Injured in a Store Real Life Experiences

Let’s say you’re injured on someone else’s property. For simplicity’s sake, we’ll make it a common scenario—slipping and falling on a supermarket’s hard tile floor due to residue from a recent clean-up. The worker failed to place a “Caution: Wet Floor” sign to mark the area. You end up in a hospital emergency room.

Your health insurance doesn’t fully cover your medical bills; you’re going to miss some work which means lost wages; and you’ve emerged from the incident suffering the aftermath of a cracked elbow and a concussion. You realize the store bears responsibility for your injuries and should provide you with compensation.

Tripping incidents like this scenario can happen without warning… with devastating effects. If this has happened to you, it’s important to call Starr Law Offices right away at (727) 777-5767. But this is just one possible incident! Have you ever wondered what other kinds of premises or personal injury incidents we’ve seen over our 25 years in private practice?

Starr Law Offices has significant experience helping claimants find resolution following incidents on others’ premises when personal injury results. We have had clients with these exact fact cases:

  • Tree root pushing up sidewalk at a rental property
  • Humidifier leaking water on the floor
  • Refrigerator leaking water on the floor
  • Electrical wires left uncovered
  • Broken floor tiles
  • Litter blown in from the rain
  • Potholes in parking lots
  • Product falling from elevated storage shelves
  • Being hit in the head at a home improvement store by an employee improperly carrying a 2×4 piece of lumber
  • Broken barber chair
  • Slippery soap spilling on the floor that’s not mopped up
  • Water leaking from a freezer

Each claim is different with claimants, responsible parties and locations affected by diverse circumstances and influences. Every case, however, requires thoughtful, qualified legal expertise to assure the optimal outcome for wrongfully injured parties. If you’ve been hurt on another person’s property, you may wonder, “Now what?” Let Starr Law Offices assist you in recovering your due compensation.
