Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of restaurant injuries?

Restaurant injuries occur for a wide variety of reasons, though they are most commonly due to the negligence of restaurant management or staff. Some of the most common types of restaurant injuries our firm sees include burns, food poisoning, slips and falls due to spills left uncleaned, trips and falls due to poor lighting or faulty steps, and more.

What should I do if I am injured in a restaurant?

If you are in a restaurant, you will have to hire an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney who can gather and present enough evidence to prove that the restaurant owner or staff knew or should have reasonably known about the unsafe restaurant conditions, failed to fix them, and that you were injured and incurred significant damages as a result. This is not always easy, which is why you need an attorney that has been doing so for years. We will use witness testimony, pictures of the safety hazard, surveillance footage of the accident as it happened, a copy of the incident report filed at the scene of the accident and more to prove your claim.

How long will I have to sue a restaurant for my injuries in New Jersey?

If you are injured in a restaurant in New Jersey, you must ensure that you file your personal injury claim within the state’s statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New Jersey is, under most circumstances, two years, you will, generally, have two years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible for your injuries. If you wait any longer than two years to sue, however, you may be permanently time-barred from doing so. Our firm can begin the claims process today–all you have to do is give us a call.
