I Slipped and Fell at an Arthur Treacher’s Fish & Chips Restaurant

A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere, even in an Arthur Treacher’s Fish & Chips restaurant. Although long past their heyday, this fast-food restaurant still has seven locations in the US. For those who may have slipped and fallen, filing an accident claim is an option if you become injured.

An accident can happen anywhere. Although vehicular accidents are the most common, slip and fall accidents number in the hundreds of thousands. While most accidents of this type result in no injury, there are some that may cause bumps, bruises, and scrapes. A few may even cause more serious injuries such as broken bones.

How Fast Food Restaurant Slip and Fall Accidents Occur

At a fast-food restaurant like Arthur Treacher’s, a slip and fall accident can have a number of causes. The most common include the following.

  • Slick floors due to spillage or cleaning
  • Tripping due to object or trash on the floor
  • Carpet that is not properly tacked down

While these are some of the most common causes, the reasons why there were slick floors, objects, or trash that did not belong on the floor, or carpet that was pulled up may be the fault of the restaurant itself.

Negligence

All establishments that cater to the public and have employees present on the property have a legal obligation to do what they can to keep their customers and employees safe. This includes the proper cleaning and maintenance which is prompt and timely. By not addressing potential issues when notified or in a timely manner, the management may be held responsible for allowing the conditions of a slip and fall accident to occur.

  • Not promptly cleaning the floors after a food or beverage spill
  • Not picking up loose trash or debris from the floors
  • Not addressing tripping hazards such as loose carpet and more

It is the responsibility of the management to ensure the safety of their customers. When these issues are not addressed properly, then you may be entitled to compensation for any injuries you suffered as a result of the accident.

When to File an Accident Claim

The first thing you should do when suffering injuries from a slip and fall accident is to get the proper medical treatment. Take care of the injuries first and then seek the assistance of an attorney or law firm that specializes in accident cases such as The Injury Firm in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

When you call, you will receive a free consultation. This means that the attorney will listen to what happened and provide guidance on the type of assistance they may provide. Remember that you can decide whether you need the services of an attorney or not when dealing with the restaurant or their insurance company. However, there are good reasons why you should have a knowledgeable, experienced accident attorney by your side.

Guidance: Getting just compensation for the injuries suffered in an accident for most people means not knowing what steps to take. Dealing with insurance companies combined with the management of the fast food restaurant can be overwhelming. That is where having an experienced personal injury attorney helps.

Negotiations: Insurance companies will mostly offer the lowest amount for a settlement because that is their business. However, the impact of your injuries goes beyond the initial treatment. From follow-up appointments to additional treatments to dealing with the physical and emotional pain and anguish, your injury attorney will be there to help you in your time of need.

Representation: If you need to go to court, you will also need the services of a good attorney. They will inform you of your rights, provide advice on the best course of action, and keep you informed of what is happening so you can feel comfortable in what to do.

If you have suffered from a slip and fall accident at a fast-food restaurant such as Arthur Treacher’s Fish & Chips, then you should seek the services of a reputable slip and fall accident attorney. They can provide you with the guidance and representation needed in case you have been injured. Call The Injury Firm at 954-951-0000 today.
