Eating out feels like a real treat for many of us. That’s why if something should go wrong, you will end up feeling very frustrated by it. This is particularly true if you happen to have tripped on a restaurant hazard, since it should not have occurred if you were taking care in where you were walking.
Any injury has a chance to alter the way you live, at least for a short time. For instance, if you were to break your toe while tripping over, perhaps on a worn carpet in a restaurant for example, you wouldn’t be able to walk without pain for a while. You may not be able to drive or stand for too long either, depending on how bad the injury was.
Can anything be done for a broken toe?
If you’ve tripped on a restaurant hazard, you may possibly sustain a broken toe. If so, you should always get it seen to, because you never know how bad that injury might be. If the toe does not heal properly with the bones in the right place, you could end up getting problems later on.
Furthermore, if you have had an accident that has broken your toe like this, visiting your GP or an A&E department for treatment can also provide a record that will come in useful later on. This can be used as evidence for any claim for compensation you may be able to put forward.
Is there still time to claim?
If you tripped on a restaurant hazard some time ago, you might be wondering whether it is now too late to make a claim. If your accident happened in the last three years, there is still time. We would however recommend you call us as soon as possible, if only because everything will be fresh in your memory if the accident occurred more recently.
