Department Store Accident

In a well respected department store, an escalator comes to a sudden stop. This can throw customers down steep steps of metal into a heaping mountain of bodies.

A myriad of customers are severely injured with head injuries, open wounds and broken bones.

The store considered it a fluke incident. However, escalator maintenance records dictated a different story. The store was aware the escalator was apt to break down suddenly, and posed serious danger to store customers.

The best attorneys who specialize in personal injuries can secure the need and uncover the truth for victims to receive entitled compensation for sustained injuries due to negligence of the department store.

For example, a man sustained personal injuries as he broke his arm by slipping and falling on water leaked from a fountain in a department store.

Although the store was aware of the defects of the water fountain, the customer was blamed for failing to recognize water on clear tile.

Injured by the negligence of the department store, the man contested the department store.

He was reimbursed for his medical bills, and reimbursed for income loss, as well as the suffering of arm surgery and rehabilitation.

Common place are injuries sustained in department stores because many stores have vast space.

Insufficient staffing occurs, so the premises and floors are not clear of dangers through regular maintenance and sweeping of floors.

Many state laws require department stores to ensure the store is free of dangers, and to conduct regular inspections to watch for dangers.

If an individual sustains injuries in an accident in a department store, which could’ve been avoided, that store is liable for expenses and harm suffered by a customer because of injury.

The most esteemed attorneys represent individuals who sustained injuries in stores because of defective equipment and subpar floor maintenance.

There are many incidences where a store won’t take the blame for a department store accident. They will say it’s not their fault.

You can hire a personal injury attorney to prove them wrong in court, and enable you to receive full compensation.

Attorneys with experience handles cases of store accident injuries caused by the following incidents: escalator and elevator accidents, wet floors, accidents in parking lots, merchandise on the floor, slip accidents on rugs and mats, merchandise falling from shelves over-stacked, and display and shelving maintained improperly.

Fortunately for you, personal injury attorneys are available for you to receive legal assistance.

Receiving any type of injury in an accident can force effects for years on your life. You should contact an attorney immediately in such a case.

When owners of a property neglect to live up to these duties, dangerous conditions such as poorly lit areas, or broken sidewalks can result in personal injury, slip-and-fall accidents, or wrongful death.

Laws of premises liability dictate that liable parties offer compensation for sustained injuries caused by negligence. However, cases of premises liability can be time-consuming and complex.
