How can I recover compensation after a restaurant accident?

After a restaurant accident, the first step you should take is to retain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney. Your attorney will work to collect evidence to support your claim. They will work to prove that the negligent party is responsible for your injury by using pictures and videos of the scene of the accident, witness statements, medical documentation relating to your injuries, police reports, and more.

To get started with this process as soon as possible, give our firm a call today. We are prepared to take on your case when you are ready.

What is the statute of limitations for restaurant accident claims in California?

In California, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is generally two years. This means that you must file your personal injury claim within two years from the date of your accident. This timeframe is important to understand because failure to file your claim within two years may result in you being permanently time-barred from suing. To avoid this and to get started with this process as soon as possible, give our experienced Santa Clara County personal injury attorneys a call today.
