What You Need to Know About Restaurant Accidents in Manhattan

Though we seldom expect an accident to happen, those that occur in restaurants are particularly surprising, as we never think of a nice dinner with friends or family as a dangerous activity. Unfortunately, these accidents do happen, and if you’ve been hurt in one, you may require financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and more. Our firm is prepared to assist you. Please read on and reach out to our experienced Manhattan slip and fall attorney to learn more about restaurant accidents and how our legal team can help you through the process ahead if you’ve been wrongfully hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do most restaurant accidents occur?

Restaurant accidents can have several potential causes, but in most cases, they are the result of negligence–usually on the part of restaurant ownership or staff. Some of the most common causes of restaurant accidents and injuries are as follows:

  • Burns
  • Slip and falls from spilled liquids
  • Unsafe restaurant parking lot conditions
  • Inadequate security
  • Poor lighting

What should I do after getting hurt in a restaurant?

If you are injured in a restaurant, the first thing you should do is call an ambulance to the scene of the accident and ensure that you receive immediate medical treatment. While you wait for the ambulance to arrive, you should take pictures of the unsafe restaurant conditions that caused your accident and ask anyone who saw your accident happen for their contact information. From here, once an ambulance arrives at the scene and you are treated at a hospital, you should ask your doctor for a copy of all medical documentation/bills associated with your injury. Finally, you should retain the services of an experienced Manhattan slip and fall attorney who can fight for the compensation you need.

What is the statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Manhattan?

The statute of limitations for premises liability claims in Manhattan is, typically, three years, which means that you must file your personal injury claim within three years of the date of your accident. Our legal team is ready to help you through every step of the claims process today.
