Tripped At A Department Store

Slipped and Fell at a Department Store | Lawyer

Whether it was a wet floor, a ripped carpet or a dimly lit staircase, slips, trips and falls can happen anywhere. However, accidents like these are common in department stores.

In most cases, store employees do a good job of warning their customers about any hazards that could lead to a slip, trip or fall. We’ve all seen the ‘slippery floor’ and ‘caution’ signs, but sometimes this simple warning is neglected, and it can put customers in real danger.

Here are some of the most common ways slips, trips and falls can happen:

  • Slipped on a wet floor
  • Tripped on a bunched carpet
  • Escalator malfunction
  • Tripped over items
  • Slipped on slush
  • Fell down stairs
  • Dimly lit areas
  • Slipped on icy entrance
  • Tripped on a rug
  • Fell on escalator

If any of these scenarios caused you or a family member to get injured, call us! We’ll put our best slip and fall lawyers on your case, so you can be confident you’re going to get fair compensation.
