My husband and I started out on an evening on the town, dinner and a movie, it turned into a nightmare in the local emergency room, We were at our favorite restaurant and I slipped, it was completely unexpected.
Did you know that statistics show that approximately 4 million people are injured in slip and fall accidents in restaurants in the United States? These accidents are mostly caused by unsafe or unclean floor surfaces, or by inadequate warning signs of hazards.
- Wet floors
- Waxed floors
- Debris on the floor
- Food or beverages dropped or spilled
- Floor mats
Restaurant owners and/or managers have an obligation to properly maintain the floors and post proper warning signs if a hazard exists close by. A spill must be cleaned immediately or a sign posted warning customers.
