Kansas City Restaurant Accident Attorney

Restaurant Accident Lawyer Kansas City

Restaurants are wonderful places to spend a Friday night with your significant other, friends, or family members after a long and productive week at work. Unfortunately, letting your guard down at a restaurant is a terrible mistake, because you can get injured at your favorite restaurant when you expect it the least.

Yes, in the vast majority of cases, people spend quality time at restaurants in Kansas City and all across Missouri without incidents and traumatic events. But there are cases when unsuspecting visitors and customers get injured at a restaurant.

Restaurant accidents and the restaurant’s liability

Restaurant accidents can range from the classic slip and fall accident due to wet or slippery floor near the restroom area to allergic reactions, food poisoning, assaults, and even burn injuries.

Yep, apparently, many things can go wrong when you are eating out at a restaurant. And while Missouri’s premises liability law lets you recover damages if you can prove that the owner of the restaurant or the restaurant’s workers failed to maintain the premises in a safe condition and take all reasonable precautions to protect you from harm, doing so is not always easy.

For this reason, regardless of the type of injury that you suffered at a restaurant, you may want to speak to a Kansas City restaurant accident attorney at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., to ensure that you are getting the monetary compensation that you deserve.

A restaurant’s duties of care in Missouri

We rarely expect or think about the worst outcome of doing something that we genuinely enjoy, and going to a restaurant is no exception. That’s why many times, restaurant-goers are not aware of their rights and fail to recover damages or accept a low-ball settlement that does not represent the real value of the compensation that they deserve.

“A restaurant can be held liable for your injury in many ways,” says our experienced restaurant accident attorney in Kansas City. “Whether or not you are entitled to file a premises liability lawsuit against the restaurant will depend on whether the owner of the restaurant and/or his or her workers (managers, chefs, waiters, janitors, etc.) broke one or several of their duties of care.”

Some of you might wonder, “What duties do restaurant owners have in Missouri?” The following are the most basic duties of care that restaurants have in our state:

  • Maintaining the premises in a reasonably safe condition and free of any hazards;
  • Eliminating dangerous conditions on the property within a reasonable amount of time upon discovery or complaint from visitors or customers;
  • Warning customers and visitors of any hidden and non-obvious hazards on the property;
  • Maintaining a safe passageway from the eating area to the restroom;
  • Ensuring that the floor is not slippery or wet, especially in and near the restroom;
  • Properly inspecting and maintaining seats, stools, tables, and other pieces of furniture;
  • Properly inspecting and maintaining elevators, escalators, stairways, and parking lots;
  • Properly inspecting and maintaining electrical equipment that customers may have access to (sockets, plugs, etc.);
  • Properly train members of restaurant staff; and
  • Properly store food products and properly cook foods to avoid food poisoning.

This is not a full list of duties of care that restaurants have in Kansas City and all across Missouri. Speak to our Kansas City restaurant accident lawyer from Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., to discuss your particular situation.
