You might think that keeping an auto parts store in order should be reasonably straightforward, especially when many parts and items are in a space with restricted access for employees only. However, there are still a dozen or more rows of shelving with small parts, tools, liquids, and cleaning products that can be challenging to keep tidy.
So patrons need to be alert as they walk the aisles of Advance Auto Parts and watch for these common slip and fall safety concerns that the staff could have overlooked:
While all of the issues on this list appear to be minor safety concerns, they each have the potential to cause a severe injury should you slip and fall while in an Advance Auto Parts store. Not only could you suffer injuries due to impact with the floor, but there are also many potential injuries you could suffer falling on a sharp shelf corner or a freestanding display. And the worst part of these safety hazards is that they could have been eliminated or marked with a caution sign by a dedicated employee to prevent customers from suffering any injury.
As you discover the cost of your medical care after suffering a slip and fall injury at Advance Auto Parts, you are sure to wonder who could be responsible for these expenses. The best way to get a reliable answer to this and any other legal questions is a free consultation with an expert at Lone Star Injury Law Firm. Our lawyers will help you understand the concept of duty of care and how this obligation could be the reason you have grounds for an Advance Auto Parts accident injury lawsuit.
Duty of care is the legal obligation of businesses and property owners to provide a safe and hazard-free setting for their guests and customers. The minimum level of care is defined as what the average prudent person would provide in a similar situation. For example, if something is spilled on the floor at your house, you would mop up the liquid to prevent anyone from suffering a slip and fall accident. And if there is a spill at an Advance Auto Parts store, the staff is required to act in the same manner to eliminate the hazard promptly to protect patrons.
If the store staff fails to meet the basic requirements of maintenance and housekeeping, they can be found negligent in their duty of care. In addition, if that negligence is found to have caused or contributed to a customer’s slip and fall accident injuries, the store could be liable for the victim’s losses and expenses created by the injuries they sustained.
The value of any personal injury claim is based not so much on the injuries suffered by the victim but on the losses and expenses the injuries caused. So there is no preset amount for a slip and fall that results in a broken leg or arm. Instead, you work with the experts at Lone Star Injury Law Firm to compile all of these expenses suffered due to your injuries. In most cases, the cost will include:
The total of these expenses is often the amount of your slip and fall claim. However, in cases with extensive injuries or lengthy recovery time, your legal team will provide a dollar amount to add to the claim to compensate you for your pain and suffering due to your Advance Auto Parts slip and fall accident injuries.
Personal injury victims are allotted two years from the date of their injury to file a claim against Advance Auto Parts. If they do not have the case in the hands of the court system at that time, the victim will lose the right to seek compensation for their losses and expenses. By contrast, there is no limitation on how soon after the injury incident the victim can file a claim. In cases where the victim is unable to work and needs their settlement rapidly to pay bills, the claim is often presented as soon as the legal team has it completed. Your Lone Star Injury Law Form legal experts will work diligently to complete the case and have it filed at the time that best meets your needs.
Many personal injury victims worry they cannot afford to pay the upfront legal fees required by many law firms. However, when you work with the pros at Lone Star Injury Law Firm, that is never a concern. Our client-friendly payment policy eliminates out of pocket payments that add to the financial stress of our clients. Instead, we only get paid after we have secured the compensation you need to cover your legal fees and other expenses created by your Advance Auto Parts slip and fall accident injuries.
