A Slip And Fall Lawyer Can File A Lawsuit To Recover Damages
Call a slip and fall lawyer when you have been injured in a fall at the grocery store. In many cases, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against the business owner to recover damages. In addition, if you lost time off work due to your injuries, you may be able to recover lost earnings. If you are permanently disabled, you may also receive compensation for future lost earnings and medical expenses.
Slip and fall accidents occur every day in grocery stores. Whether it’s a major chain supermarket or a local neighborhood grocery, the property owner or occupier has a duty to keep the property in a reasonably safe condition, and when someone slips and falls, in certain circumstances, the store owner can be held liable. If you have been injured in a fall at the supermarket, under Missouri’s laws, you have a right to seek full compensation for your losses.
The most common causes of injuries in a grocery store are:
- Missing or bunched up floor mats;
- Wet, slippery floors from spills, leaks, or mopping;
- Faulty entry and exit doors;
- Items falling from shelves;
- Faulty shopping carts;
- Aisle obstructions (boxes, display units, food); and
- Cracked or uneven floors or outside pavement.
Elderly people, in particular, are vulnerable to falling on slick floors which often result in a fractured hip. Poorly maintained grocery carts can cause cuts and scratches. Small children falling out of unstable carts can result in serious injury. Tripping on uneven concrete floors or broken outside pavement is not uncommon. These types of accidents can cause serious injuries, in extreme cases even death. In fact, slip and fall accidents cause 15% of all accidental deaths, second only to car accidents.
There are numerous advantages to having an experienced personal injury lawyer. They have experience going up against giant insurance companies, and won’t back down until seeking the fair and just financial compensation for your injuries and other losses. Further, they will organize the evidence, prepare a settlement demand letter, handle all correspondence, and work diligently to obtain the best settlement for you. Whether you decide to file a claim against the store’s insurance company or have a slip and fall lawyer file a lawsuit in court, keep in mind there is a statute of limitations deadline for filing. In Missouri, it is the same as the one that applies to most personal injury cases. [RSMo §516.0120]
