Carrabba’s Italian Grill Restaurant Accidents
The first Carrabba’s Italian Grill was opened in 1986 in Texas by Johnny Carrabba and his uncle Damian Mandola. The menu features an array of Sicilian recipes passed down by Mandola’s mother and sister. By 1993, the company opened Carrabba’s Italian Grill restaurants in Florida. Today, Carrabba’s is owned by Bloomin’ Brands. There are 69 Carrabba’s Italian Grill locations throughout Florida, including such cities as Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa, Fort Myers, and North Palm Beach.
Carrabba’s can be a great place to enjoy an Italian-inspired meal. Patrons can opt for their traditional lasagne dinner or taste the many wood-grilled dishes on the menu. Whether it is a couple’s night out or the weekly family dinner, you can expect to find something to your liking on Carrabba’s menu.
But no one expects to get hurt at a Carrabba’s Italian Grill while enjoying a night out. Yet restaurants and bars often present hazards that put patrons in harm’s way. There are many dangers present at restaurants and bars, such as:
- Floors wet from spilled drinks, leaking beverage machines, or overflowing sinks in the bathroom may cause a patron to slip and fall.
- Wait staff who spills hot coffee on a patron could lead to severe burns.
- Patrons can trip and fall over furniture placed closely together, broken steps, or debris in the walkways.
- Meals served on hot plates can cause burns when touching the skin.
- Parking lots with hidden curbs, potholes, or broken walkways may result in a trip and fall accident.
- Food that is undercooked or ingredients not stored properly may cause someone to get sick.
- Poor exterior lighting around the walking areas and parking lot may lead to falls or criminal activity.
Under premise liability laws, the responsibility that restaurant owners or operators have to people depends on why they are on the property. To a restaurant patron, owners and operators owe the highest level of responsibility to:
- Maintain a safe property and protect invitees from the dangers they should be aware of. When an owner or operator becomes aware of such hazards, they should take reasonable steps to fix the damage or notify the patron of the danger.
- Warn patrons of concealed dangers that are or should be known by the owner or operator.
When the owner or operator of a Carrabba’s doesn’t take the appropriate steps to ensure the safety of people invited to their property, they may be considered negligent. And if you were deeply injured as a result, you may be entitled to financial damages to pay for;
- Your medical treatment, hospital or emergency room visit, medication, rehabilitation, and other related expenses.
- Necessary future care when your injuries are permanent
- Lost income if you can’t work during your recovery
- If your injuries are life-changing and affect your ability to earn a living, you may be compensated for your loss of future wages.
- Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, consortium loss, and mental distress.
