Burlington Retail Store Accident Lawyers
Store owners have a vested interest in providing a clean, welcoming environment for patrons. They also have a legal duty to provide a safe environment. If you were injured because the proprietors created or ignored a dangerous condition, you are entitled to seek appropriate compensation.
The Burlington injury attorneys of Smith Magram Michaud Colonna, P.C., have helped clients bring successful premises liability claims against stores and commercial establishments. We handle slip-and-fall accidents throughout Burlington County, Camden County and surrounding New Jersey. Even if you think your injuries are minor, we encourage you to reach out to us for a free consultation.
Premises Liability Injuries In South Jersey Stores
We do not hesitate to stand up to major corporations and big insurance companies when our clients have been injured through no fault of their own. We pursue slip-and-fall compensation in claims against:
- Big box retailers (Walmart, Target, Sam’s Club, etc.)
- Drug stores
- Clothing shops
- Shopping malls
- Bars and restaurants
Commercial enterprises have a duty to maintain the floors and stairs within their building, as well as the sidewalks, parking lots and exterior areas. Unfortunately, management sometimes lacks the staffing or protocols to address hazardous conditions in a timely fashion: snow and ice, spills and water leaks, potholes and tripping hazards, falling merchandise or sharp protrusions, or other dangers.
Obtaining Compensation For Your Serious Injury
Store owners sometimes offer free groceries or store credit, or victims sign their life away and later discover the injuries are more serious than they seemed at the time. Contacting an attorney after a slipping or tripping accident in a store is the best way to protect your interests. It costs nothing to speak with our lawyers, and we welcome all types of injury cases, big or small.
After a retail or grocery store accident, you should report your injury to customer service and fill out an incident report. When the management follows up to see how you are doing, you can refer them to us. We will obtain the incident report, secure any video footage, and correspond with the store or its insurance company to negotiate fair compensation. Without legal representation, you are likely to get the runaround or minimal offers that do not cover your medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.
