Retail Store Slip, Trip, & Fall Accident Lawyers
Property owners of retail businesses have a duty to maintain a reasonably safe premises for customers and employees. In the event that they are negligent in the maintenance of their property, property owners and leasers may be found liable for injuries due to slip and fall accidents on their property. Property owners must adhere to these regulations both inside their store and in their parking lots. When an individual legally enters their store or parking lot, their well-being and safety become the responsibility of the property owner.

How Much Is My Accident Worth?
Compensation for injured victims can vary significantly depending on the severity of an individual’s injuries and the subsequent effects that their injuries will have on their current and future earnings. If an individual cannot return to their prior job after a slip and fall accident, they likely deserve a substantial compensation for lost future wages. Injuries such as severe head trauma and spinal cord damage can permanently disable victims. Disabling injuries such as paralysis and lack of cognitive functioning can generate expensive future medical bills. It is not uncommon for injuries to develop a few weeks after the accident.
Individuals can lose potential compensation if they choose to speak to a negligent store owner directly. We recommend that in the event of a slip, trip, and fall accident, victims contact a legal professional before answering any questions. If a retail store manager, owner, or employee does not document the accident, it is important that the victim does so. Important details to include are what led to the accident, was the accident avoidable, and who witnessed the accident. If the store does document the incident, we encourage victims to be specific and concise in their statements.
