A nice evening out in Manhattan can become a nightmare if you or your date suffer a slip and fall at a restaurant. It is not just an embarrassment; you could suffer injuries that might affect your ability to work and that require extensive medical treatment. If the slip and fall accident was the result of negligence by the restaurant, you may be eligible for compensation to cover the costs of your doctor and hospital bills, lost income, and any other costs related to the injury.
To learn more about the legal process for NYC restaurant slip and falls, it is important to talk with an experienced injury attorney. Please contact Proner & Proner in New York City to discuss the details surrounding your injury. We have extensive experience with this type of accident claim. The firm’s lead attorney, Mitchell Proner, has many years of experience handling personal injury matters and knows how to build a strong case.

Your eligibility for compensation does not depend on the type of restaurant—the slip & fall accident could have happened at a coffee shop, a fast food place, a neighborhood hole-in-the-wall, or an airport bar and grill. Whatever the venue, the issue is the same: Was your injury caused by negligence on the part of the restaurant owner, staff, or third party contractor? If the answer to that question is “Yes,” you could be eligible for compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.
The nature of slip and fall injuries can vary considerably. You might sprain your ankle or you could suffer a significant head injury. Other possible restaurant slip and fall injuries include:
The causes of such injuries include spilled food and drink, wet floors, uneven and broken sidewalks, stairs and parking lots outside restaurants, tripping hazards such as electrical cords and worn carpet, and damaged or uneven floors. If the firm can show that the restaurant knew or should have known about the problem and did nothing to fix it or warn customers, then the owners or operators of the restaurant could be liable for your injuries and related expenses.
