Fort Lauderdale Retail Store Accident Attorney
Anthony Quackenbush is a Fort Lauderdale Retail Store Accident Lawyer who helps people after they’ve sustained serious injuries. A retail store is one that sells consumer goods or services to its customers. Some of the biggest retailers in the United States are Wal-mart, Costco, Kroger, Walgreens, CVS, The Home Depot, Target, Lowe’s, Albertsons, Apple, Best Buy, Dollar General, Dollar Tree, Kohl’s, Verizon, Ace Hardware, 7-Eleven, AT&T Wireless, Ross, BJ’s, Gap, Bed Bath & Beyond, Autozone, Staples, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Sherwin-Williams, Toys “R” Us, Office Depot, Ikea, PetSmart, Foot Locker, GameStop, Burlington Coat Factory, Big Lots, and Advance Auto Parts.
All types of accidents may occur in retail stores. These may include trip and fall and slip & fall accidents. Because merchandise is being sold in retail stores at a high rate, things may end up on the floor. When this occurs and you trip & fall as a result, you may be able to pursue a personal injury case.
If you trip over an object lying on the ground or floor of a retail store, you will need to prove “notice” on the part of the store in order to pursue a successful case. That is, you will need to prove either that the store had “actual notice” of the object (i.e., the employees of the store either put the object on the ground/floor themselves or knew about it and failed to remove it) or “constructive notice” (i.e., the object was on the ground/floor long enough that the store should have been aware of it and should have removed it). In order to prove that the object had been on the ground for long enough that the store should have been aware of it, you can use circumstantial evidence. For example, if the object was dirty, then that would be evidence that it had been there for some time.

If you slip and fall on a liquid substance (water, soda, juice, etc.) on the ground/floor in a retail store, then you also will need to prove either that the store had actual or constructive notice of the liquid substance.
Oftentimes, things can fall in a retail store and injure you. This can include unsecured merchandise or walls/ceilings in the store. Merchandise, for example, may fall if it isn’t properly secured or strapped down on the shelves off the store. Again, if you’ve been injured due to falling objects, you will need to prove that the store had either actual or constructive notice of the dangerous condition.
You may also be injured due to “fixtures” in the retail store. Fixtures are objects that are permanent and not temporary. This could include stairs without handrails, steps that are too high, or “step-downs.”This Broward County Retail Store Accident Attorney/Lawyer Fights for his Clients With Force
If you are injured in a retail store, then it will be important to know if the retail store itself was the owner of the property where you were injured or if the store had a landlord. For example, if you were injured due to a fixture in a retail store (e.g., you fell down steps that were too high), you will most likely have a case against the property owner/the landlord since there was probably not much the retail store itself could have done to fix the steps. This would be true unless the retail store knew that one of the fixtures was dangerous and didn’t call the landlord to let them know. In that case, it would be the retail store (and not the landlord) that would be responsible. After all, if the landlord didn’t know of the dangerous condition, there would be no way for it to correct the problem.
Finally, employees in a retail store can cause you injuries. For example, they may bump, push or trip you and cause you injuries. In this case, you may have a personal injury case against the retail store itself. After all, a business entity is responsible for the actions of its employees under the legal theory of “respondeat superior.”Effective Representation Provided by this South Florida Retail Store Accident Law Firm
