Slip-and-fall accidents may occur at fast-food eateries

A woman in another state recently claimed that she suffered injuries at a McDonald's restaurant due to the staff's carelessness. She has thus filed a lawsuit against the fast-food eatery, seeking damages. In the same way, customers in West Virginia 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 restaurant 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 restaurant did not offer sufficient warnings about the dangerous condition of the floor. In addition, the eatery did not offer a safe egress for customers to move around. As part of her lawsuit, the woman is seeking damages of over $50,000.

Business owners in West Virginia and elsewhere are expected to keep up their properties so as to prevent their patrons 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.
