Possible Slip and Fall Hazards at Quiznos
Slip and fall accidents are some of the most common injury accidents that occur in Georgia. Slip and fall hazards are especially common at restaurants like Quiznos where things can spill, fall, or become broken and cause someone to slip and fall.
Slip and fall hazards or dangerous conditions that can happen at Quiznos include:

- Water or urine on bathroom floors
- Uneven or broken pavement
- Curled up or frayed rugs or carpeting
- Water at the entrances or exits
- Poor lighting
- Broken stairs or stairs without railings
Negligence is most important in a slip and fall claim. In other words, you’ll need to show that the restaurant was negligent in your accident. It’s not enough for a hazard to have been present and caused your fall. You’ll also need to demonstrate that Quiznos employees failed to recognize and clean up the hazard within a reasonable amount of time.
You’ll also need to show that you could not have avoided the slip and fall hazard simply through being careful. The restaurant or their insurance company might try to say that you should have been able to prevent your accident even with the hazard present. You’ll need to have a defense ready for this in your case.

Building Your Claim

Your lawyer can also communicate and deal with the insurance company for you during the entire process.
Negotiating with the Insurance Company
Insurance companies rarely accept a victim’s request for compensation right away. It’s more likely that they’ll try to deny your claim or offer you an extremely low settlement. Your lawyer will then work to negotiate a settlement that is actually fair to you.
Most personal injury cases end during negotiation. However, if negotiation is not successful, you and your lawyer might begin preparing for trial.
