Stores and businesses are required by law to keep their premises safe for customers, employees, and visitors. When the owners of the premises are negligent, it can become a dangerous place for anyone to be in. Often in large establishments, such as toy stores, grocery stores, and super stores, a manager may not pay proper attention to the cleanliness of the aisles. Or, sometimes, instead of fixing a broken shelf or closing an aisle, they ignore the problem, which can lead to accidents. This type of negligence is unacceptable, especially when it causes someone to become injured. Our team at Amaro Law Firm is dedicated to recovering damages for our clients who have been injured due to the negligence of another.
These accidents are especially common during busy shopping days, when stores have not hired enough employees to ensure that the property is safe throughout the day. If you or someone you love has suffered an injury due to fallen merchandise, please contact a Houston personal injury attorney at our firm to find out more about how we can protect your rights.
Types of Injuries
Fallen merchandise, that is, goods that should be on the shelves of the aisle but instead block the walkway, is especially dangerous for the elderly and disabled, although anyone can be hurt by it. While some people may trip and fall and have no injuries at all, this type of accident can seriously injure others. Broken bones, brain injuries, and even wrongful death can occur.
Injuries such as these can have lasting effects and complications. In some cases, the victim of the accident is unable to work for years, or even at all if he or she becomes permanently disabled. The inability to work can have repercussions for the entire family, especially if the victim was the primary earner.
