Washington DC and Maryland Restaurant Accidents and Injuries Law Firm

Washington DC is a popular destination for many reasons including the opportunity to enjoy and experience many international dining options.  The District is home to restaurants serving food from every corner of the globe. The suburbs which surround D.C. also boast some of the best restaurants with a wide variety of tastes from which to choose.  Bethesda, Silver Spring, Falls Church and Alexandria offer cuisine from far away places without the expense of travel. 

Restaurant trips range from the routine lunch trip during a work break to the special occasion such as an anniversary or birthday. Some dining experiences are long-awaited and some are spur of the moment excursions. Whatever the reason, everyone enjoys the convenience of choosing from a larger selection of dining options than one has at home, and of not cooking and cleaning. 

You Leave a Little Hungrier, And Hurt

However, sometimes things do not go according to plan and your restaurant experience leaves you a little hungrier in more ways than one. 

Restaurants have a duty of care to you and they must take steps and precautions to prevent injuries. Restaurant accidents happen when you chip or lose a tooth because someone in the kitchen was not careful in preparing your meal. Diners are injured when a sloppy restaurant fails to adequately refrigerate some food items and you become very ill. A restaurant is negligent when an employee spills boiling water to cause serious burns. If you slip and fall in a restaurant due to the restaurant’s failure to clean, then they have failed in their duty of care.

Our firm represents individuals who have been injured in restaurant accidents and injuries. We have the experience of going up against restaurants and large insurance companies, in order to help put your life back together following an accident. If a restaurant caused your injury, our experts and lawyers will find the evidence. Our job is to then hold the owner responsible for causing you to suffer a serious injury.

Contact us for a full investigation of your case in order to determine whether negligence was the cause of your injury. If there was negligence, we will find the evidence. And if you suffered a serious injury, you could be entitled to compensation for lost wages, future wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.

When Should I Contact a Lawyer?

There is a time limit for initiating a personal injury lawsuit. In Washington, D.C. and Maryland you have three years from the date of the injury to make a claim.  

These types of cases require extensive investigation including attempting to determine prior accident history, ownership and control documentation and prior complaints. So it is very important to move quickly if we are to pursue a cause of action against the responsible party. If you wait too long, you may be unable to file suit. 

When you reach out to us, your personal injury attorney will thoroughly analyze your case and conduct a full investigation to determine what went wrong.
