One of the most common ways people get hurt at a restaurant is not actually inside the building but outside in the parking lot. If the pavement is uneven or broken, people are much more likely to trip and fall. Also, if a parking lot is not well-lit at night, people may not be able to see curbs or other obstructions. Falling on a hard, paved parking lot can cause serious damage to a person’s body, especially in elderly customers.
Spills are inevitable in a restaurant. They are expected, which means that when they happen, staff should clean them up immediately. It’s not only the liquid on the floor that can cause slip and fall accidents, but food as well. Injuries from slip and fall accidents are preventable if restaurant staff does their job.
Carpeting and mats used inside a restaurant in patron areas should not be bunched up or wet. If they are, people are much more likely to trip and fall. All rails and stairs inside and outside of a restaurant should be properly maintained so they are stable for patrons.
Restaurants often serve food on plates that are very hot. This can be an attraction for some people, but the staff should properly warn patrons when their plate is too hot to touch. If they don’t customers could get badly burned.
More than anything, you expect your food to be of a high quality at a restaurant. If you are served bad food and get food poisoning, you could be hospitalized for a length of time. All food should be stored at correct temperatures. Any spoiled food should be disposed of immediately and not served to customers Also, restaurant cooks are required to cook meat appropriately.
