Slip and Fall at Burger King? Our Lawyers Can Help
Burger King is an American global chain of hamburger fast food restaurants. As of December 31, 2016, there were 15,738 Burger King outlets in 100 countries, with 34,248 employees. Nearly 20 million people visit Burger King every month.
With a large worldwide presence and millions of customers, Burger King’s employees may often fail to notice several of the spills that take place in the restaurant, and may not clean up the spills in a timely manner so as to prevent customers from slipping, tripping and falling. Or they may fail to warn of hazardous conditions that could cause customers to slip, trip and fall. Burger King’s employees have a duty to ensure that their customers are kept safe while they are dining in the restaurant, or simply waiting in line to be served.

What Kind of Injuries Have Burger King Customers Suffered?
Most slip and fall accidents at Burger King have not resulted in severe or life-threatening injuries. However, there are times when customers slip, trip and fall and, as a result, become seriously injured. For example, there are many dangers present in Burger King, such as spilled drinks that can cause floors to become wet, unattended spills that can result in sticky floors and a build-up of grease on tile floors that can lead to slippery surfaces.
Among the outdoor hazards are cold weather conditions, which can result in icy sidewalks and parking lots, and heavy rains that can create standing water or mud-covered walkways.
