Injuries and Illnesses in Restaurants
People in St. Louis dine in restaurants every day, from grabbing a quick lunch during the work day to enjoying a Sunday brunch or spending a romantic evening out. While most will never suffer any type of harm in a restaurant, some have the misfortune of being injured in an accident or of contracting some type of food poisoning. Some of the more common causes of personal injury in restaurants include poor layout of the tables, chairs, bar, etc., dim lighting conditions, broken handrails or stair steps, slippery or wet floors, and poor maintenance of the property.
Due to the fact that a restaurant accident takes place on another person's property, it is often possible to recover monetary damages by filing a premises liability claim. Premises liability makes it possible for an injured person to claim financial compensation for an accident which was caused or contributed to by the negligence of the property owner. If, for example, you were hurt in a slip and fall, it may be possible to demonstrate that your accident was the result of the restaurant's failure to clean a spill on the floor.
