What to Know About Red Robin Restaurants in Georgia
Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Brews, also known simply as Red Robin, began in 1969 in Seattle, Washington. The building where Red Robin first opened was initially known as “Sam’s Tavern,” but the owner changed it to Red Robin in honor of the song “When the Red, Red Robin (Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin’ Along)” that he was known to sing with his barbershop quartet.
Red Robin has more than 560 casual dining restaurants open with a portion of those operating as franchised locations. Red Robin restaurants can be found in the following Georgia cities:
- Buford (Mall of Georgia)
- Evans (Mullins Crossing)
- Newnan (Newnan Crossing)
- Cumming (The Collection at Forsyth)
- Snellville (The Shoppes at Webb Gin)
Red Robin offers a variety of unique burger combinations, bottomless fries, specialty sauces, salads, wraps, soups, and more.
If you were hurt at a Red Robin location, don’t assume you don’t have options. If there’s a chance the store was at fault for your injuries, you’ll want to speak with a lawyer who can examine your case. You might be entitled to compensation for your costs.
Injuries That Can Happen at Red Robin in Georgia
Any type of injury can result from a slip and fall accident, ranging from minor to very severe. A “slip and fall” might not sound that serious, but many people are surprised to learn just how much damage slipping and falling can cause.
Some of the most common types of injuries we see from slip and fall accidents at restaurants include:
- Cuts, scrapes, and bruises
- Broken bones or fractures
- Spinal injuries
- Concussion or other traumatic brain injuries
- Head or neck injuries
Restaurant accidents don’t always have to involve slips and falls, either. People can become injured from hot foods or beverages or other hazards. No matter how you were injured, you may have a case if the restaurant was not careful enough to prevent, fix, or warn you about the hazardous condition.
Examples of Slip and Fall Hazards at Red Robin
While many managers and employees are responsible and careful at their jobs, that’s not always the case. Just one negligent employee can lead to an injury if they are not careful to watch for potential hazards. Seemingly minor issues can quickly become dangerous.
Slip and fall hazards that can easily become a problem at a restaurant like Red Robin include:
- Uneven flooring or pavement
- Melted ice, rain, or snow near entrances or exits
- Curled up or torn rugs or carpeting
- Spilled food or beverages
- Potholes in the parking lot
- Poor or inadequate lighting
- Broken stairs
- Missing rails
- Unmarked steps
- Mopped or waxed floors without “wet floor” warning signs
- And more
Proving Liability in Your Slip and Fall Case
If a slip and fall accident was not your fault, the burden of proof is still on you. If you can demonstrate the restaurant’s fault and liability in your injury accident, you can seek compensation as damages (Georgia Code § 51-12-4). You will have to prove the following in your slip and fall claim:
- The restaurant owed you a duty of care.
- That duty of care was breached.
- The breached duty resulted in your slip and fall accident and injuries.
- You suffered damages as a result of the accident.
Besides proving the above points, you’ll need to handle with Red Robin’s insurance company. When you file a personal injury claim, you’re typically dealing with the at-fault party’s insurer more than anything—and insurance companies don’t like to “fight fair.”
Insurance companies care most about their bottom line, so they will look for ways to reduce what they have to pay. That may include looking for ways to blame you for the accident (while reducing the restaurant’s liability), downplay your injuries, get information from you that can be used against you, or trying to get you to accept a lower settlement than you deserve.
To accurately show what happened during the accident and protect your legal rights, you’ll want to hire the help of a slip and fall lawyer who is experienced in these types of cases. They will work to show how the restaurant was at fault for your accident and why they owe you compensation.
