After receiving the appropriate care, do not delay in obtaining the names and contact information of any witnesses, including restaurant employees who may have witnessed your fall and subsequent injuries. Often our clients wrongfully believe that if we can prove they fell at the restaurant, they automatically have a valuable personal injury case. Actually, proving what caused the fall is more legally significant than most can appreciate. Florida law does not automatically recognize the right to hold a restaurant responsible for your injuries simply because a fall occurs on their premises. Rather, one has to prove that the business owner knew or should have known of the dangerous condition that caused the fall or created the condition.
