  • Slipped, Fell and Hurt Yourself in A Store? How To Claim Compensation

    September 3, 2018

    Slip and fall accidents can happen at any time, to anyone and anywhere. One of the common places where such disasters happen is in a mall or store. They can happen while you’re entering or exiting or you’re within the premises, using the rest-room located inside etc. Not many people are aware that stores and retail spaces that welcome and invite customers into their premises also have a duty to ensure their safety. A dangerous or hazardous condition that exists in the store, that the owner was aware or should have been aware of, can cause serious injuries. The result can be severe physical, financial and emotional trauma to not just the injured victim but often to the entire family.

    If you or a dear one suffers such injuries, contact an experienced slip and fall injury lawyer with expertise in dealing with similar cases. You may be entitled to compensation.

    However there are several complex medical, legal and insurance issues involved. The term “premises” can cover land-ownership, business premises, rental or leased properties etc. and the liability may be different in each case. There may be multiple agencies involved.

    Other agencies in charge of maintenance, cleaning, repairs etc can also be held liable in such cases. Lack of warning signs, poor lighting, damaged flooring, wet/slippery freshly-cleaned floors, loose carpeting, cluttered aisles, debris and waste etc can also cause accidents. In recent years, large store chains across many countries have faced liability actions for failing to ensure the safety of all legitimate visitors to their premises.
