Your Right to Sue
Can I sue if I fell in a shoe store? Can I sue if I sustained injuries in a shoe store or shoe department at a retail store? If you trip and fall over shoes left on the store sales area, you could be eligible to file a personal injury claim against the store owner. Your right to sue will be based on the concept of premise liability. Based on premise liability, property owners – which includes store owners – have a duty of care towards the guests that enter their premises. This means that they must routinely inspect their premises to be able to identify and address any hazards present. If they fail to ensure that their premises are free of hazards or dangerous conditions (like shoes everywhere, strewn all over the salesfloor), they can directly lead to incidents that could harm unsuspecting shoppers.
If you or a member of your family tripped and fell at a shoe store or shoe department because there were shoes everywhere, you could sue for the harm that you suffered. For more information on your right to sue if you trip on shoes on the floor, do not hesitate to contact the experts at our firm immediately.
You Could Be Compensated
If there is no one to pick up shoes on the floor and no one to make sure that all shoes are placed back on shelves, store guests can trip and fall and suffer injuries; these store guests can file a lawsuit and potentially recover compensation if they are injured. Could you be compensated? What could you be eligible to receive? Based on the details surrounding your shoe store trip and fall claim, you could be eligible to recover compensation for at least some of the following:
- Medical costs
- Lost earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of consortium
- Punitive damages
- Legal expenses
If you are interested in learning more about the type and amount of compensation that you could be eligible to receive if your lawsuit against the shoe store, shoe outlet store, or retail store is successful, do not hesitate to contact the experts at our firm immediately. Our trip and fall lawyers are ready to evaluate your lawsuit and fight for your right to recover the highest amount of compensation available.
