Restaurants are seldom thought of as dangerous places. Unfortunately, many unsuspecting customers are injured every year in restaurants due to negligence. If you are someone that has been injured in a restaurant accident, you are most likely now looking into receiving financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, in-home care, lost wages, and more. If this has happened to you, please read on to learn more about your legal options going forward. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are some of the most common types of restaurant accidents?
Some of the restaurant accidents that have recovered financial compensation in the past are as follows:
- Burn injuries
- Hearing loss
- Eye injuries
- Cuts or slices
- Kitchen fires
- Food poisoning
- Soft tissue damage
How do I know if I am eligible for compensation?
The most important part of any personal injury claim is whether you were injured due to another party’s negligence. If you can prove that this is the case, you will most likely be able to recover the financial compensation you need. However, you must hire a seasoned attorney first.
How do I prove I was injured due to a restaurant employer or staff?
To prove your claim, your attorney will use various types of evidence that may include security camera footage of the incident, pictures of the safety hazard that caused your injuries, medical documents, police reports, witness statements, and more. A big lawsuit against a restaurant could put it out of business, so you can expect the restaurant owner will hire a team of legal experts to fight your claim. This is why you must do the same.
What is the statute of limitations in Maryland?
Rather simply, the statute of limitations refers to the amount of time you have from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim against a negligent party. The statute of limitations in Maryland is three years. If you wait too long, you will most likely be barred from filing a lawsuit. Do not wait.
