Dec 24 2011 my daughter slipped and fell at mcdonalds due to ice. Her nose was pouring blood and it knocked 4 of her teeth loose. She had black eyes and a cut under her nose that was visible. She was seen at the hospital and came back fine. My daughter is now terrified of stepping foot in a play place and crys everytime we go near there. What are my options?
Based on the facts you presented, it sounds like you have a case, though there are additional factors to consider. You need to hire an attorney to handle this for you.

Whenever anyone sustains a slip and fall injury, they should retain a personal injury lawyer to investigate whether there was negligence. For the best info on slip and fall injuries, you may visit my website. Make sure you find a lawyer with a low contingency fee, less than 30%, so you are left with the lion's share of the settlement, not your lawyer. Good luck to you.

So sorry to hear about your daughter. If you can prove that the ice was there for a sufficient period of time (so that the employees knew, or should have known, that there was ice on the floor and failed to do anything about it), then you will likely be able to bring a claim against McDonalds.
You need to speak to a personal-injury attorney to discuss in more detail. I am available at 800.379.TEAM (8326).
If you already have an attorney - good luck to you. I hope your daughter recovers quickly and fully.
