Falls Due to Hazardous Conditions
In many cases, falls at McDonald’s occur due to hazardous conditions at its locations. Often times, the hazards are created by customers. The most common areas for these types of accidents are at soda machines due to customer spills and in bathrooms as a result of water on floors. While these are the most common areas for slip, trip, and falls, customers are also injured when customers accidently drop food and leave it behind. Although customers are the reason the hazardous conditions existed, employees are responsible for locating and eliminating hazards that exist on the premises. Otherwise, liability may result to the same extent regardless of whether the incident was caused by a customer or as a result of employee negligence.
Suing a McDonald’s for a slip, trip, and fall due to hazardous conditions is not limited to those conditions that merely exist inside the premises. Each location has an obligation to ensure that customers can safely travel around the premises. Problems with maintenance and upkeep of the premises can also lead to liability. Uneven pavement, sidewalks, or weather conditions can make it unsafe for travel in a particular area. If you are injured due to a hazardous condition, you deserve relief.
Reporting Your Injuries
It is important to report your injuries as soon as an accident occurs or as closely thereafter as possible. Even if you believe the injuries are not severe, reporting the incident is essential.
