Know the facts about shopping injuries

When you go shopping in Missouri, you do not expect to get hurt. However, you may sometimes sustain an injury if there are unsafe conditions in a store. At McShane and Brady, LLC, we know it is important for you to understand what you should do in this situation. 

You might get hurt in a store in many ways. According to FindLaw, you or your child may incur an injury if a shopping cart tips over. You might also slip in the parking lot if staff members do not remove snow, ice or leaves from the pavement. Additionally, if you reach for merchandise on a high shelf, you might get hurt if items fall off the shelf. Torn carpets and wet floors can also cause you to slip and fall. In some situations, a store might be responsible for the injuries you incurred if staff members did not properly maintain the premises or if they knew about a hazard but did not remove it.

Shopping injuries can range in severity. If you fall in a store, you may sometimes only have bruises. However, you may also incur more serious wounds. In some situations, you might sprain your ankle or wrist or fracture a bone. If merchandise falls on you from above, you might sometimes experience trauma to your head. 

It is the duty of each store to make sure all of their customers will be safe. This means that staff members need to make sure the parking lot has enough light and that the stair railings are secure. Additionally, they need to ensure they remove potential hazards inside the store, such as spills. You can read more about this subject on our webpage
