Slipped And Fell On A Wet Floor At Home Depot*

Hundreds of thousands of people are hurt every year in slip and falls at stores. When so many people are coming and going all the time inevitably someone will spill something or water will end up on the floor or a liquid will leak and create hazardous conditions that could lead someone to fall. Slip and falls can be responsible for terrible injuries that will take a long time to recover from. Back injuries, foot and knee injuries, even head injuries can all happen from a simple slip and fall. If you are injured by a slip and fall you may be able to file a personal injury claim and get money to cover your medical bills and other expenses like lost wages.

Do You Have A Claim?

You might think that slip and fall injuries are just accidents that happen. But if the conditions that caused your fall could have been prevented then the store is liable for your fall. If your slip and fall was partly or fully caused by any of these conditions you can file a personal injury claim for money to cover your medical and other expenses:

  • There was a wet floor that wasn’t cleaned up promptly.
  • A spill anywhere in the store wasn’t mopped up well.
  • An area with a spill or water on the floor wasn’t given proper signage or roped off to make it inaccessible to customers.
  • The spill or the liquid was in front of the register, in the central aisle, in the doorway, or in another high traffic part of the store.
  • You reported the spill to employees but it wasn’t cleaned up and then you fell.
  • The substance that was spilled was colorless and difficult for an average shopper to see.

If you are in a slip and fall at Home Depot or any store, you should take photos or a short video clip of the area where you fell so that you will have evidence of the reason for the fall later on.

Why You Need A Personal Injury Attorney

Filing a personal injury claim can be confusing. Most people don’t really know how to file a claim or what documentation they need in order to get their claim approved quickly. A personal injury attorney that specialized in personal injury cases and has handled hundreds of them can be a great resource to help you file a personal injury claim. Personal injury attorneys don’t get paid unless your claim is approved. That means they will do whatever they can to get your claim approved as quickly as possible. Talk to a personal injury attorney to find out what your options are after a slip and fall.
