Last week, we discussed how important it is for retailers to ensure they keep their shoppers safe during the busy holiday shopping season. While it is true that most retailers will do a lot to keep shoppers safe, there is still a chance that a shopper will be injured while trying to get holiday gifts and other necessities. When that happens, the injured shopper might have to seek medical care. In severe cases, time off of work might be necessary as the shopper heals from those injuries.
We know that medical bills coming in and time missed from work can mean financial devastation for some Florida residents. If you have been injured in a shopping accident, you don't have to sit down and just deal with the long-term financial difficulties. Instead, you can stand up and take action to hold the retailer responsible for your injuries. You can file a civil claim for compensation for your injuries.
There are several things that can lead to shopping accidents. Florida retailers have to be aware of these things and take action to prevent them. When a shopper is hurt because of slippery floors, falling merchandise or lack of adequate security, the shopper can seek compensation.
Proving liability for premises liability claims, which is what many shopping injuries will be considered, can be difficult. We can investigate your case to help you determine the best way to proceed with your claims. You don't have to try to fight the retailer alone. We will stand by your side to help you as you seek the compensation you deserve.
