Accidents at Restaurants

As patrons of a casual dining restaurant, we expect a high quality of service, superior food, sanitary conditions and an overall positive experience. However, restaurants can sometimes present an exorbitant amount of risk if negligent behavior is demonstrated by the kitchen staff, wait staff or management. Two primary risks of negligent behavior in restaurants are good poisoning and exposure of customers to allergens.

If you or someone you love became ill, hurt, or sustained injuries at a restaurant and believe that the negligent staff may be to blame, contact the Waukesha personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® by calling 1-800-242-2874.

Common Kitchen Accidents

In addition to food-related injuries and illness, other hazards exist at restaurants, including:

  • Greasy or wet floors, leading to slip-and-fall accidents
  • Unsanitary conditions in the kitchen, bathroom, or anywhere else in the restaurant, which could lead to infection
  • Injuries sustained by wait or cook staff, including repetitive stress injuries or injuries from knives or machinery
  • Accidents due to improper employee/cook training
  • Uncommon objects found within food, which could lead to choking
  • Falls from inept equipment, such as benches, chairs, booths or tables

If a staff member or maintenance team is behaving in a negligent manner and someone is hurt because of it, legal action should be taken. These individuals need to be held accountable for their actions and the best way to ensure that happens is in a court of law.
