Texas Roadhouse Slip and Fall Injury

When you go to a restaurant, you go to enjoy a night out with friends, family, or loved ones. You don’t expect to have a slip and fall accident when you go out. If you had a slip and fall accident at a Texas Roadhouse restaurant, you need to get a personal injury attorney to fight for you. These injuries can be potentially very devastating, so it’s important that you get the compensation that you deserve for your damages. Slip and fall accidents are very complex cases, which is why you need to be sure that you have an experienced slip and fall accident attorney to fight for you.

Do You Have a Valid Claim against Texas Roadhouse?

Texas Roadhouse is a major chain of restaurants that are always prepared to fight against these types of cases with high-powered lawyers. That’s why it’s important for you to be sure that you have a valid claim against Texas Roadhouse for your injuries as well as a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer to help you through this process. To prove that you have a valid claim against Texas Roadhouse, there are several things to consider.

If There Was a Hazardous Condition on the Texas Roadhouse Property

One of the biggest aspects of finding out whether or not you have a claim against them for your slip and fall accident is if there was a hazardous condition on the property. What constitutes a hazardous condition? Here are some examples:

  • Slippery and/or wet floors
  • Spilled food or beverages
  • Poor lighting/inadequate lighting
  • Potholes in the parking lot
  • Sidewalks that are uneven, has cracks, or holes.
  • Greasy flooring
  • Rain being tracked inside.
  • Uneven or damaged flooring
  • Carpeting that is coming up or not properly secured.

Was an Employee Responsible for the Hazardous Condition?

Another thing to consider is whether or not an employee was responsible for the hazardous condition. Most accidents could have been prevented by an employee as the restaurant has a duty to keep the property safe for guests. This means, for instance, that when they mop up the floor they need to have a “wet floor” sign to warn others of a potential hazard. If an employee was negligent in their duty and didn’t remedy the hazardous condition, then Texas Roadhouse is liable for your injuries.

Was there Reasonable Warning of the Hazard?

Any hazards need to be remedied within a reasonable amount of time. That means that when food or beverages are spilled on the floor, they need to be picked up as soon as possible after being made aware of the hazard. If you slip within seconds of the spill, there wasn’t a reasonable amount of time to pick up the mess. But if the mess is there for several minutes before anyone bothers with it, then you may have a case against the restaurant.

This can be one of the most difficult parts to prove, which is why it’s important to get pictures or have surveillance of the scene of the accident to prove that they neglected to remedy the situation in a reasonable amount of time.

What Damages You Can Be Compensated for after a Slip and Fall Accident at Texas Roadhouse

Once you figure out whether or not you can prove that Texas Roadhouse was negligent in keeping guests safe on their premises, it’s important that you know about what you may be entitled to as far as compensation goes. Some damages that you can expect include:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medications
  • The need for rehabilitation or physical therapy.
  • Transportation to and from all of your medical appointments.
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering

There are specific calculations as to what fair compensation would be, something that your personal injury attorney can help you out with. Depending on the severity of your injuries and the level of negligence by the restaurant, you could get more or less compensation than you may think for your injuries. Having evidence of these expenses can be very helpful throughout this process.

What to Do After Your Slip and Fall Accident

What you do next after you have your slip and fall accident can significantly impact the outcome of your case. You need to do whatever you can to ensure the best possible outcome. As soon as you have your slip and fall accident, get the attention of an employee and other people. The other people can serve as witnesses to prove your case and the employee will get the manager so that they can fill out an accident report. Be sure that you get a copy of this accident report.

If you are offered medical attention, take it even if you don’t think that you’re very injured. First of all, this is important because your injuries may be more serious than you think that they are. To recover faster from your injuries, you need to get looked at right away. This is also important because if you refuse medical treatment, the manager will take note of this and this can be used to say that you weren’t as injured as you said that you were. Lastly, this is important to get documentation of your injuries right away. Your lawyer can use this documentation to help you get fair compensation for your injuries.

It’s also very important that you take as many pictures as possible and video of the accident scene and your injuries. Be sure that you get a picture of the hazard to prove that it existed and was the cause of your slip and fall accident. If there are any witnesses around, get their contact information and get their statements. If they saw what happened, they can back up your claim and make your case even stronger.

Throughout this process, it’s extremely important that you collect and save any evidence. In addition to pictures, this means keeping copies of your medical bills, medical records, receipts for your prescriptions or other medical expenses, accident report, proof of lost wages, and as much other evidence as you can possibly find.

It’s also crucial that you get a lawyer involved in the process as soon as possible. The sooner that you can get a lawyer involved in the process, the sooner you can get the compensation that you are entitled to. The lawyer will take your evidence and perform their own investigation to compile more evidence that will make your case even stronger. They can also walk you through the process so that you know exactly what to expect.
