Jimmy John’s Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

jimmy johns restaurant front and signThe last thing you would ever expect from a fast-food restaurant is an injury, but the reality is that accidents can happen, and they can cause serious harm. Jimmy John’s is an American sandwich shop with more than 3,000 locations nationwide. They, like all restaurants in Florida, have a duty to keep their patrons safe from harm by ensuring that their practices all meet a certain standard. Jimmy John’s also has the motto “Freaky Fast” for their delivery service. Unfortunately, when safety is compromised for speed, accidents can occur, and this is where The Injury Firm can help.

The most common type of injuries we see at Jimmy John’s are slip and fall accidents. These can occur if machines are leaking if the floor is wet and not signposted correctly, if a rug is uneven, or for many different reasons. If you suffer an accident of any kind at a Jimmy John’s, and you aren’t to blame, come in and see our team of personal injury attorneys to see if you are eligible to claim compensation.

Tripping and falling may sound like no big deal, but serious damage can occur as a result of a fall. Injuries typical of sandwich restaurants include dislocated shoulders, hips, and ankles; broken wrists or arms; cuts and bruises; or spinal damage. Head injuries can occur if you hit your head hard on the floor or some other object, which can be serious and permanent. Claiming compensation for these types of injuries will help cover medical expenses and alleviate personal trauma from the ordeal. You can claim damages in two ways:

General dаmаgеѕ: To compensate the раin, suffering аnd mental agony оf thе injurу. All damages associated with the рhуѕiсаl aspects оf your injury comes under general damages.

Sресiаl dаmаgеѕ: To соvеr аll оf thе non-physical aspects of your injury, ѕuсh as financial lоѕѕes as a result of  travel соѕtѕ, mеdiсаl fееѕ, lоѕѕ оf job, еtс.

Getting compensated

Unfortunately, it is not always as easy as claiming what you are owed from your injury and being paid. Restaurants will often try to deny their negligent behavior, and attempt to make out that you were the one at fault. That is why it advisable to speak to a great legal team who specializes in personal injuries, and who can help you with your claim.

The restaurant's duty of care

Whether the Jimmy John’s in question is owned by the company or a franchisee, they still have a duty of care that extends to anyone on their premises. They must ensure that their restaurant is safe, which means that when injuries do occur, the owner is typically liable.

Depending on what occurred, it may be the fault of the individual store owner, or it may be the fault of Jimmy John’s corporate safety information and practices. This is yet another reason to speak to a slip and fall lawyer at The Injury Firm, who can determine who was at fault and who is ultimately liable. You will need to be clear on this detail, so you know who to file your damages claim with.

The benefits of using a specialist

Many lawyers will accept slip and fall cases, but only specialists know the intricacies of this type of case. Jimmy John’s insurance provider will try to reduce the value of your claim by questioning the validity and seriousness of your injuries or attempting to suggest you were at fault. This is not a pleasant thing to go through after suffering at the hands of corporate negligence, and you need a lawyer who will fight for you, and who knows what to do every step of the way. At The Injury Firm, we are experts at:

  • Gathering all available evidence to make your claim
  • Building the strongest possible case against Jimmy John’s
  • Negotiate with the insurance company
  • Seek the highest possible remuneration for you
  • Go to trial with you if you cannot settle out of court, although this is usually unnecessary

At The Injury Firm, we will stand with you every step of the way. Your initial consultation with us is free and the exact fees will depend on your situation, and how we can best assist you.  If we don’t win your case, you owe nothing!!

Sustaining injury from Jimmy John’s practices off-premises

Jimmy John’s is known for their slogan “Freaky Fast”, but unfortunately, this emphasis on speed comes at the cost of safety. When delivery drivers are pressured to meet unrealistic delivery timeframes, their driving will not be as safe, and accidents can and do occur. There has been one tragic incident of a death caused by a Jimmy John’s driver, where a man was hit and killed while out walking his dog.

You are likely entitled to compensation if you are injured by Jimmy John’s drivers, and car accident lawyers are specialists who will be able to make the strongest possible claim for your situation. They are adept at dealing with insurance companies, negotiating on your behalf, and taking the matter to court if that becomes necessary.

Hiring a lawyer

Whether you are dealing with an injury caused by falling or otherwise harming yourself inside a Jimmy John’s location or been injured by a Jimmy John’s driver, you will want to hire a lawyer as soon as possible. Your memory of the incident will be clearer soon afterward, and you will give your lawyer plenty of time to prepare a rock-solid case. You will also often only have a finite number of days after the incident in which you can lodge a claim.

You need to hire quickly, but you also need to make sure your lawyer is someone you trust. You will work closely with your lawyer, so the lawyer must be a good fit. That is why hiring an expert in the kind of claim you are making is valuable. You will know that they have the right skills and experience and have worked on cases just like yours.
