Hardware StoreWhile most customers enjoy shopping at large home improvement retail chains, regretfully falls and other accidents occasionally occur. Victims unfortunate enough to be involved in accidents at these stores can suffer severe injuries. Each year, the companies face numerous lawsuits from patrons who have been injured due to unsafe conditions caused by negligent employees or management.

Like other retailers, home improvement retail chains have a legal obligation to avoid causing harm to shoppers. This requires the retailer to make all reasonable efforts to ensure that patrons remain safe from any potentially dangerous conditions, such as slippery floors and improperly stacked merchandise. No victim should be forced to single-handedly bear the consequences of his or her injuries. If a home improvement retail chain failed to remedy a hazardous situation that they should have known about and it caused you to suffer an injury, you may be able to pursue a premises liability lawsuit against the store.

The Dangers of Home Improvement Retail Chains

Lift truckHome improvement retail chains supply everything from appliances and kitchenware to construction products and hardware. Regretfully, the massive warehouse-style stores can present numerous hazards to unsuspecting customers. Some of the products may stick out or be left on the ground by careless employees when they are stocking the shelves. Other customers may carelessly move items to reach others. It is way too easy to trip on bulky items that are blocking the aisles, especially when an object is hidden around a corner. Furthermore, some merchandise is unwieldy or stacked sky-high on shelves. This can make it difficult for shoppers to safely move items from shelves to their carts. While stacking items overhead may save space, it places shoppers in the path of falling objects.

Besides all of the products cluttering the aisles and the unsafe shelves, the polished concrete flooring itself may be slick and cause a slip and fall. Paint, grease, oil, and other liquid spills are frequent occurrences. Home improvement retail chain managers are supposed to routinely check their stores and correct any dangerous conditions without delay. When a shopper fails to report a spill, leak, or other unsafe condition and employees neglect to inspect; severe mishaps can happen. Sometimes, irresponsible employees forget to place caution signs to warn customers about wet surfaces. There are other regular risks present throughout home improvement retail chain stores and parking lots. Customers can fall on uneven sections of flooring, loose carpeting, recently waxed floors, cracks in the sidewalks, and icy parking lots.



Compensation for Your Home Improvement Retail Chain Accident

Regardless of the reason that you suffered injuries at a home improvement retail chain, you should contact the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. Our highly experienced attorneys will do everything in their power to ensure that you receive the compensation that you deserve. Common types of injuries sustained at home improvement retail chains are strains and sprains, broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, soft-tissue damage, and even death. You may be entitled to seek monetary compensation for all injuries caused by the retailer’s failure to take reasonable measures to prevent your harm. Damages were designed to restore victims to the same position that they were in before the accident. Thus, compensation is calculated based on the actual injuries suffered and includes both economic and non-economic damages. Generally, the more severe your injuries are, the higher number of damages you will collect. Victims suffering from injuries can pursue recovery for the following:

  1. Past, present, and future medical costs caused by your accident;
  2. Physical therapy and any long-term care expenses;
  3. All lost income and other benefits from missing work;
  4. Reduced potential earning capacity;
  5. Pain and suffering caused by your injuries, as well as treatment and recovery;
  6. Any life-long disabilities sustained;
  7. Loss of enjoyment in life and consortium; and
  8. Any other unforeseen damages related to your mishap.
