Do You Need a Lawyer For a Slip and Fall at Family Dollar?*

Family Dollar is a popular discount store chain. If you have suffered injuries in a slip and fall at Family Dollar, you can pursue a personal injury claim to recover compensation to cover your damages. Through a personal injury claim, you can recover both economic and non-economic losses. You will need to get your claim filed as soon as possible because a statute of limitations applies, and to ensure your rights are protected, you should consult with a personal injury attorney.

What to Do After Your Slip and Fall

If you suffered a slip and fall in Family Dollar, you should notify a manager. They will need to complete an accident report. Be sure to tell them the specific details about what happened and how you were injured. Be sure any witnesses give statements and include their names and contact details. If possible, get photos of the accident scene. Check to see if the incident could have been caught on a surveillance camera.

Establish medical care right away. If you have severe injuries, call an ambulance. Otherwise, seek care from an emergency room or urgent care clinic right away. Be sure to keep copies of medical records and medical bills. Keep copies of prescription receipts, therapy records, receipts for medical devices, medical excuses, and document any missed work and lost wages.

Determining the Damages You Suffered in a Family Dollar Slip and Fall

You can suffer a variety of damages in a Family Dollar slip and fall. You will need to gather up your medical bills. Those bills will be totaled and then a multiplier – from 1 to 5 – will be used to determine your pain and suffering. If you suffered a serious back injury that requires surgery that multiplier will be 4 or 5. If you suffered a soft tissue injury, such as whiplash, the multiplier may be a 1, 1.5, or a 2.


You should consider future medical expenses, future lost earnings, past lost wages, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, any permanent scarring and disfigurement, property damages – such as broken eyeglasses, and any other losses. You will need to maintain documentation to support those losses, such as medical bills, proof of lost wages, photos of the injuries, and so forth. A personal injury lawyer will help you gather up supporting documentation and get your claim underway.

Consult with a Personal Injury Attorney

If you suffered a slip and fall at Family Dollar, you should consult with a personal injury lawyer. You will not have any out-of-pocket expenses because your personal injury attorney will not be paid until you are compensated by a judgment or settlement from Family Dollar. You want a lawyer who is licensed in your state, so he or she can represent you in court and is familiar with the state laws surrounding premises liability and personal injury claims.
