Costco Gas Station Trip And Fall Injury Lawyer

Costco Gas Station Trip And Fall Injury Lawyer sue liability compensation incident

Many consumers are happy to pay the cost of a Costco membership to take advantage of the more reasonable pricing on many grocery and household items. They appreciate that buying in bulk is cheaper, and they spend less time shopping with a nice stash of these large-quantity items at home. In addition, the discounted price of fuel at Costco gas stations is always a welcome way to save a little money.

Part of the appeal of the Costco gas stations is the massive number of pumps and the ability to pull up and fuel your car, truck, or SUV regardless of the side of the fuel door. Costco provides exceptionally long hoses on all pumps that can reach across the most oversized vehicles. But what is great at saving you a few minutes when fueling can also result in life-threatening or life-altering injuries. So, customers need to be very careful when stopping at a Costco gas station.

If you or a loved one recently suffered a trip and fall injury at a Costco gas station, please get in touch with DTLA Law Group immediately. Our staff can be reached 24/7 to help you better understand your rights as the victim of a trip and fall injury accident and how we can help you hold Costco accountable for the harm and losses you suffered due to your injuries. But please call our office today to ensure you have time to evaluate your options and decide if you wish to pursue a Costco gas station trip and fall injury lawsuit before the time limit to file your claim with the court expires.

Common Trip And Fall Safety Hazards At Costco Gas Station

If you are a member of Costco, you are sure to know that the Costco gas station is typically very busy. Long lines of cars are waiting to fuel up at the discounted price. However, there are also several potential trip and fall hazards that you need to be aware of to avoid a severe injury. Unfortunately, even with the gas station attendants present, not all of these issues are quickly eliminated or handled in a way that will ensure your safety or the safety of other patrons, so be sure to watch for:

  • Trash or litter that has fallen to the ground near the gas pumps or in the walkways that could cause you to trip and fall
  • Beware of the extra-long gas pump hoses that have been installed to allow guests to reach either side of their vehicle for faster fueling – while the longer hose might be helpful, it can also be a trip and fall hazard when you walk to the pump to enter your payment information, and the hose is cluttering the walking space
  • Due to the longer hoses, it is more common for gas to leak onto the ground when a customer is returning the hose from the opposite side of their car to the pump after using it – so watch for slippery areas on the concrete as you move toward the gas pumps and know that litter or leaves could be stuck to the moist surface and be very hazardous if you step on them

If you suffer a trip and fall injury at a Costco gas station, be sure to get in touch with DTLA Law Group at your earliest convenience to discuss the facts of your case with a skilled trip and fall injury lawyer. They will evaluate the legal merit of your claim and let you know if you have grounds for a Costco gas station trip and fall injury lawsuit.

How Premises Liability Will Impact Your Ability To Sue Costco For A Trip And Fall Injury

Premises liability laws are in place to ensure that property owners maintain their space, such as a store, parking lot, or gas station, in a safe and hazard-free manner. In the case of a Costco gas station, several criteria must be met to allow a trip and fall injury victim to seek legal action, implying that the store and staff were negligent in their duty to keep the space safe and free from hazards, such as:

  • It must be established that there was a safety issue present at the Costco gas station, such as the very long gas pump hose that was draped on the ground, creating a tripping hazard
  • The facility or staff must have known about the issue or should have known of the issue
  • The staff failed to address or correct the issue that posed a safety threat
  • The hazard the staff failed to remove or resolve was directly responsible for your trip and fall injuries
  • Due to your trip and fall at the Costco gas station, you suffered injuries that resulted in a loss or expenses

It is sure to appear intimidating to imagine trying to prove all of these issues existed at the Costco gas station when you tripped and fell. You can certainly understand that Costco will have a group of legal experts in court to try to discredit you and any information you might present to prove your case. However, when working with the expert trip and fall injury lawyers at DTLA Law Group, you have nothing to worry about. Our staff brings decades of combined expertise to each case, and we are never intimidated by the legal team that appears when a huge company needs to avoid taking responsibility for its mistakes. We will handle every aspect of your Costco gas station trip and fall injury lawsuit so that you can focus on healing and fully recovering from your injuries.

How Much Is The Average Costco Gas Station Trip And Fall Injury Lawsuit?

As you work with the legal experts, they will help you compile all the expenses and losses you incurred because of your trip and fall injury incident at the Costco gas station. Our goal is always to ensure that our valued clients get the most robust compensation possible to allow them to recover without the stress caused by mounting medical expenses or other financial issues created by injuries due to someone else’s negligence. The items that are commonly included in a trip and fall injury lawsuit compensation are:

  • The cost of all medical care for the injuries suffered at the Costco gas station, including essential medical equipment, medication, and any therapy or emotional care needed to overcome the trauma and stress caused by the injuries sustained
  • Your lost wages if the injuries suffered prevent you from doing your normal job or for work hours missed due to medical appointments
  • Pain and suffering can also be included in some cases
  • The replacement cost of any personal property that was damaged or destroyed in the trip and fall injury incident
  • All legal fees related to your Costco gas station trip and fall injury lawsuit

These actual expenses and damages will be combined to determine the total amount sought in your lawsuit. In many cases, the average value of a Costco gas station trip and fall incident will be between $50,000 and $2,000,000. However, the specific injuries and losses you suffer will significantly impact the actual value of your lawsuit. Please contact DTLA Law Group to request a free consultation with a seasoned slip and fall injury lawyer to discuss the facts of your case and receive a more case-specific estimated value for your Costco gas station trip and fall injury lawsuit.

How Long Do I Have To File A Trip And Fall Lawsuit?

The Statute of Limitations for a trip and fall injury lawsuit is two years from the date of the incident. If your case is not prepared and filed with the court within 24 months of your trip and fall injuries, you will lose the right to seek justice and compensation from Costco for the losses and damages caused by that incident. It is also critical to know that there are very few exceptions to the time limit defined by the Statute of Limitations. So, please get in touch with a DTLA Law Group trip and fall injury lawyer today to learn more about the time limit to file your claim and the potential time needed to resolve your lawsuit.

How Long Does It Take To Complete A Costco Gas Station Trip And Fall Injury Lawsuit?

The facts and details of your case will directly impact the time needed to complete it. However, a broad time estimate to consider is six months to two years. In the majority of the cases handled by DTLA Law Group, personal injury cases are resolved within a year of the lawsuit being filed, and most of them are concluded by Costco providing a settlement rather than taking the case to court.
