I Got Hurt at Long John Silver’s Fast Food Restaurant

Long John Silver's stand alone restaurantFast food restaurants can be dangerous places, posing a range of risks to diners. For example, one of the patrons might spill a drink onto the floor, causing a slippery patch. Alternatively, the staff might be cleaning the floor, but fail to use appropriate signage. Because of this, there is a range of potential accidents that can occur, from a slip and fall to a drive-thru car accident. Let’s look at some of the most common types of accidents and what you should do when you encounter them.  

Slip And Fall Accident

As we’ve seen there are multiple reasons why the slip and fall accident might occur. Regardless, it can cause serious injuries. You might break a bone or even have a serious spinal injury. For this reason, you should get the injury checked out as soon as possible, by a doctor or chiropractor. This will allow you to diagnose the problem earlier, making it easier to treat. Even if you do diagnose the injury early, it can still be expensive to get it treated properly. Thankfully, you will be able to bring a suit against Long John Silver’s to help pay for the costs of the slip and fall accident.

There are several things to consider when preparing your lawsuit. For example, you might need to show that the business acted negligently, increasing the chances that an accident could occur. Some potential signs of negligence can include failure to provide appropriate signage or not cleaning up a spill promptly. Your lawyer will be able to discuss this area more fully, giving you advice on whether or not they acted negligently. After the accident, you should also make sure to start gathering evidence. This can include taking pictures of the area where the injury occurred. You might also want to request any security footage that the business has. If there were witnesses who can verify your version of events, you should make sure to get their names and numbers.

Car Crash Accident

Also, the drive-thru area is surprisingly commonplace for accidents to occur. In these cases, there is the potential for significant health problems to occur. Often, people will take off their seatbelts and won’t be prepared for a sudden, jerking impact. This can cause injuries ranging from whiplash to broken bones. They can also shock the drivers, as most people won’t be expecting a crash to occur. As with a slip and fall accident, you should make sure that you get checked out by a medical professional. This will allow you to identify any injuries you sustained in the car accident. You will also need to take the car to the mechanics. A rear-impact has the potential to seriously damage the vehicle, and you might need to perform some repairs before the car is safe to drive again. To get the funds to do this, you might want to turn to a car accident lawyer.

The first thing that they’ll need to do is prove the car accident occurred as you claimed. This will allow you to establish that the other driver was negligent, and should pay for your damages. Proving this can be more challenging. Unlike inside the restaurant, there might not be many witnesses around to verify your version of events. Thankfully, there are other types of evidence that you will be able to use. For example, you might be able to use security footage. Alternatively, you might be able to use the damage to the vehicle as evidence. This can indicate the direction the impact came from and the amount of force that was used. You might also be able to use medical reports, documenting the types of injuries you received. Finally, if the police are called, you can use their police reports to back up your version of events. Your personal injury car accident lawyer will be able to help you gather these documents and build your case.
