Accidents and Injuries at Fast Food Establishments

Every day, millions of Americans visit fast food establishments for a quick meal on-the-go for a low price. Some may use the drive-thru while others will enter the building and have a seat at a booth to enjoy their meal. Though this is a common procedure that many people engage in on a daily basis, it is important to know that there are some risks associated with fast food restaurants that may lead to accident or injury.

Employees, management staff and maintenance crews are responsible for making sure that their restaurant is clean and safe for all patrons and free of hazardous conditions that may threaten the wellbeing of their guests. When this is not done and an accident or injury occurs, the restaurant staff may be held responsible for any damages that resulted because of their negligence. To learn more about your rights as an injury victim following an accident at a fast food establishment, call the Phoenix personal injury lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C., at 800-763-0964 today.

Fast Food Restaurant Hazards

The following accidents may occur at a fast food restaurant due to the negligent behavior of the staff:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents due to wet or greasy floors
  • Contraction of a food-borne illness from unsanitary conditions or improper food handling or preparation
  • Contraction of an infection due to unsanitary conditions of the restaurant or bathroom
  • Choking due to non-edible objects within the food items
  • Burn injuries from food served at excessively hot temperatures

Though the above list comprises some relatively common incidents, it is by no means exhaustive. If you have sustained an injury of any kind at a fast food restaurant, you should speak with an experienced attorney to see if you have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. Every injury should be treated seriously, particularly if it is caused by another party's irresponsible behavior.
