Chipotle Mexican Grill Illinois

I Was Injured When I Slipped and Fell at a Chipotle Mexican Grill

As we all know, Chipotle Mexican Grill offers some tremendous food. With tacos and burritos at an affordable price, millions of Americans spend their lunch breaks and evenings in the many establishments across the country.

While most have a positive experience, there’s an unfortunate percentage who end up getting more than they expected during their visit. After experiencing a slip or fall, they’re injured, forced to pay medical bills, advised to take time off work, and their whole life changes in a matter of seconds.

If you’ve been hurt in a Chipotle Mexican Grill, we have experienced and reliable slip and fall lawyers who will help you to chase the compensation you deserve.

Personal Injury Law

When we speak to clients after a slip or fall in any establishment, their first question (quite rightly!) is ‘can I obtain compensation?’. Ultimately, we can only answer this question after looking at your case and assessing the details. While we can’t provide tailored advice in this general guide, what we can do is explain how personal injury claims work. In order to be successful, there are four requirements.

Requirement #1 - First, and the simplest requirement, did Chipotle Mexican Grill have a duty of care for customers? As an example, Chipotle needs to inform customers when the floor is wet otherwise people will slip and injure themselves. As well as in the restaurant itself, this duty of care may extend to outside eating areas, parking lots, and any other property owned by the company.

Requirement #2 - As your personal injury lawyer, we’ll then assess whether the company failed in this duty. For example, an employee may have known about a loose concrete slab or a damaged piece of railing in the parking lot. If they didn’t notify customers and take measures to protect customers, they will have failed in their duty.

Requirement #3 - As a result of the second requirement, you must have suffered some form of injury. Without injury, we can’t do anything (unfortunately!). With a slip and fall lawyer, you’ll be asked about physical, financial, and emotional damage. With wet floor, the injury is normally physical but with both financial and emotional repercussions.

Requirement #4 - Finally, your injury must have been caused by the breach in duty. If you were wearing rollerblades indoors, this isn’t something Chipotle could have foreseen, and compensation will be almost impossible to obtain. If you slipped on a water spillage, this falls within the boundaries of the first three requirements and we can help.

Making a Personal Injury Claim Against Chipotle Mexican Grill

When working with a personal injury lawyer, like our brilliant service at The Injury Firm, they will assess the details of your case thoroughly. As you provide evidence and explain what happened, we can see if the four requirements above apply. If they do, we’ll start to build a case.

After an injury, you would assume that the insurance company wants to help you recuperate as much money as possible. This isn’t the case, and what they actually want to do is pay as little as possible. With this in mind, you need to be clever with your approach. Rather than choosing to take on a company like Chipotle alone, partner with a slip and fall lawyer who has experience in this field.

At The Injury Firm, we understand the tactics insurance companies employ in claims like yours. We can advise you on the correct procures while gathering evidence that supports your claim. If they still don’t want to settle, we have the resources to proceed to court and take the evidence before a judge.
