The millions of citizens that call Pennsylvania home regularly visit their local supermarket expecting to find their favorite groceries. Some of them are even pleasantly surprised when they encounter some of their favorite products that have been placed on sale.
What no one expects is to suffer an injury that leaves them with permanently debilitating injures. Unfortunately, this is precisely what happens to many unsuspecting store patrons.
In situations such as these is where the State of Pennsylvania’s strong tradition of civil law proves most critical.
Victims of these falls in stores are entitled to pursue significant compensation through a lawsuit or settlement. With an experienced legal representative handling their case, store owners will know that their negligence will not go unchecked.
When a devastating injury ravages the lives of victims and their families, it is possible to achieve justice. Let the Justice Guardians help you make it right.
Our team has been fighting for the rights of victims in the State of Pennsylvania for decades. They have stood up to the insurance companies time after time, fighting aggressively to get their clients the full compensation they deserve.
However, most individuals aren’t aware of the legal protections that the law affords them. Many think that if they suffer an injury in a store, it is on them to pay for all of the medical treatment that may result, regardless of circumstances. This could not be further from the truth.
For this reason, our dedicated attorneys have used this page to answer some of the most common questions that victims of store injuries have soon after their accidents.
When a victim first suffers a falling injury in a store, they may be embarrassed and simply try to shake off the fall. However, this can be a big mistake. Victims should visit a medical professional as soon as possible to assess their actual health status.
Injuries may manifest days or weeks after the initial trauma. A doctor will be able to assess if any serious injuries were suffered and if there is new potential for injuries to develop over time after the first impact was suffered.
Furthermore, any medical records should be saved as they will be required in the case that a lawsuit or other type of legal claim is pursued later on.
While victims may be incapacitated directly after their accident, they should do their best to gather as much evidence as possible right after the incident. This task is ideally done by a family member or friend who may have been at the scene with the victim.
Pictures or video of the area should be taken. If there were any witnesses, it could be helpful to get their contact info. It is not assured that a claim can be made just because an accident occurred, but if a suit is indeed filed, this evidence will be essential for the case.
In many cases, it is a very real possibility for a lawsuit to be filed after a slip and fall in a store. This is why, after ensuring the health of the victim, we suggest trying to gather as much evidence as possible.
The legal argument for a store injury lawsuit, just as with any personal injury case, is that of negligence. For a victim to be awarded compensation by a judge or jury, or for a defendant to be willing to come to a settlement, there must be a strong legal argument that the store acted negligently (wholly or in part). As a result, the victim suffered the damages.
These legal cases can be quite complex. In many cases, victims don’t believe they have the potential for compensation because they believe the fall was their own fault. Even in these instances, it is important to discuss the accident with a legal representative who will be able to analyze the circumstances of the incident, review any evidence, and then explain all of the legal steps that may be taken to secure compensation.
Our attorneys provide this legal consultation process entirely free for victims. In fact, we only work on a contingency fee basis; this means that if no compensation is secured on behalf of our client, then we charge no fees for our time and effort.
For us, the most important point of every case is that our clients are happy with the result. We believe this contingency structure assures the satisfaction of all of the victims we represent.
