What Should I do if I Was Injured in a Restaurant Accident?

Restaurant employees are some of the country’s hardest-working. Restaurants are fast-paced environments where employees are expected to keep up. However, this chaotic atmosphere can sometimes spawn some gruesome injuries, and if you have been injured, you are most likely looking into recovering financial compensation to help with your recovery. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How are restaurant employees injured?

Some of the most common injuries sustained in restaurant accidents are as follows:

  • Hearing loss, due to loud noises. This is especially true if you work in a drive-thru or another loud environment. Do not tell yourself it’s manageable and neglect to receive treatment. We can help you pay for the treatment you need via a personal injury lawsuit
  • People are also injured due to exposure to toxic chemicals. You may not think they are anywhere to be found in restaurants, but they can be.
  • Slip and fall injuries, due to spilled drinks or freshly-mopped floors without warning signs
  • Sometimes, employees are burned or electrocuted by malfunctioning electrical appliances
  • If your boss is aware of the fact that you have a certain medical condition that prevents you from doing physically tasking labor and are asked to do so anyway, your employer may be held liable for any of the injuries you sustain as a result

How do I know if I qualify for financial compensation?

To qualify for financial compensation, you must be able to recover and present evidence that sufficiently proves you were injured due to another party’s negligence. This is where our firm steps in. We are ready to fight for your right to a speedy recovery.

How can an attorney help me win my claim?

Winning personal injury claims is rarely easy. To win your claim, our team will work to uncover photographic or video evidence of your accident, medical documents detailing the extent of your injuries, witness statements verifying your claim, police reports, and more.

What is the statute of limitations in New Jersey?

The statute of limitations refers to the legally-acceptable amount of time you have to file a lawsuit against a negligent party. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations is two years, which means you simply cannot afford to wait. If you fail to contact an attorney and file a claim within two years, you will be denied your right to sue.
