People venture to bars and restaurants for entertainment, social get-togethers, and distraction from everyday pressures. It is unfortunate when an accident occurs and, suddenly, a leisurely event turns tragic. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury in an accident in a bar or restaurant, or if injuries resulted from the establishment’s negligent service of alcohol, you may have a right to be compensated for your injuries. Our New Jersey restaurant accident lawyers can help.

The Epstein Law Firm represents victims in bar and restaurant accident cases, working diligently to hold the establishments accountable for injuries and fatalities caused by their negligence.

Slip and Fall Accidents in Bars and Restaurants — Commercial Liability

Commercial businesses have a duty to keep their property safe for their customers and employees. Bars and restaurants are prone to beverage spills, trays being dropped, and other incidents that cause the floors to be wet, slippery, or cluttered with debris — factors that can lead to serious trip and fall or slip and fall accidents. It is the establishment’s responsibility to have policies in place to deal with these spills promptly and appropriately so that customers and employees are not put at risk. Our New Jersey restaurant accident lawyers handle claims involving:

  • Slip and falls involving customers who slip on wet floors
  • Trip and falls involving customers who stumble on food or other debris
  • Trip and falls involving customers who trip due to inadequate lighting or signage
  • Injuries sustained by customers as a result of an assault on the property

Likewise, if an employee is injured in a slip and fall or trip and fall while working, we can assist the employee in recovering rightful workers’ compensation benefits.

New Jersey Restaurant Accident Lawyers

Many bar and restaurant-related incidents occur as a result of the negligent service of alcohol. Any establishment that serves alcohol to patrons has a responsibility to serve alcohol responsibly. This means that they must take special precautions not to serve alcohol to minors. It also means that bartenders and servers must use common sense when serving alcohol. If a customer is visibly intoxicated, he or she should not be served more alcoholic beverages.

Our New Jersey Restaurant Accident Lawyers hold bars, restaurants, and other liquor-serving establishments accountable for alcohol-related accidents (also called dram shop accidents ) in which the negligent service of alcohol was a contributing factor to the accident, including:

  • Bar fights and assaults instigated by overly intoxicated customers
  • Drunk driving accidents caused by overly intoxicated customers
  • Alcohol poisoning suffered by customers who were served too much alcohol
  • Other accidents or incidents resulting from the negligent alcohol service
