I tripped and fell and injured my ankle and knee at a Cambridge restaurant due to warn and frayed carpeting. There were several other patrons who tripped in the same spot before me, and this all happened in front of the hostess stand. I’ve had surgery and will continue physical therapy. Do I have a case against the restaurant and can I sue for damages as I will probably not be able to ski and play sports like I had in the past?
Yes, you have a case against the restaurant. The restaurant must maintain its property in a reasonably safe condition and failure to do so subjects them to liability for your damages, which may include (but is not limited to) pain and suffering, medical expenses and any permeant or temporary loss of function that you experience to your knee or ankle.
