Slip and Fall at Walgreens in Texas*

Slip and fall accidents are not only very common in many stores and supermarkets, but they also can happen almost anywhere, even in a Walgreens, or any other pharmacy store. Slip and fall accidents often happen because the floor surface is slippery, wet, or sticky. This could be a fault of the management of the store. Because many slip and fall accidents may cause serious injuries, if you slipped and fell in a Walgreens or any other pharmacy store in Texas, you may have good grounds for filing a claim for compensation from the store. You will need evidence to show that your injuries were caused by the store’s negligence.

What to Do If You Slip and Fall at Walgreens in Texas
Unexpected accidents can cause anxiety and confusion as well as physical injuries. Your success in obtaining compensation depends on proof that the accident could have been avoided if the store’s management and staff had been more proactive and had removed any potential hazards.

Whatever the nature of your injuries, even if they don’t seem too serious, you should seek medical attention and obtain a doctor’s assessment or report. If you need treatment or surgery, it is critically important that you obtain documentation and receipts for all payments made.

If you are able to do so, you should make a note of what it was that caused the accident at Walgreens, or any other pharmacy. Ask anyone who witnessed the accident for contact details and whether they would be prepared and willing to make a statement about what they saw.

What to Expect During the Claims Process
You would normally file a claim with the negligent party’s own insurer as you are claiming against their premises liability insurance. You need to have evidence to support your claim when you file it, such as medical assessments, results of treatment received, invoices and receipts for payments related to your injury, eye-witness statements, photos and videos taken at the scene of the accident, etc.

A personal injury lawyer can help you to submit evidence and negotiate with the company and its insurer for a fair settlement.

Pharmacy Store Slip and Fall Settlements
A personal injury settlement after a slip and fall at Walgreens or any other pharmacy store may be made without going to court, but the attorney(s) that you hire may be prepared to take the case to court if negotiations with the store’s insurers are not productive and/or fair to you.

Most slip and fall compensation claims involve presenting a case for both economic and non-economic damages sustained. Economic damages include the cost of medical treatment and compensation for lost wages or other income. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering compensation and, in some cases, where negligence can be shown to have been egregious, punitive damages.
