Woman files lawsuit for injuries after fall outside restaurant

There is a considerable potential for individuals to become injured on other people's property. Whether it is a neighbor's yard or the parking lot of a chain store, property owners and operators are responsible for handling potentially hazardous conditions. If individuals do suffer serious injuries on someone's property, they may have reason to file legal claims for compensation.

New York residents may be interested in such a claim that was recently filed in another state. Reports indicated that a woman suffered injuries after falling on the sidewalk outside an Olive Garden restaurant. She claims that the rocks lining the sidewalk were uneven, and as a result, her foot got caught on one of the rocks. This incident led her to fall to the ground.

The fall resulted in an injury to her arm, but it was unclear how this injury may have affected her. Nonetheless, she has filed a legal claim against Darden Restaurants Inc., which owns the Olive Garden chain. She asserts that the company failed to inspect the premises and address the issue that led to her injury. She is seeking an unspecified amount of financial compensation.

When hazardous conditions lead to injuries, individuals may need medical attention, time away from work and other actions in order to recover. Unfortunately, the steps taken to recover could cause considerable personal and financial hardships. Therefore, New York residents who have suffered under such conditions may wish to consider filing premises liability claims against those responsible. Speaking with their legal counsel may allow them to better understand this option.
