Restaurant Chair Collapse Accident AttorneysRochester, New York’s food scene, has a long and vibrant history that ties back to hot dog and hamburger stands. While maintaining its gastro roots, countless modern restaurants have significantly elevated the city’s dining experience for locals and visitors alike. Even if you seldom go out to eat, you might have sat in a chair that seemed unstable. While you may have instinctively changed chairs, many chair collapse accident victims fail to notice that something is wrong until their chair breaks. Unfortunately, by this point, they may have already suffered devastating injuries. Chairs at restaurants are often in use for many years. As chairs age, the materials can become less sturdy due to normal wear and tear. The wood may weaken, and different parts might become less snug. Loose screws and cracks in the wood can go undetected when staff fails to inspect chairs regularly. Eventually, when an unsuspecting patron sits on a weakened chair, its legs might collapse or snap off. Consequently, a lack of inspections and improper maintenance can result in devastating mishaps. The sooner damaged and broken chairs are found, the faster they can be fixed.

Victims can suffer destructive chair breakage accidents in any restaurant, from fast-food chains like Burger King to local fine dining restaurants such as Black & Blue Steak and Crab.

Injuries Suffered in Restaurant Chair Break Accidents

Restaurant Chair Collapse Accident AttorneysFor many restaurant-goers, eating out provides them with a wonderful opportunity to enjoy delicious food with family and friends. Most diners are more worried about eating something that does not taste good than getting hurt. Nevertheless, when restaurant owners and managers fail to ensure the safety of their customers, tragic accidents are bound to happen. When restaurateurs fail to perform routine inspections, regular maintenance, or make prompt repairs, patrons are placed in unnecessary danger. Some injuries that victims frequently suffer in restaurant chair collapse mishaps include:

  1. Dislocations;
  2. Acute strains and sprains;
  3. Severe soft tissue injuries;
  4. Muscle and nerve damage;
  5. Broken bones, particularly hands, wrists, arms, and ankles;
  6. Knee injuries, such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and medial collateral ligament (MCL) ruptures;
  7. Hip and pelvis fractures;
  8. Neck and back injuries;
  9. Ruptured and herniated discs;
  10. Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS);
  11. Concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs); and
  12. Paraplegia and quadriplegia.

The most severe injuries tend to occur when the chair that the victim was sitting on breaks and causes them to fall backward and hit their head. Additionally, when a chair collapses on concrete, close to windows, stairs, railings, or other edges, victims are highly susceptible to more grievous injuries.



What to Do After Your Restaurant Chair Failure Accident

It is important to always be mindful of where a chair is placed before sitting down. For instance, a chair on a restaurant’s patio could have one of its legs in a hole or dent that causes instability and heightens the risk of collapsing. Other chairs may be placed on uneven surfaces or missing the protective glides on the bottoms of their legs. Even slight differences can be enough to cause chair failures. The Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s highly qualified attorneys recommend taking the following steps after your restaurant chair breakage accident:

  1. Do Not Be Embarrassed: Chair failures are much more common than you might believe. It is important to remember that the accident was not your fault and that you were the victim of the restaurant’s negligence.
  2. Avoid Trying to Get Up Quickly: Many chair fall victims are humiliated and attempt to hastily get up before others notice. However, this could result in worsening the injuries that you have already sustained.
  3. Gather Evidence and Secure Witnesses: Take pictures of the restaurant, the broken chair, and your injuries. Additionally, if other restaurant-goers or staff witnessed your accident and can verify your story, ask for their contact details.
  4. File a Report: Request to talk to the restaurant manager and file an incident report.
  5. Seek Medical Treatment: Your health and well-being should always be your top priority. Thus, it is crucial to at least be examined by a doctor, especially if you suffered an injury.

Trying to pursue an injury claim on your own will likely result in the insurance adjusters offering you a lowball settlement or, even worse, denying your case altogether.
