Canopy Umbrella Injury Accident Attorneys

restaurant canopy umbrella falling head sue injury attorney
Recent situations have forced many industries to change the way they conduct their businesses. One of these industries is the restaurant industry. Restaurants were allowed to remain open for pick-up orders; indoor dining has been strictly limited. On the contrary, outdoor dining has been encouraged. Because of this, many restaurants that didn’t previously offer outdoor seating have made important changes that have allowed them to serve their guests safely while remaining outdoors.

No one wants to sit and eat a meal in the hot sun. As the weather warmed up and as more restaurants implemented outdoor dining, it became common to see outdoor tables equipped with umbrellas or canopies. Although this set up has allowed restaurants to effectively serve their guests within the pandemic restrictions, the set up has also resulted in an increased risk to guests. Specifically, the canopy and umbrellas frequently seen at these restaurants have resulted in incidents and injuries to unsuspecting restaurant guests. In such situations, the victim can sue the restaurant for the falling canopy which resulted in injury.

Unfortunately, umbrella fall accidents (or canopy fall accidents) can happen at any time. Whether the canopy or umbrella is defective, installed incorrectly, or not properly maintained, it can fall and strike anyone who is sitting under it or standing/walking nearby. Because of the nature of the incident, the most common types of injuries surrounding the incident include head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, facial injuries, cranial/facial fractures, and eye injuries, for example. However, other injuries, such as neck injuries, back injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, lacerations, scrapes, and bruises, are also likely depending on the details surrounding the incident.

Understanding Liability Canopy or Umbrella Incidents
Liability is typically based on the following – you are owed a duty of care that was breached, resulting in an incident and injuries. Who is liable for the harm that you or a member of your family suffered in an umbrella accident or canopy fall accident at a restaurant or another public place? The answer to this question will depend on the specific cause surrounding the accident.

Consider some of the following scenarios:

  • The incident was a direct result of the negligence of the restaurant owner. The restaurant owner had a duty of care to ensure that the entire premises was safe for guests. The restaurant owner had the duty to inspect the premises and identify and address any hazards that could put guests at risk of suffering harm. If the restaurant owner failed to identify or address any dangers with their umbrellas or canopies, such as lose screws, incorrect installations, or broken parts, for instance, they can breach their duty of care towards their guests and put them at risk of suffering incidents.
  • The incident was a direct result of the negligence of the product manufacturer. Restaurant owners purchase equipment, such as canopies and umbrellas, from other companies. These companies have a duty of care to their consumers. They have the duty to ensure that their products are completely safe for their consumers to use. They must thoroughly test and inspect their products to be ensure that they are safe for their consumers to use. However, these companies can breach their duty of care and release defective product to consumers; this puts their consumers at risk of suffering incidents.

So, who is liable for the harm that you or a member of your family suffered due to an umbrella or canopy falling incident? If the owner failed to identify or address the dangers on the premises, the owner could be liable; therefore, you could pursue a premise liability claim against the owner. However, if the manufacturing company failed to identify and address the dangerous present in their products, the company could be liable; therefore, you could pursue a product liability claim against the manufacturer.

Our lawyers are ready to provide you with the guidance that you need to understand your right to sue and recover the compensation that you are owed.

File Your Claim Within the Deadline
canopy fell on your head injury lawsuitAre you interested in pursuing a claim for the canopy umbrella fall incident that you or a member of your family suffered? If so, you must act quickly, as your claim is subject to a strict deadline. More specifically, injury claims are subject to a statute of limitations, which determines the time that claimants have to sue. If claimants do not file their claims on time, they will lose their right to sue. How long do you have to file your claim? Typically, in the state of California, injury claims are subject to a two-year statute of limitations (which gives claimants only two years to sue). However, it is possible for exceptions to apply – exceptions which could toll (or pause) the applicable statute of limitations. To ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the time that you have to file your claim, contact our firm as soon as possible.
