Cook County Circuit Court gets slip-and-fall complaint

Keeping restaurants clean and sanitary is a duty of almost every worker. Part of doing this is ensuring that the floor is cleaned. When employees are cleaning the floor, they must make sure that they warn customers that the floor might be hazardous. One way for them to do this is to place "Wet Floor" signs near the area of the floor that has been mopped. A lack of warning signs can lead to an injury that can greatly affect the customer.

A recent lawsuit filed in the Cook County Circuit Court highlights the importance of proper warnings for customers when a floor is mopped in a restaurant. The lawsuit pertains to a woman who alleges she went to a McDonald's restaurant in Palos Hills. She says that the floor was wet, and she fell. According to the May 23 lawsuit, the woman suffered injuries in the May 26, 2012 fall.

She has opted to sue several defendants, including S&K Management Co., two individuals, McDonald's Store No. 03796 and McDonald's Corp., in the premises liability lawsuit. She is asking for damages in excess of $50,000. Her lawsuit claims the defendants didn't warn customers about the hazardous floor conditions at the time of her fall.

Being hurt because you weren't warned of unsafe conditions is a horrible experience. If you had to miss work because of the accident, your income is affected. If you required medical treatment, your finances are affected. Seeking compensation for these claims might help you to win a settlement that can help to alleviate some of the financial pressure associated with the incident.
