A little background on Domino’s Pizza

Domino’s was founded back in 1960 in Michigan by 2 brothers, Tom and James Monaghan. As of 1960, the company was called “DomiNick’s”. It later changed its name to ‘Domino’s” in 1965. As of now, Domino’s has over 16,000 locations worldwide, thanks in no small way to its franchising business model. Essentially, how it works is that private individuals or businesses (franchisees) pay Domino’s an initial fee and also pay ongoing royalties to Dominos in order to be able to run a branch of Domino’s Pizza. Domino’s Pizza and its franchisees employ about 250,00 employees worldwide.

Requirements to be eligible for a personal injury claim at Domino's

Typically, when it comes to slip and fall accidents, you need to be able to prove that the property owner or the staff of Domino’s are responsible for your slip and fall injury in order to be eligible to file a claim. The owner of the property is required by law to ensure that his/her property is safe for visitors. It is the duty of the property owner to put up warning signs and to quickly take care of any hazards that may be harmful to others.

If there is clear evidence that the property owner, in this case, Domino’s, failed to prevent dangerous hazards that could lead to slip and fall accidents, then Domino’s is liable for any injuries and accidents that occur on its premises. Of course, there must be an injury and the injury must be as a result of the slip and fall accident that occurred at Domino’s premises. This is why taking pictures and preserving useful evidence (like the clothes you were wearing when you fell are important). On the other hand, if the defendant can prove that the slip and fall accident was as a result of your own carelessness and not their negligence, it becomes extremely difficult to secure any form of compensation.
