Jimmy John’s Accidents
With over 3,000 locations, Jimmy John’s is one of the most popular sandwich shops in the United States.

In one recent case, our client visited a Jimmy John’s store and slipped on water that had pooled under the soda machine. Jimmy John’s had been aware of a leaking water line near the machine but had failed to properly repair the leak or put cones around the area where water was building up. As a result, our client was unable to see the buildup of water and slipped and fell at the Jimmy John’s, causing a serious injury to the client’s knee. Our Jimmy John’s accident lawyers filed a lawsuit against Jimmy John’s and ultimately resolved the claim for a six-figure settlement.
As another example, our Jimmy John’s accident lawyers learned about a pedestrian out walking his dog who was struck and killed by a careless Jimmy John’s driver. In that case, the family of the victim sued Jimmy Johns for wrongful death, claiming that it is inevitable that when drivers are required to be “freaky fast,” drivers would be pressured to drive recklessly and innocent people would get hurt.
