I Fell And Got Hurt At California Pizza Kitchen, Now What?

california pizza kitchen storefrontCalifornia Pizza Kitchen is a restaurant chain that specializes in California-style pizza. In addition to the specialty pizza, the polished casual dining restaurant offers a variety of lunch and dinner options like salads, soups and more. With more than 250 locations in 32 U.S. states, the company which was started in 1985 by two attorneys have grown into a big business.

While California Pizza Kitchen has recorded a lot of improvement in the way they run their restaurants, there are still chances that someone can get hurt there. It will really be a shame that you go out with your friends and family for a pizza in such a recognized establishment only to fall and get hurt. While the chances are slim, the possibilities are there and you need to know what to do afterwards.

What Could Cause Slip and Fall Accident?

Most restaurants under California Pizza Kitchen have highly safe environments but there are still several things that can result in slip and fall accidents. Any form of faulty flooring can lead to an accident in any building. If a spill is not cleaned as soon as possible, for instance, there are chances that someone can slip and fall. Wet floor and poorly lit areas of the restaurant can lead to slip and fall accidents and injuries too. In any instance, the restaurants need to keep their premises safe or warn visitors about possible hazards. Failure to do that will always result to premises liability suits.

What Could Be the Aftermath of a Slip and Fall Accident in California Pizza Kitchen?

Most often, slip and fall accidents in restaurants and other public places result in different levels of injuries. This means there will be medical expenses and the possibilities of lost wages. While bruises and strains can be treated easily with minimal loss on the part of the victim, major issues like broken bone, spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries will need special medical intervention and extensive treatment that can cost lots of money.

Irrespective of the level of your restaurant slip and fall injury, it is important that you work with personal injury lawyers to get the sort of compensation you need. Since it is not your fault that you fell and got hurt at California Pizza Kitchen, you need to be compensated by the restaurant chain. It is not okay to accept just any form of compensation from the establishment. With an experienced personal injury lawyer, you can even file California Pizza Kitchen Lawsuit and get full compensation for the accident. You just have to take the right steps immediately after the accident.

What to Do After Falling and Getting Hurt At California Pizza Kitchen

Doing the right things immediately after a slip and fall accident is very important. Here are some of the most important things to do after such an unfortunate incident at California Pizza Kitchen or another restaurant:

Seek Medical Attention After Your Slip and Fall Accident

Your health is the most important thing to think about immediately after an accident. The level of injury you sustained from the slip and fall accident should determine your next step. If it appears that you are seriously injured, call for help and stay down until medical help arrives. In cases of spinal or head injuries, there is nothing much you can do on your own until you have received serious medical attention.

Even when it appears that your injury is not very serious, it is still important that you go to a doctor immediately after leaving the restaurant. You will need the medical report as an evidence that your accident required medical care, which means it was serious. This will count when you make claims for medical expenses, lost wages, and even lost earning potentials.

Document Evidence of the Slip and Fall Accident

If you are in a good condition, try to document evidence of the accident. If you came to the restaurant with someone else, this can be easier. Take pictures of the condition of the place where the accident happened. You can use your phone to take the important pictures immediately. If there are security cameras positioned in the direction of where the accident happened, take note of them and even capture them in your evidence. The pictures you take will also help greatly to prove that the accident was no fault of yours if your case goes to court.

Get the Contact of Witnesses Willing To Testify

California Pizza Kitchen is always busy. There are high chances that other diners witnessed your accident and some will be willing to testify. It is important that you get the contact of those who witnessed the accident. Ask politely if they will be willing to testify and take down their details and contact.

Report the Slip and Fall Accident to Someone in Charge

It is also important that you speak with the person in charge at the California Pizza Kitchen restaurant in which you fell and got hurt. Ask to speak with the manager directly. In instances where the manager is not available, speak with the next person in charge and, if possible, get a copy of the accident report from them before leaving.

Contact a Slip and Fall Personal Injury Attorney

It is not advisable to take on the case of a restaurant slip and fall accident on your own. Big establishments like California Pizza Kitchen have serious attorneys who easily rubbish your case or propose atrociously poor compensation. Hiring a personal injury attorney will make the process of getting your full compensation easier. They understand how to go about your case and deal with other attorneys and insurance companies the right way.

A restaurant slip and fall injury can be very serious. Working with the experienced personal injury lawyers at The Injury Firm is the best way to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
