Tripped and Fell Over a Box in a Store Injury Lawyers

If you were injured in a trip and fall accident in a store, you could have the right to file a lawsuit. For more information about the legal options available to you, contact the experts here at the Downtown L.A. Law Group today. Our personal injury lawyers have decades of experience handling personal injury claims, like trip and falls. Our team is not afraid to take on any property owner to fight for the rights of our clients and get them the best recovery possible.

Can I sue if I tripped and fell over a box in a store?

Yes, you sue. You can file a civil lawsuit against the owners of the store if you have tripped and fallen over a box that was negligently left on the floor of the store. This is because property owners, managers, and employees have the responsibility to keep the store floors clean and free of any debris, trash, merchandise, boxes, etc. that might represent a hazard to customers in the store. Of course, if you trip and fall due to something that was recklessly left on the floor, you would not be to blame. Rather, the property owner would be responsible.

Some of the different stores/establishments where trip and fall accidents could happen include the following:

  • Bakeries
  • Department stores
  • Farm supply stores
  • Grocery stores
  • Mail order stores
  • Merchandise “big box” stores
  • Office supply stores
  • Retail stores
  • Supermarkets
  • Warehouse stores

No matter the type of store, there should never be any boxes or merchandise left on the floor. Whether employees are stocking shelves, working on displays, etc., all boxes and other packaging must be cleaned up properly to avoid any risk to customers. When store owners, managers, and employees fail to keep the floors on their store clear of hazards, then they could be held accountable for any harm resulting from a trip and fall accident.

What are My Rights if I Tripped and Fell at a Store? Do I Have a Case?

Can you sue? Yes – if you were injured at a store after tripping and falling due to a box that was left on the floor, you could have the right to file a lawsuit. Your right to sue is based on premise liability, which states that property owners have a duty of care to all guests on their premises. They have a duty to keep their entire premises clear of any hazards (like boxes left on the floor) that could lead to incidents (like trip and falls). When property owners fail to identify and address hazards throughout their premises and directly contribute to an incident, they can be liable for all resulting harm.

In other words, store property owners can be liable for any injuries resulting from a trip and fall accident on their premises. Therefore, if you tripped and fell on a box at a store, you could certainly have a case. We recommend that you seek legal assistance as soon as possible to confirm whether you have a case and start the legal process.

The Possible Value of a Box Trip and Fall Claim

What is the average value of a trip and fall claim? How much can my case be worth if I tripped and fell on a box in a store? These are very common questions. Although these are important questions, they are not questions that we can answer accurately without knowing every detail about your case. Ultimately, the value of your case will be based on type of harm that you suffered. For instance, a trip and fall claim involving in a traumatic brain injury will typically be valued much higher than a claim involving a broken leg. For serious injuries, case values can range significantly – from $100,000 to $1 million or more, for instance. If your injuries are minor to moderate, like sprains and broken bones, then your case value is likely to be under the $100,000 mark.

In addition to the type and severity of the injuries suffered, additional details that affect case value include the wages that were lost as a direct result of the incident, all medical expenses, mental and emotional distress caused by the injury, etc. For more information about the possible value of your trip and fall claim, we recommend that you contact us today. One of our experts will be able to evaluate your situation and help you better understand what your case could be worth.
