Los Angeles shopping injuries do not just happen during the madness of Black Friday shopping but throughout the year-- seriously injuring thousands of individuals and children every year. When you go to a local grocery or department store near you, you really aren't looking out for dangers because you aren't expecting them there but the combination of poor maintenance (for permanent and temporary issues) and failure to warn of dangers means that injuries occur at even the nicest stores. If you have been seriously injured while shopping and think or know you have a case on your hands-- give us a call immediately to discuss the matter further.
Common Los Angeles Shopping Injuries
Maybe it's the amazing weather. Maybe it's the abundance of options. Whatever the reason-- Southern California loves to get out and shop. Unfortunately, that is also the reason why we top the list of shopping injuries everywhere. Here's a look at some of the most common Los Angeles shopping injuries:
- Slip and fall: By far and away a shopping slip and fall is the most common shopping personal injury we see. Shopping slip and fall accidents include: wet and slippery floors, uneven floors, torn carpeting, lighting issues, parking lot falls and mechanical issues with elevators and escalators. These falls can be serious and in some cases deadly depending on the nature of the fall and the individual.
- Head and body injuries: We recently blogged about the tragic death of a toddler when a mirror fell on top of her at a shoe store. Head and body shopping injuries are serious and sometimes deadly and take a variety of forms including unsecured large objects such as mirrors, retail signs and products. In big retail stores such as a Costco or WalMart, these stores often place the item you want at an unreasonable high location, forcing shoppers to attempt to climb or get hit with a product.
- Overcrowding: Overcrowded stores combined with overeager shoppers always leads to shopping personal injuries in Los Angeles, and not just on Black Friday. While a great sale with limited inventory usually results in an injury, so too can a busy Sunday afternoon shopping at your local supermarket. Even if it is not an injury from another shopper (in which case you might have a good claim against the store and the individual), busy stores means that the workers may not be paying close enough attention to things like spills, merchandise people can trip on and other common sources of slip and fall accidents.
Los Angeles Shopping Personal Injury Lawsuits?
Can you sue a store over a shopping injury? ABSOLUTELY. As a shopper, the store has a certain duty to keep its' aisles clear, its' floors even and dry and its' parking lots safe....and much more. When this doesn't happen is usually when an injury occurs and these types of injuries can ultimately result in substantial medical bills, missed time at work, disability needs and much more. These are not things you should have to pay for out of pocket which is why Walch Law is here to help. Depending on the store and the nature of your injuries, your recovery can be substantial.
