Do I Need A Lawyer That Has Experience With Dollar General?*

If you have been injured in an incident that involves a dollar store and you think that they are liable for your damages, you might be wondering if you should talk with a lawyer that has worked on a case against the dollar store.

While it might be helpful because the attorney has contacts with the store already, any personal injury attorney can help you with your claim.

However, a previous claim might have given the attorney insight in knowing who to contact and how to proceed with such a claim.

If you have suffered an injury and you think the store is liable for your damages, you should consult with a personal injury attorney because you might have a valid claim against the retailer. An attorney will be able to determine if negligence on the part of the retailer was responsible for the damages that you suffered.

In order for you to have a successful claim against the retail establishment, you have to prove the company was negligent in your claim.

The Elements of a Negligence Claim

Your attorney will have to prove the four elements of negligence for a successful personal injury claim against the dollar store. These elements will show that the defendant, which in this case is Dollar General, acted in a negligent manner and as a result, you suffered injuries or damages.

Those four elements that must be proven are:

  • Duty of Care- You must show that the dollar store had a legal duty to you under the specific circumstances at hand.

  • Breach Of Duty- You then have to be able to prove that the store breached that duty by failing to fulfill requirements or by not acting in a certain way.

  • Causation- You must show that the actions of the store or its employees caused the damages that you suffered.

  • Damages- You have to prove that the accident that resulted from the negligent actions of Dollar General resulted in your injuries. This may require you provide photos of your injuries, medical records, statements from medical providers, and work records.
