Retail Store Negligence Attorney

Accidents in Stores Can Cause Serious Injuries

Retail store accidents can range from a slip and fall on a wet floor, being struck by falling merchandise, being cut by broken glass or from any other type of accident occurring on the store premises. When someone is injured while in a grocery store, department store, furniture store, membership club warehouse store or other business, it may be possible to collect compensation by filing a premises liability claim against the store owner.

If you were injured while on a business property and you have reason to believe it was due to the negligence or carelessness of the store management or owner, you may have a case. Take action to protect your interests by contacting a personal injury attorney at our law offices today.

At Meyerkord & Meyerkord, we are a family firm, interested in helping your family. We can analyze a store accident and help you determine whether you have grounds to file a personal injury claim for damages. If you do, we can provide you with competent, experienced legal guidance and representation, giving you the full benefit of our 100 years of combined legal experience.

Proving Your Accident Claim

There are a large number of circumstances that can result in a store accident. Some possible examples include a forklift dropping stocks from a pallet, exposure to cleaning chemicals, electrocution caused by exposed electrical wiring, or falling on a freshly waxed or wet aisle floor.

If you have been hurt anywhere on the premises of a store, the first thing to do is to make a record of the incident as completely as possible. Take photos if you can and record any witness statements in addition to their names and contact information. Also, write down the sequence of events and the details of what occurred. This information can be invaluable in proving your accident claim, making it easier to secure a fair insurance settlement or jury verdict.
