North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyers
A person from another state recently claimed that she suffered injuries at a local fast-food establishment due to the carelessness of the staff. She recently filed a lawsuit against the fast-food establishment, seeking damages for the injuries she received. In the same way, customers in North Carolina who suffer injuries in slip-and-fall accidents or other types of accidents at businesses due to property owners’ carelessness have the right to seek damages in civil court.
In the recent out-of-state case, the woman claimed that she was at the McDonald’s establishment back in April. All of a sudden, she reportedly stepped on a wet floor and fell. The alleged fall caused her to suffer permanent and severe injuries.
According to the woman, the establishment did not offer sufficient warnings about the Hazardous condition of the floor. In addition, the restaurant did not offer a safe outlet for customers to move around. As part of her lawsuit, the woman is seeking damages of over $70,000.
Business owners in North Carolina and elsewhere are expected to keep up their establishments so as to prevent their customers from getting injured on them. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. If customers end up suffering harm in slip-and-fall accidents due to the business owners’ negligence, it is within their rights to file premises liability claims against these business owners. A successfully fought liability suit might lead to a damage award that may help the plaintiff to cover his or her medical bills as well as the loss of income, in the event that he or she could not return to work immediately following the incident.
If you or a family member have had an accident at a fast-food restaurant or any other type of business, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries, medical bills and loss of wages. Contact the King Law Firm Today for a free case evaluation
