Hazardous Slip and Fall Conditions at NJ Restaurants
During meal hours, restaurants can get pretty hectic, with drinks, food and people circulating the premises. Management and staff should be trained to monitor the safety of the premises and address any of the following common hazards as they come up:
- Spilled drinks and food debris
- Poor lighting conditions
- Torn carpet
- Changes in flooring
- Rain or snow that gets trudged inside
A restaurant slip and fall accident victim should immediately receive medical attention and, if able, report the incident to the restaurant's management. S/he also should document everything s/he can about the incident – photos, written accounts, videos, etc. This will contribute towards a stronger claim down the line.
Proving Liability in a Restaurant Slip and Fall Case
In order to establish liability on the part of the business/property owner in a restaurant slip and fall accident case, you must be able to show that:
- The owner either created or knew of the hazard;
- The hazard was not addressed for an unreasonable amount of time; and
- The hazard directly contributed to your injury incident.
For example, a customer spills a drink in a restaurant. Employees and management notice the incident but don't take any action to address it because they are busy. They don't even put up a warning sign. Eventually, another customer slips on the wet floor and hurts his back. He is entitled to pursue compensation from the restaurant owner for his back injury.
