Retail Store Accident
As a customer, you have a right to expect to be safe while you are shopping, whether you’re at the store for groceries, clothing, household items or anything else. However, a store’s failure to maintain a safe environment could cause serious injuries. Oversights by store management can lead to:
- Spills and loose merchandise on the floor
- Merchandise falling from shelves
- Cracks in the sidewalk or floor
- Loose carpet or rugs
- Electrocution or burns
- Elevator or escalator accidents
- Falls from loose handrails
Any of these can turn a quick shopping trip into a hospital stay, and the costs to you can go beyond the emergency room bills. You could have lost wages, and even lose, temporarily or permanently, the ability to do your job.
A commercial establishment is inviting the general public to walk through its doors. A retail store, therefore, has a responsibility to customers to make every effort within reason to maintain a safe environment. This includes making efforts to check for possible dangers, and at least warning customers of these dangers when they are found. If they fail to do this and you are injured as a result, that store has been negligent, and is liable for your injuries.
The store will usually be covered by a commercial general liability insurance policy, and the company providing that insurance is who you will be seeking recovery from. They may contact you with a settlement offer. Do not take it. They may say they owe you nothing. Do not believe them.
