Brain injury results in man's death, lawsuit blames restaurant

When people are participating in activities at their supermarket or other local establishments, they often do not think twice about their chances of getting critically hurt. However, because some business owners in Montana neglect to properly maintain the premises of their facility, it could leave customers at an increased risk of suffering an injury. 

For one family in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the tragic death of their loved one has led to a lawsuit alleging that a restaurant's negligence in maintaining their premises ultimately caused their family member's injury. The incident began when the man was entering the restaurant when he fell down after tripping over a section of the sidewalk that was uneven and poorly maintained. The man suffered an anoxic brain injury and only 10 days later, he passed away. 

The man's family and spouse are claiming that the restaurant acted negligently in their efforts to properly maintain the entrance to their establishment, as well as failing to inform customers that a potential hazard existed. The lawsuit they filed is seeking an unspecified amount. Efforts to contact the restaurant regarding the case have been unsuccessful. 

If people have suffered a catastrophic injury because of the negligence of another person or business, they may want to hire an attorney. Working with a legal professional may enable them to gather evidence from the case that supports their position in seeking compensation for the trauma that has been endured. With the right help, people may have a better chance of successfully winning their case.
