Discount stores like Dollar Tree are very handy when you are looking for economically priced products. However, there are rarely enough employees in these stores.
They are often forced to do all sorts of jobs, like taking money, restocking the shelves, keeping the store clean and helping customers and so on. The result is that accidents are likely to happen.
Messy or untidy store floor surfaces can cause slip and fall accidents and hastily stocked shelves may result in injuries when things fall off unexpectedly.
If you do have an accident in a Dollar Tree store you should talk to a personal injury lawyer about filing a claim for compensation which can help to pay for unwanted medical bills and replace wages you might have lost.
Damages You May Receive After an Accident at a Dollar Tree
The most common store accidents are slip, trip and fall accidents and when store goods fall off and hit you. You might just get away with minor scratches or a bruised ego, but sometimes the injuries are more severe.
There is no reason why you should suffer financially if the injuries were caused by the store’s negligence. Even if you can’t blame the accident on any one employee, the store may be at fault for deliberately short staffing.
Your claim for damages should include obvious things like all medical treatment and lost earnings as well as more subjective damages such as compensation for the pain and suffering experienced.
Make sure that all medical examinations and treatment are well documented as your claim for damages will need to show evidence that the injury happened in the store, as well as how much it is worth in terms of a claim.
Why Consider a Lawyer?
Chain stores like Dollar Tree have liability insurance to cover them if a customer is hurt in one of their stores, but that doesn’t mean that insurers are keen to hand out compensation.
You may find that it takes longer than you thought to get a claim honored. They may quibble over who was at fault and pour doubt over your injuries and how much they cost.
You will find that experienced personal injury lawyers are used to these methods and know how to deal with reluctant or obstinate insurers. They can also ensure that you have sufficient proof of who was at fault before filing your claim which can save you time as well as making the whole claim process more likely to succeed.

Most PI lawyers defer fees until settlement which means you don’t have to pay any up-front fees at a time when you could be financially stretched because of the injury. The lawyer is unlikely to take the case on unless your chances of winning a claim are good.
