Slip and Fall Accident at Wingstop Restaurant 

After launching in Texas in the mid-1990s, it only took Wingstop three years to start launching new eateries around the United States. Now, the company is believed to have 1,250 locations not just in the US but right across the world. You’ll also find Wingstop restaurants in Australia, the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Russia, and more.

Like any other restaurant, Wingstop has a responsibility to provide a safe environment for all visitors. This means cleaning spillages, fixing broken handrails, informing all customers of wet flooring, providing adequate lighting in the parking lot, and ensuring that no rugs/carpets are damaged.

If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident, it’s time to contact a personal injury attorney and file a premises liability case. Just because Wingstop restaurant has a huge reputation around the world, this doesn’t mean that you should pay for damages when the initial accident wasn’t your fault.

What to Do After a Restaurant Slip and Fall Accident

If you have slipped or fallen in a Wingstop restaurant, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Any good personal injury attorney will give you this advice for two reasons; to get treatment for injuries and to start a paper trail showing the extent of your injuries. If you don’t seek medical help, Wingstop and its team of lawyers will claim that your injuries weren’t as bad as your case suggests.

While still on the premises, file an accident report with a manager or supervisor. Make the Wingstop team aware of the accident and the file goes into their system - again, no accident report could suggest that the accident wasn’t serious.

If possible, the next step is to take pictures and document the scene. Nowadays, you probably have a mobile phone in your pocket, and this is normally enough to get some pictures or even a video of the hazard. Wingstop will try to fix the hazard quickly and this removes evidence of your accident, so we recommend documenting the scene.

While still at the scene, grab the contact details of any eyewitnesses because this is often the difference between winning and losing premises liability cases. Even better, get an audio recording of witness statements before you leave.

Of course, we appreciate that not all of this is possible after experiencing an accident at a Wingstop. Therefore, the final step is to contact a personal injury attorney. With the right experience by your side, such as that available at The Injury Firm, you can protect your legal rights. We’ll gather evidence, speak with eyewitnesses, contact experts, and compile a strong case on your behalf.

Remember, keep all paperwork and documentation safe because you’ll need them for your case. This includes receipts, medical bills, medical reports, police reports (if applicable), eyewitness contact details, pictures, and anything else you think might help with the case.

Common Restaurant Injuries and Accident Causes

Unfortunately, slip and fall accidents are all too common in restaurants across the United States. While some people are responsible for their own accidents, some are the result of negligence or carelessness of the restaurant workers and managers. If the latter, you may be entitled to compensation.

Common causes of accidents in restaurants include the following:

  • Spilled food or drink
  • Upturned rugs and carpets
  • Damaged handrails
  • Damaged stairs
  • Rain carried in from outside
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Trash left in walkways
  • Poor lighting around the building

If you think you may carry some fault, speak to a lawyer before you admit this fault or instantly assume that you don’t have a case. In many cases, the Wingstop restaurant is more to blame than you first think. For example, you can still receive compensation as long as you share fault with the restaurant. If your fault amounts to less than 50%, you could have a case. Either way, contact The Injury Firm today for advice.

In terms of injuries, a slip and fall accident can lead to anything from a few scratches and bruises to serious spinal cord damage and head injuries. The damages you receive as compensation are directly affected by the seriousness of your injuries. Why? Because you’ll pay more in medical bills and you’re likely to miss more work.

Common injuries include:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Bone fractures
  • Hip fractures
  • Shoulder damage
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Back damage
  • Head injuries

When in a busy Wingstop restaurant, it’s possible to bang your head on the way down whether this is on a handrail, table, chair, or something else entirely. With serious injuries, victims are left needing medical help for many years (and possibly even for life!).

Can I Sue After a Slip and Fall Accident in a Wingstop Restaurant?

This is a question that has probably been going around your head for some time, and the answer depends on a few factors. In any premises liability case, you and your legal team must prove that the restaurant was negligent or careless.

By law, all commercial properties should be safe for visitors. Therefore, this means that the restaurant doesn’t need to have known about the hazard for you to win a premises liability case. Sometimes, it’s enough to suggest that the company should have known as a result of this obligation. If there was a damaged staircase for many months, you could say that the restaurant should have been aware and should have fixed it as part of its ongoing obligation to keep the environment safe for all visitors.

With a slip and fall accident, this is sometimes more difficult than with other premises liability cases. For example, the team should know about spillages that have been present for many hours. However, spillages that occurred seconds before the accident are a different story.

The best way to obtain compensation is by gathering evidence and proving that employees and management were negligent. It could be that the staff should have known about the hazard or that they knew but didn’t take steps to fix it. Alternatively, it could be that the company didn’t follow safety policies or caused your accident directly.

We recommend contacting The Injury Firm as soon as possible so that we can assess your case and start working towards compensation. As your legal representatives, we’ll need to prove that the company had a duty of care, it failed in this duty of care, you have an injury, and that there’s a link between the accident and injury.
