At Russell and Lazarus, one of the very first questions we get when we meet with injured restaurant fall victims is, “Do I even have a claim?” Some victims are even hesitant to think about pursuing a claim, wanting to put the sometimes embarrassing and painful event firmly in the past. However, diners should know that they can pursue compensation for their medical bills and other expenses after a serious fall caused by a negligent restaurant, and there’s no need to feel embarrassed about doing so. Here’s some information to help you get started.
When You May Have a Personal Injury Claim after a Restaurant Fall
You may be able to pursue a claim if you were injured in a fall that was caused by the restaurant’s negligence. However, it can often be difficult to determine if the restaurant can be held responsible and if you have a real chance of proving negligence. If you have questions, or if you’re not sure if you can pursue a claim, an Orange County personal injury lawyer can review your case and talk more about your specific options.
When You Probably Don’t Have a Claim
Generally speaking, if the restaurant’s negligence had nothing to do with your fall, you won’t be able to successfully pursue a personal injury claim against the restaurant. Moreover, if you can’t prove that the restaurant was responsible for your fall, then you won’t be successful. Additionally, if you wait too long, you may miss your chance to file a claim against the restaurant.
