Restaurant Accidents and Negligence

Florida Restaurant Injury Lawyer for Falls, Food Poisoning & More

Restaurants present a variety of risks for injury. From spills to overcrowding, and from torn carpeting to drunk patrons, several issues can lead to accidents and altercations resulting in serious injuries. If you have been injured in a restaurant, you may have a claim against the restaurant owner, and you should speak with a Florida restaurant accident lawyer about your legal rights.

Common Claims Against Restaurants in Florida

There are various circumstances in which Florida residents and visitors can pursue personal injury claims against restaurant owners. Like all businesses, restaurants have a legal obligation to ensure that their premises are reasonably safe for their customers. If a restaurant fails to meet this obligation, then it can be held liable for negligence under Florida law. Some common examples of restaurant owner negligence include:

  • Failing to clean up spills
  • Failing to repair torn carpeting, cracked steps or other safety hazards
  • Failing to provide adequate security
  • Hiring inexperienced or unqualified staff (including cooks)
  • Serving food that was not stored or prepared properly
  • Serving expired food
  • Exceeding the restaurant’s capacity limit
  • Overserving drunk patrons

If you were injured as a result of one of these issues – or any other issue – in a Florida restaurant, our lawyers may be able to help you recover just compensation. This includes compensation for the financial and non-financial costs of your injuries, from medical bills and lost wages to pain and suffering. If you are entitled to financial compensation, our Florida restaurant injury lawyers will work closely with you, your doctors and other experts in order to accurately calculate the full amount you are entitled to recover.
