Personal Injury and Retailer Safety
In China, there were recently several accidents involving moving escalators where people were severely injured or killed. Injuries or slip and fall accidents can occur in any retailer, grocery store, or public walkway. If you or a loved one was injured and believe a store was negligent and your injury could have been prevented, call the personal injury lawyers at McEnery Price Messey & Sullivan right away to begin an investigation.
Factors that could contribute to your personal injury case include:
- Poor lighting. If you fell or were injured and the lighting was poor, a store could be held liable for your injuries. If you are able, photograph the lighting.
- Unsafe walking conditions. Cluttered walkways, wet/slippery floors, or uneven walkways can be causes for permanent injury.
- Broken equipment. Loose railings, stairs, handles and more can cause you to lose your footing and become injured.
If you or a loved one were injured in a store or a public walkway and believe your injury could have been prevented, contact our office immediately. If your case involved local or state government, your notice needs to be filed with the town within a very short time after the accident, 90 days in some cases.
