I Slipped and Fell at El Pollo Loco. Now What?

For the majority of the time, spills in a restaurant are reported/noticed and then cleaned quickly. Unfortunately, there are occasions where the staff are slow to react, and we experience a slip and fall accident. Normally, this leads to one question - can I sue? We’re going to uncover the answer today.

Immediately after a slip and fall accident in El Pollo Loco, we recommend following the advice below:

  • Inform the El Pollo Loco management of your accident - if you don’t report it while in the restaurant, this could come back to harm you in the future because the seriousness of injuries will be questioned.
  • Either you or somebody you’re with should speak to witnesses to gather their details (this will be useful when compiling evidence later). If you have the time, you could even get a written statement on the spot.
  • If possible, take pictures of the environment that caused the slip and fall accident. If the floor was wet without a warning sign, grab a picture for evidence.
  • Although it sounds obvious, get the medical attention you need. Not only because you need to get yourself better, but because medical documentation will be important when seeking compensation.
  • If there are cameras in the building, ask for a copy of the footage or for the footage to be protected.
  • Get in touch with a personal injury lawyer - at The Injury Firm, we’re passionate about helping people after a slip and fall incident.

Can I Sue El Pollo Loco for a Slip and Fall Accident?

Maybe; it all depends on the circumstances surrounding your accident at El Pollo Loco. When you enter a restaurant, it has an obligation to keep you as safe as possible. This means clearing spillages, warning of hazards, fixing broken railing, fixing upturned concrete in the parking lot, and reducing the risk of incidents all across the premises.

If El Pollo Loco has failed in its duty of care or been negligent in some way, then you could potentially receive compensation. If a customer spills a drink and then somebody standing right next to them slips over within 10 seconds, it would be tough to suggest negligence on the part of El Pollo Loco. Therefore, negligence comes from the restaurant knowing or having the opportunity to know that a hazard was present. If they knew about a hazard and failed to act, or dropped the ball with maintenance, compensation may be obtainable.

From here, whether or not you receive compensation depends on the severity of the injury, the responsibility of the restaurant, and whether or not the injuries were a direct result of El Pollo Loco’s negligence.
