If you slip and fall while shopping for goods at Target, or any other big box store, you should be able to file a PI claim but first of all you have to be able to prove that the big box store was the one which caused your slip and fall accident. A big box store could have hazards that might lead to a slip and fall accident and serious injuries.
If you file a claim for a slip & fall at a big box store you’ll need to prove the big box store was at fault.. If you slip and fall on a slippery floor or any other product left on the floor and the big box store workers hadn’t removed the dangerous product you may be able to prove that the big box store’s failure to act quickly caused your slip and fall to take place.
How to Show that Big Box Store Negligence Caused a Slip and Fall Injury
The easiest way to prove that the big box store caused your slip and fall injury is to prove that the big box store’s manager or its workers knew that something had been dropped on the floor by a customer by mistake causing a slip and fall hazard but did nothing about it.
Big box owners have a duty to provide clean and safe conditions for their shoppers but cannot be held responsible if someone slips over just after a hazard has fallen off the shelf.
Proving that the big box staff /manager knew about the hazard but didn’t make any attempt to fix it before your slip and fall injury, can be difficult, but not impossible.
The main way of proving the big box is at fault for the slip and fall accident is by ensuring you have the best evidence that indicates quite clearly that the slip and fall accident that took place was as a result of a hazard that the big box workers should have known about.
Evidence to Show a Slip and Fall Was the Big Box Store’s Fault
There are three important sources of evidence that could be used to prove that a slip and fall injury is the fault of the big box store which are:
• taking photographs at the scene of the slip and fall accident site showing the slip and fall hazard but with the warning sign absent;
• asking eye witnesses, such as other shoppers who saw the slip and fall accident take place and are prepared to act as witnesses;
• requesting access to the big box store’s security camera photos which will have a record of earlier events.
