In our recent blog post, we discussed how shopping can sometimes be hazardous to your health. That post probably made you think about how a regular trip to the store can end with you being injured or even killed. We know that you might be wondering if there is something that you can do if you are injured in an accident at a store.
One of the issues that can occur in a shopping center is falling merchandise. If you take a few moments to think about stores, they are likely going to have merchandise stored in overhead spaces, such as the very top of the shelving units. If this merchandise isn’t properly secured, it can fall on your head.
When you choose to seek compensation after an injury at a store, you have to take the time to find out exactly what happened. The issue here is that you might not feel up to having to do a bunch of investigative work. Instead, you might need to focus on your healing. We can take the lead on the investigation while you take your time to work through the medical treatment plan your doctor set for you.
Filing a claim for compensation might seem like you are trying to make too big of a deal out of the situation; however, a claim for compensation is usually an effective way to get the store to cover your medical bills and other damages you suffered because of the injury. You might even be able to seek compensation for lost wages.
You don’t have to let the store get away with unsafe conditions that led to your injury. Instead, we will help you take a stand.
