Experienced NYC Injury Lawyers Representing Individuals Injured in Bars & Restaurants

New York City has countless bars and restaurants spread throughout the city. Your night out on the town should be a pleasurable experience, but it is not unusual for patrons to suffer injuries.

At our firm, we have met with many clients who were injured in a bar or restaurant and have significant medical expenses as a result. If you were injured, contact one of our premises liability attorneys in New York City for help with your case.

Types of Accidents We Handle

A patron can be injured in many ways, including:

  • Slip and falls A patron can slip on slick spots on the floor. If a patron or server spills a drink or bowl of soup, the restaurant should mop it up quickly so that a patron’s feet do not go out from under him.
  • Trip and fall Improperly placed mats and rugs can pose a trip hazard. Other patrons can trip on debris left on the floor or in the parking lot by tripping over a pothole. Stairs that are improperly maintained or that are poorly lit can also lead to trips and falls.
  • Food poisoning. Improperly prepared food can cause food poisoning. Patrons can catch salmonella, E. coli, and other contaminants.
  • Injured caused by criminal activity. A bar or restaurant should provide adequate security for its patrons. If you were assaulted in an establishment or the parking lot, you might be able to bring a claim for negligent security.

Some restaurants are safer than others, but you should take every injury seriously. Remember to hold onto proof that you were at the restaurant, such as a credit card or a receipt. Your New York City premises liability lawyer will have other ideas for proving that you were injured.

Bar and Restaurant Injuries

A patron can suffer many serious injuries, including:

  • Broken bones. A fall can break many bones, including those in the hands, arms, and legs. Fractures will need to be set so that they can heal properly.
  • Soft-tissue injuries. A patron who falls can suffer a sprain, strain, or contusion.
  • Cuts or lacerations. If a bowl or glass is broken, it can cut a patron.
  • Burns. Liquids or foods that are very hot can burn patrons. Servers should warn customers when something is hot.
  • Brain injuries. If a patron falls, they can hit their head on something, such as the steps, the table, or the floor. A concussion or other brain injury can be very difficult to recover from.
  • Death. A patron could suffer serious injuries, and even death, if they have a negative reaction to food poisoning.
