The neighborhood bar is great for hanging out with friends and relaxing after a long week. There are bars, taverns, and lounges almost anywhere in Florida, such as the beach, near tourist attractions, or in neighborhood strip malls.

Guests can get hurt when visiting a Florida bar or restaurant despite their relaxed atmosphere. Patrons could slip on a wet floor, fall in the parking lot, or get burned from a hot plate. They might even fall as they walk through the bar or restaurant if management doesn’t leave enough room between the tables and chairs. An overserved guest could cause significant injury to patrons on the property or other people if they drive home.

Most people hurt at a Florida bar, restaurant, or lounge seek immediate medical care when severe injuries occur. However, injured guests may not know they have rights when the accident results from the negligent actions of the bar owners, managers, or employees. Or guests don’t bother to find out their legal rights in a Florida bar crash because they think they are to blame.

Common Injuries at a Florida Bar

Florida is a popular vacation spot that is known for its nightlife. You can enjoy the views of the deco-inspired M. Bird rooftop bar in Tampa. Relax by the beach at Fort Lauderdale’s iconic Elbo Room or hang out at Old Tom’s Sports Bar or Grails in Wynwood to watch the big game.

Owners and managers have a duty to keep bars, lounges, and restaurants safe for guests. But when they don’t ensure the safety of their property, people can be seriously injured. Frequent accidents at Florida bars include:

  • Slips and falls on wet floors.
  • Falls in parking lots with potholes or broken sidewalks.
  • Trips over furniture, like tables and chairs, placed too close together.
  • Stairs without proper no-slip surfaces
  • Broken or loose handrails and railings around stairs or bars with upper levels
  • Burns from scalding liquids or plates.
  • Lousy lighting may cause people to fall when they cannot see.

Patrons could be seriously injured in alcohol-related accidents. An overserved customer that gets behind the wheel could severely hurt people walking in the parking lot or driving down the street. Bars can also attract criminal activity. Parking lots and garages which are dark and lack security could place guests in danger.
