Restaurant employees have several daily responsibilities. Unfortunately, despite all the hard work they do, restaurant workers are not immune to accidents. If you are someone who was injured in a restaurant accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of any damages you have incurred. Those seeking financial compensation must read on to learn more about their legal options going forward. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are some of the most frequently sustained injuries in restaurant accidents?
Some of the most common injuries and accidents that occur in restaurants are as follows:
- Slip and fall injuries
- Burns or electrocutions from malfunctioning appliances
- Hearing loss from a loud working environment
- Injuries relating to toxic chemical exposure
- Soft tissue injuries
- Food poisoning
How do I recover compensation after an accident?
Injured parties can only recover financial compensation if they are able to satisfy the burden of proof. Rather simply, this means that those injured must first prove they were injured due to another party’s negligence. However, these claims are not easily won, which is why most injured parties will hire experienced attorneys to fight for their right to compensation.
How can an attorney help me win a lawsuit?
An attorney will help gather all the evidence you need to prove your personal injury claim. For example, an attorney may use photographic or video evidence of your accident as it happened, pictures of the safety hazard that caused your injuries, police reports, witness testimony, or medical documents detailing the extent of your injuries to prove your claim. You cannot go it alone. Our firm will fight to have your compensation quickly and efficiently recovered to help you get back on your feet as soon as possible.
What is the statute of limitations in New Jersey?
The phrase, “statute of limitations” is used to describe the amount of time you have from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim against a negligent party. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations is two years. If you wait too long, you will be barred from suing, no matter how bad you truly need the compensation. Do not wait.
