Were You In an Accident in a Dollar General*?

If you slip over or trip up in a store or you are hit while getting out of your car by a store owned vehicle, you may be able to claim compensation for any injuries you have suffered by filing a personal injury claim against the store.

For example, if a bunch of heavy tins fall off a shelf in a Dollar General store and you are concussed, you should be eligible to claim compensation for any medical treatment from the store manager or Dollar General itself.

Personal injury claims are rarely straightforward and can take persistence and legal advice and help in negotiating with insurance adjusters from an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Damages You May Receive After an Accident in a Dollar General Store

In the example given above, if you were hit by a heavy object in a Dollar General store, you would probably have cuts, bumps and bruises, possibly severe, to the head and upper body. You may have been knocked out and later need x-rays and other medical assessment to discover if you were more seriously injured. You may have suffered from concussion and even brain damage.

At the very least, you will want to claim for medical treatment and lost wages if you are forced to stay away from work for a time. You may also claim compensation for the pain and suffering involved. Any claim for damages must also consider future medical treatment and rehabilitation, as well as the effects of permanent disability on your ability to work.

Should I Talk to A Lawyer That Has Worked On a Case Against Dollar General?

Why Consider a Lawyer?

Filing a personal injury claim can be a stressful and complicated process. You will almost certainly have to deal with Dollar General’s insurer if you wish to file a claim. You will need to prove that someone in the store was negligent, or the company itself was negligent.

You will need to back up your claim for damages with documentation showing what the injury has cost you, as well as a well structured estimate of any future costs, if any.

You are unlikely to get ready acceptance of your claim by the insurer, particularly if they know you have no legal help. You are strongly advised to get advice from a PI lawyer before filing a claim.

The lawyer will have a good idea whether your claim will be viable and if he or she takes on your case can help negotiate skillfully with the insurer. Most compensation claims are resolved without having to go to court, but having a lawyer on your side allows for this eventuality if necessary.

Work With a PI Lawyer Today

Many victims of accidents that have been caused as a result of negligence fail to get compensation because they are reluctant to use a lawyer, afraid of the thought of paying legal fees. In fact, this fear is unfounded, as the majority of PI lawyers work on contingency fee arrangements. That means that fees are deferred until settlement is complete.
