Slip and fall accidents don’t discriminate. You can fall victim to an accident in any location if hazardous conditions arise, and if you aren’t careful, the damage has the potential to change your life forever. Even minor accidents can result in major damage, leaving the victim to pick up the pieces of their accident on their own, which is why it’s recommended to seek medical attention after a slip and fall, regardless of the severity. However, with medical costs rising exponentially across the nation, this is becoming a costly task to undertake—one that will leave you with a mountain of expenses that only compounds the physical pain you’re experiencing.
Some slip and fall accidents are completely random, with the victimized party making a genuine mistake that leads to their injury. Other cases aren’t so random, and someone’s negligence leads to the accident itself.
Property owners, landlords, and anyone with a legal duty to care about a location must act responsibly to ensure that their premises are entirely safe for anyone who traverse them. Negligence, or a failure to maintain their premises, can create hazardous areas on their property, such as uneven walkways, broken staircases, and improperly lit areas. Even major retailers, like Walmart, Home Depot, and Target, have negligently exposed their customers to a risk of injury, and the situation is even more unfortunate if the at-fault party could have prevented the accident with some proactive action.
If you find yourself injured by the negligent hand of a major retailer, your next call should be to a trusted attorney.
