What Restaurants are Liable For
There are things the judge in your case will look into. Many of them make a big difference on the outcome of your suit. Length of time is crucial. If an obstacle was in the pathway for five minutes, it will be treated differently than if had been there for months or even years. If the food was too hot and you weren’t properly warned when your plate was handed to you, was that the first time the waitstaff did such a thing or is it a common occurrence?
The root cause of the accident will be very important too. That’s why you need a hard-working legal team like ours. We will stop at nothing to turn ever stone in order to establish who was at fault.
Restaurants can also be the scene of negligent security. If you suffered physical or sexual assault and battery and the restaurant didn’t do their job to prevent it, they may be liable. Has a complaint ever been issued about the dark parking lot? Was a strange person reported hanging out on the premises before? Have there been rapes there before? All these things are crucial to know but not easy to find out. You will need a legal team that is also good in investigative work – like us.
When a restaurant patron is hurt by a condition that is dangerous within the restaurant or on the property outside, they can hold the restaurant liable for injuries. Typically, the patron will have to show duty, breach of duty, and constructive or active notice of a dangerous condition, causation, and damages.
As a patron, you deserve the highest level of care. It is the restaurant’s responsibility to make sure you receive that. If you didn’t, all our law first. You should never be expected to pay medical fees for something that wasn’t your fault. You shouldn’t be losing wages or dealing with pain and suffering. Let us fight for you. Call now for a free consultation. You don’t owe for our services unless we win your case.
What is the Applicable Statute of Limitations?
Personal injury claims are typically subject to a two-year statute of limitations in California. That simply means two years is the deadline you must file your claim by. You don’t want to wait near that long, however. The sooner you act, the sooner you can receive your settlement. Give us a call today to discuss your restaurant injury lawsuit before it’s too late.
