Slip and Fall in Taco Bell

taco bell storefrontSlip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, including fast food restaurants. The injuries sustained in these types of accidents can vary between very minor or more severe. The problem is that sometimes these injuries can be completely devastating, emotionally, physically, and even financially. If you have had a slip and fall accident in Taco Bell, you should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to ensure that you get the help you need.

What You Need to Know about Slip and Fall Accidents in Taco Bell

Accidents unfortunately happen sometimes, but in some cases these accidents may be caused by the restaurant’s negligence. If it is, then they are liable for any damages incurred by your accident as long as you can prove their negligence caused your accident. The next steps that you take after your accident can have a significant impact on the outcomes of your case, which is why it is essential that you know what to do in case it happens to you.

If you slip and fall at Taco Bell, the first thing that you need to do is get the attention of an employee and seek medical attention. One of the biggest mistakes that people make is by refusing medical attention as soon as the accident occurs. By refusing treatment, you are saying to the staff that you aren’t really that injured and they will make note of this to use against you should a claim be filed. Even if you don’t think you need medical attention, take it so that they can document your injuries. Be sure that they also file an accident report about the incident so that everything is done as soon as possible after the accident.

After this, you should immediately contact a personal injury lawyer. They can get a head start on your case so that you can get the compensation that you deserve sooner. This can even be helpful to your case because all of the information will be fresh in everyone’s mind, including any witnesses that may have seen the incident occur. They will take that important accident report and medical report to determine if your claim fits the requirements for a liability case. Never post about the incident on social media and limit any contact you have with the Taco Bell staff. Once you have a lawyer, they will take care of communications for you to ensure the best possible outcomes for your case.

Common Hazards at Taco Bell

There are a lot of hazards that you may come across in your Taco Bell. Due to the nature of the fast-food business, there are frequent spills of soft drinks or other beverages on the floor. Sometimes there is food that gets dropped on the floor or other condiments are spilled. Even trash on the ground can pose hazards for customers at fast-food restaurants. These are all hazards that can be easily avoided if the staff is attentive and cleans up any mess as soon as possible.

Fast food establishments also must abide by specific public safety and building codes. Taco Bell needs to have non-slip flooring and handrails that are properly installed for the safety of anyone who visits their premises. If an employee mops up the restaurant, they need to put a sign up to warn people that the floor is wet. These are just some of the things that employees are required to do to keep everyone safe as they visit the restaurant.

Other potential hazards include:

  • Wet areas inside and outside caused by weather, that hasn’t been cleaned up or is marked off to warn people about the hazard.
  • Damaged or cracked flooring, which can pose a tripping hazard.
  • Damaged or cracked sidewalks

Common Injuries from Slip and Fall Accidents

Unfortunately, sometimes slip and fall accidents can be very dangerous. The injuries vary between very minor and incredibly serious. Common injuries that can occur include:

  • Head and brain injuries, including traumatic brain injuries and concussions
  • Back, spinal cord, and neck injuries
  • Fractures and broken bones

Getting the Compensation You Deserve

In many cases, you may be eligible for compensation for your slip and fall accident in Taco Bell. If they are found to be at fault for your injuries, you can sue them for more than just your current medical bills. You may also be able to collect damages for future medical bills, pain/suffering/mental anguish, and any current and future lost wages.

The most important thing is determining whether or not Taco Bell is actually liable for your injuries. It is important for you to contact a lawyer as soon as possible so that they can look over your case and determine whether or not you have a case against Taco Bell. This is why it is important to collect all of the information you can right away and seek medical attention as soon as possible so that you can start collecting your evidence. The earlier you start the process, the sooner you can find out if you have a case and get the compensation you deserve a lot quicker.

When an accident happens, this can cause severe emotional and financial stress on the family especially if the primary income earner is injured. You can potentially end up with massive medical bills and you may be out of work for some time, meaning that you lose out on your wages. You shouldn’t have to suffer such severe consequences because Taco Bell was negligent and caused your injury.

It is important that you have a reputable lawyer on your side, fighting for you. Taco Bell is concerned about their bottom line, not your best interests. Your lawyer will handle all of the processes, letting you know what to expect and how to proceed in your case. They will give you the best chances at success in your claim. Accidents happen, but you shouldn’t have to carry the consequences of the accident yourself if it was caused by the negligence of someone else.  For a free case evaluation, call 954-951-0000.
