The Legal Consequences of Falling Inside a Store

As an expert in personal injury law, I have seen numerous cases of people getting seriously injured due to negligence in retail stores.

Slip and fall

accidents are the most common causes of retail negligence, but there are other factors at play as well. According to OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), “9 out of 10 customer accidents are due to some type of negligence in a retail store.” This means that when a customer gets injured in a store, the store is responsible for covering the cost of damages. However, when a store fails to meet this obligation, perhaps because of poorly maintained facilities or equipment, or because of staff misconduct, they are considered to have neglected their duty of care.

In such cases, the store is held accountable for the resulting damages and the victim may be entitled to fair compensation for their injuries. This is where a personal injury attorney can help you determine your legal rights and file a case.
