Injured in accidents in a restaurant?
If you have an accident in a restaurant and were injured, you may be entitled to make a claim against the owner if you can prove it was caused by the negligence of the staff or the owner. For example, if you slip and fall because food or liquid was spilled on the floor, you could claim that the negligence of the staff caused the accident. Had the manager ensured that the mess was cleaned up immediately and warning signs were in place to show the floor was wet you would not have been injured.
If a chair collapsed while you were sitting on it, you may be able to make a claim. Afterall, it’s reasonable to expect chairs should be safe for customers to sit on. Should you catch your heel in a patch of threadbare carpet, fall and fracture your wrist, this could also be construed as negligence on the part of the owner.
