Retail Store Safety

By McCoy & McCoy  Apr. 15, 2011 4:35p

It is the responsibility of retail stores to ensure they provide a safe shopping environment for their customers. In the event a visitor sustains an injury on the retail store’s property, then the retail store can be held legally liable for any damages that were incurred as a result of the accident.

People, especially the elderly are susceptible to slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall accidents can happen when a retail store either mops a floor yet neglects to leave a “caution” sign, thus causing a customer to slip and fall as a result, or when there has been a spill such as shampoo, yet management failed to clean up the mess in a timely manner. Slip and fall injuries can have devastating effects, especially on elderly shoppers. A slip and fall can fracture a hip, thus leading to risky and invasive hip surgery.

There are other ways to become injured in a retail store, large, heavy objects can fall on customers, or poorly stacked merchandise can also fall on unsuspecting customers. Truly, the possibilities are endless, and when people get injured at retail establishments, they have the legal right to pursue a premises liability law suit against the retail store and its owners. If you have been injured or if a loved one has suffered a wrongful death at a retail store, it would be in your best interests to speak to a qualified Hartford personal injury attorney for more details about your unique case.
