Restaurant slip-and-fall accidents may result in medical problems

An outing at a restaurant or another public facility in West Virginia may end up costing a person more than expected if the individual slips and falls on the property. When slip-and-fall accidents occur due to negligence on the part of the property owner, the owner may be held accountable for any injuries that result. One woman in another state recently claimed that she slipped and fell at a Taco Bell restaurant and is now suing the eatery.

The woman said she was filling up a cup of soda at the fast food restaurant while dining there with her spouse. She said that, in the area of the restaurant's drink station, she slipped on a substance that was slimy and greasy, and she ended up falling on the floor. The woman said the fall has caused her to incur medical expenses. She said she also endured mental anguish and physical pain, and she suffered disfigurement as well.

Taco Bell, which responded to the suit, denied the woman's claims. The restaurant said that the company did not bear any responsibility for the woman's alleged damages. In her lawsuit, the woman is seeking a judgment along with interest, costs and legal fees as well as other relief deemed just by the court.

Slip-and-fall accidents in West Virginia can change a person's life in an instant. Depending on how a person falls, he or she can suffer injuries to the spine, brain, back and other areas of the body that prevent him or her from being able to work normally. The victim may also accrue hefty medical bills due to treatment needed to address the injuries. Any person injured in this type of accident has the right to assess all legal options for correcting any wrongs that allegedly took place.
