Holding Discount Retail Stores Responsible for Your Injuries

Every day, accidents occur at discount retail stores throughout the country. If you, or a member of your family, were injured at a discount retail store, the corporation may be liable for all of the injuries that you suffered. Every store has a legal duty to its customers to keep them out of harm’s way. The corporation can be held financially responsiblefor unsafe conditions that cause injury due to taking actions or failing to adopt necessary safety measures. In any accident claim, such as a slip and fall, the victim must be able to show that the defendant was liable for injuries suffered by proving that the incident was caused by an unsafe condition that the store should have known about. After your accident, our seasoned attorneys strongly recommend documenting your damages. The following actions can significantly help strengthen your case:

  1. Request to Speak with the Store Manager: In case you were seriously harmed and not capable of moving, you should ask someone nearby to find the manager.
  2. Ask the Manager to Complete an Incident Report: You should have the manager list the cause of your accident, such as a slippery floor or fallen shelf. Request a copy of the finalized report.
  3. Seek Medical Care: By asking the manager to call 911, emergency medical personnel can evaluate the severity of your injuries. Even if your injuries appear to be minor, you should still get checked out by a doctor.
  4. Collect Information: The contact details of potential witnesses can be very useful. Taking pictures or videos of the condition that caused your mishap and your injuries can also help support your case.
