Negligence & Slip and Fall Injuries at Restaurants in New York

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.

Injuries from Restaurant Slip, Trip & Falls in NYC

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:

  • Broken bones, including limbs, hips, wrists, and pelvis
  • Lacerations from broken glass, cutlery, and china
  • Burns from hot liquids
  • Bone bruises
  • Scarring
  • Internal injuries
  • Separated injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries

Causes of Slip and Falls in New York Restaurants

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.
