It seems obvious that restaurants should be held responsible for the dangerous or hazardous conditions inside their establishments, but what many diners don’t know is that restaurants may also be held responsible for some accidents that take place outside the building itself. Restaurants should take precautions to maintain both indoor and outdoor premises in a reasonably safe condition for its diners. Whether you slip and fall in the lobby, in the dining area, in the bathroom, in the parking lot, or on the sidewalk while you wait outside, you may have a personal injury claim.
Did You Fall at a Restaurant Due to an Indoor or Outdoor Hazard?
Inside or outside, it’s fairly common for diners to fall and get hurt at Orange County restaurants due to conditions that the restaurant should have known about and addressed, such as:
- Poorly maintained carpeting
- Uneven flooring
- Spilled food and drinks that haven’t been attended to
- Poor lighting conditions
- Wet entryways
- Broken or crumbling stairs
- Unmarked or unlit steps or ramps
