What are the most common causes of restaurant accidents?
Restaurant accidents can happen for several reasons, though they are frequently caused by negligence. Some of the most common causes and types of restaurant accidents include the following:
- Slip and falls due to spilled liquids
- Insufficient lighting leading to trip and fall accidents
- Poor security
- Parking lot accidents
- Food poisoning
How do I prove a personal injury claim?
To prove a personal injury claim, you will have to gather and present sufficient evidence. Some of the most effective evidence when proving a personal injury claim includes pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident, surveillance footage of your accident as it happened, photos of your injuries, witness statements verifying your claim, and more. You should also ensure that you call the police to the scene of the accident and that you seek medical treatment immediately after your accident occurs. Our firm can take it from there and work to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim.
How long will I have to file a personal injury claim in Maryland?
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims is the timeframe in which you will have to take legal action against the liable party. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is, in most cases, three years, meaning that you will, generally, have three years from the date of your accident to sue the restaurant for your injuries. Our firm can help you today. All you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
