Slip and Fall
Both land and store owners owe certain duties to visitors to their property, including warning of non-obvious dangers and repairing or correcting dangerous conditions that can often cause slips, trips and falls. This includes protecting customers from the risks of falling merchandise and inclement weather conditions.
When someone is injured as a result of a property owner's negligence, that person may be able to recover damages for their injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages either through direct negotiation with the property owner's insurance company or in a lawsuit.
Slip and fall accidents are some of the most common accidents today affecting retailers of all kinds. In many slip and fall cases, an injured person must prove that the owner either created the unsafe or dangerous condition, failed to maintain the property in a reasonably safe manner or else knew about the danger yet failed to alert customers and the public about the risks. Because of this, retailers and their insurance companies' claims adjustors may seem willing to work with you but they are not out to serve your best interests.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a slip and fall accident or by falling merchandise and you believe the owner of the property may have been negligent, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
