There is a common perception that people sue for reasons that are quite specious. Among the most popular cases to deride are those that involve someone getting hurt at a commercial establishment. There are usually disparaging remarks about the filer's intelligence and ethical nature thrown around. These statements are oftentimes made in complete ignorance of reality. When someone is hurt at a commercial property, there is certainly responsibility that lies somewhere. A good slip and fall lawyer knows how to find who is responsible and to hold them accountable for the injuries sustained.
One of the most common places to get hurt is at a restaurant. This usually happens due to poor hygiene on the part of the establishment, with spills and other slick spots being left on the floor while customers are about. There is no reason that this should be the case. Simply put, if a restaurant cannot guarantee a safe environment for their patrons, that restaurant should not be in business. No one enters a dining establishment with the impression that they need no-slip boots and a hardhat to be safe, nor should they.
