Causes of Restaurant Accidents:
Food poisoning, the most common restaurant accident, may have multiple opportunities to thrive in a restaurant. Preparation, handling and storage of food are all points where contamination may occur.
Employee hygiene should exceed required standards to ensure sanitary environments. Cross-contamination between raw and cooked foods can occur if they are prepared on the same cutting board or surface unless proper sanitation procedures are followed to the letter. Those accidental restaurant accidents are caused by negligence, but some malicious acts are performed by employees; affected restaurant patrons can suffer needless pain and discomfort.
The deliberate introduction of bone chips, dirt, metal pieces, and bodily fluids is criminal and can cause severe illness or death.
Outside the restaurant, patrons may suffer slip and fall injuries in parking lots, decks, walkways. Dark interiors may also present problems for older persons who cannot see debris or trip hazards like carpet or entry mat wrinkles. Attorneys at Howard Kitay Law Firm have extensive experience representing clients who have been injured in Chula Vista restaurant accidents.
Investigators and expert witnesses are utilized to help prove negligence in personal injury lawsuits.

Chula Vista Restaurant Accident Claims
Fast food restaurants have a higher incidence of accidents because they serve a greater number of people. The employees must work fast and accidents often occur. A large amount of contaminated food could be served before it is even noticed. That does not excuse them from keeping their premises and food safe and healthy for patrons. Injuries at restaurants may include many expenses, such as the following potential claims areas:
- Medical care costs
- Lost wages due to inability to work
