Fallen Clothes, Unbalanced Displays And Other Issues Can Pose A Danger
Here are a few examples of situations that may cause slips, trips and falls in retail stores:
- Merchandise is improperly stacked or displayed, creating unseen obstacles in walkways.
- Aisles and walkways are not wide enough, causing items to fall off shelves when people pass by and leaving a tripping hazard for others.
- Clothes are hung improperly off the racks, making it possible for people to step on them and potentially slip on them.
- Spilled liquid or debris on the floors is not promptly cleaned up, leading to slip-and-fall accidents.
Our lawyers know how to handle these and many other types of premises liability cases. We will start by putting the store on notice in order to preserve video tapes and other types of evidence. We will also engage the help of investigators to thoroughly review the scene of the accident. Photos you take on your own can also be helpful. If you take pictures of your injuries and the accident scene, we may be able to use them to support your case.
