness testimony, and more.

What does financial compensation cover in New York?

If you win your personal injury claim, you should receive compensation to help you deal with the economic and non-economic damages you’ve sustained. These damages can include pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement, the cost of medical bills, the cost of lost wages, and more. Ensure that you do not delay in bringing your claim to our firm’s attention. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years, meaning you can’t wait longer than three years from the date of your accident to sue. We can help you today–all you have to do is give us a call.
