In the food and service industry, there are many elements to consider in the event of a lawsuit involving the operation of a restaurant. Litigators and insurance professionals should utilize the expertise of a restaurant industry expert witness with a background that matches the specific details of your particular case.
Before a restaurant is even built, there are many considerations to be made regarding the construction, zoning laws, market research and positioning, strategic planning, and budgeting and profit forecasting. Franchises require additional planning before a restaurant can open, such as accounting and financial planning for franchise restaurants and other foodservice outlets, the implementation and design of franchise audit programs, and restaurant industry research.
Several types of lawsuits can be made against a restaurant business because of the financial and legal details involved with running the business. Cases made against a restaurant professional can include a dispute between the restaurant franchisee and franchisor, a disagreement between the property landlord and tenant, foodservice partnership dissolution, employee claims for wages, and franchise misrepresentation allegation claims. Other lawsuits may involve the customers, such as food poisoning, food safety, serving alcoholic beverages to minors, menu mislabeling, security, and slips, trips, and falls.
With so many factors to consider, it is important to have a qualified and well-experienced expert witness for your case.
