If a person suffers an injury on store property in which he or she is injured due to negligence on the part of a store owner or other related party, he or she may have cause to file a premises liability claim.
Many individuals often think a day of shopping is a time for enjoyment. However, there are instances in which your day out could take a turn for the worst.
Florida residents may be interested in such a case currently taking place in another area. A recent report stated that a woman was shopping at a retail store when a sign fell and hit her wrist. It was unclear where the sign was positioned at the time of the incident or what may have caused it to fall. Nonetheless, the woman suffered injuries as a result.
The woman recently filed a claim against two companies associated with the retail store. She believes that efforts were not made to ensure that the dangerous area was safe, and she was not informed of potential hazards. She reportedly suffered mental and physical injuries as a result of the incident, and she is seeking compensation for those and other damages.
When incidents such as this one occur and leave unsuspecting individuals with serious injuries, they may not know where to turn. However, as this case shows, certain parties could be held liable for those injuries under certain circumstances. Therefore, Florida residents who have been injured due to unsafe property may have cause to file premises liability claims. Experienced attorneys could help interested individuals review their cases and determine whether this route could be viable.
