New Orleans Restaurant Injury Lawyer for Accidents and Illnesses
Food is an important part of the culture in New Orleans, where visitors flock from around the globe in part to sample some of the area’s unique cuisine. Unfortunately, however, restaurants can also pose hazards to customers if the premises are not adequately maintained. From a slip and fall on a slick walkway to collision with a fast moving waiter carrying plates of food, accidents at restaurants can cause serious injuries. When you’re injured at a restaurant, a New Orleans restaurant injury lawyer at Bloom Legal can help.

Understanding How Premises Liability Claims Against Restaurants and Fast Food Chains
Anyone who is injured in an accident at a restaurant in Louisiana has the right to seek compensation from those responsible.
The money damages typically available in accident cases are designed to put the injured person back in the same financial position that he or she was in before the injury. Compensation typically covers current and future medical bills, as well as money for lost wages and any impact of the injury on your future earning capacity.
To get that compensation, the injured person and their New Orleans restaurant negligence lawyer have to prove legal liability. Restaurants, like other property owners, are expected to keep the premises in reasonably safe condition. They are also obligated to warn customers of certain hazards that the restaurant knows about or should be aware of through reasonable inspection.
Spills, for example, are common in busy restaurants. Management and staff are generally expected to clean and dry walking surfaces when spills happen to ensure the safety of customers and employees. In the event that is not possible, the restaurant should block off wet surfaces and post a sign or some other warning of the danger.
When a restaurant does not live up to its responsibility, the company is likely to be liable for any accidents that happen as a result. Restaurant management is also legally responsible for any injuries caused by cooks, servers and other employees acting in the course of their jobs.

Hear What Our Clients Have To Say
"I contacted Bloom Legal out of the blue with a strange question for a fiction series I’m writing that takes place in New Orleans. Being from Maryland I was in the dark and needed assistance and they jumped at the chance to help me (they were the only law firm that responded to my e-mail). His team worked quickly and carefully to find the information I needed. Because of the help they provided it changed a large aspect of my novel and for that I am very grateful."
