McDonald's sued for several dangerous conditions

Restaurants are the setting for many serious accidents. There is a high level of traffic and visitors, food and alcohol being served, cleanliness standards to comply with and employers and employees who must address changing conditions on a regular basis. 

Unfortunately, because of all that happens in these environments, hazards do exist and can pose a threat to others if they are not cleaned up, addressed or repaired. Recently, for example, a McDonald's restaurant in another state faced allegations that it was negligent in many ways that contributed to a violent assault.

According to reports, an officer was injured after responding to reports that an employee was involved in a physical fight. At first, nothing appeared to be going on when police arrived, but shortly after, the employee punched the officer, beat him several times and tried to take his holstered gun.

The officer suffered injuries that left him unable to work for a few days.

The man accused of the assault is facing criminal charges and a civil claim has also been filed against McDonald's. According to the officer's lawsuit, the restaurant is being accused of negligent hiring practices because it knew or should have known the employee posed a threat of violence due to a mental condition. Previous reports of the employee's violent tendencies have also been made.

Further, the officer is arguing that he was injured when he slipped in grease and water that was on the floor in the restaurant kitchen.

These types of claims can be particularly complicated, and it can be quite intimidating to face a company as large as McDonald's. However, with legal support and representation, victims of similar accidents in Miami can pursue the legal and financial accountability they deserve.
