Lawyers for Retail Store Assaults and Attacks
Despite regulations designed to protect customers, retail store owners sometimes fail to perform their due diligence. When retail store owners and managers do not make necessary repairs or warn customers about dangerous conditions on their property, serious accidents can occur. Victims have a right to hold the negligent property owner liable to cover the costs of the damages.
Common Causes of Injuries Caused by Negligent Security in Retail Establishments
Accidents can occur at nearly any retail location, from grocery stores to clothing stores. Some of the most common causes of injuries at retail establishments include the following:
- Attacks or Assaults Due to Poor Security
- Sharp shelving
- Poor lighting
- Spilled liquid
- Falling merchandise
- Poor lighting
- Poorly maintained floors or sidewalks
- Broken handrails
- Dangerous staircases
- Debris in the store aisle
What to Do if You Have Been Injured in a Retail Establishment
If you have been injured because of unsafe conditions in a retail establishment, it is important to know what steps you should take. Assess the situation quickly. If you can do so safely, you should try to use your phone to take photos of the dangerous condition that caused the accident. Make sure that you obtain medical treatment for your injuries. Follow your doctor’s recommendations and keep all of your medical records.
Doing so will help you prove that the accident resulted in your injuries and the severity of your injuries. Next, you should speak to an experienced attorney. Attorney James Rice can help you understand your legal rights and develop a strategy for obtaining the compensation you deserve. He will negotiate aggressively with the insurance company and defendant, pursuing the most compensation possible.
Mr. Rice, treated me and my case as if he was dealing with a “colleague” from the moment we met until the end of my case. I’m not a lawyer, nor in anyway, connected professionally to the law field. By “Colleague” I mean “Man, Husband, and Father” with all the responsibilities which correspond to the profession. He told me exactly what to expect with my case. His strategy and timeline to meet those expectations and what he would require of me to bring it all together in my best interest. Straight shooter, who got me back to the profession I love most in this world! Great lawyer who I’m proud to recommend to anyone needing his services.
