Slip and Fall in Wendy's

Slip and fall accidents can take place anywhere. These can result into injuries ranging from minor bumps and bruises or to more serious bone fractures ‒ and could even be worse.

Wendy’s is a popular fast food chain with several stores across the world. In the USA alone, Wendy’s has about 5,877 restaurants. Founded by Dave Thomas, its first restaurant was opened in 1969 and since then its square hamburgers, signature Frosty, and sea salt fries  have rapidly become a phenomenon worldwide.

The sad truth is that, fast food restaurants such as Wendy’s can be potential hazard places where slip, trip, and falls can happen. There are several areas within the food establishment where accidents are prone to happen which include the condiment station. They are also likely to have slippery or greasy floors because of certain food items, grease from cooking and even due to wet mopped floors. On top of all these, restaurants like Wendy’s get more foot traffic and the narrow walkways surrounded by tables and chairs can contribute to accidents.

Wendy’s website asserts their goal of providing clean tables, chairs, and restrooms for their customers. Hence, maintaining a clean environment in a timely fashion is the establishment’s responsibility.

In one lawsuit filed by a customer for a slip and fall claim due to some grease in the restaurant’s area, the complainant was able to win the case which awarded her with $202,000.

Drafting a Slip and Fall Claim

Instead of paying for the medical bills when it is not your fault, filing a slip and fall accident claim is crucial to help you get the compensation that you deserve. The amount you get can help cover your medical expenses and the income you have lost as you recuperate from the injuries. You are also entitled to collect for the damages resulting from the pain and suffering you encountered due to the accident.

If you suffer from a slip and fall accident at Wendy’s or any other location, be sure to document important details related to the accident. Secure a copy of your medical bills and a record of the wages you lost because of the injuries you have sustained from the accident.
