Bigger is better when you are looking for discount deals or buying in bulk. But “big box” retailers and supermarkets also pose larger risks. These are working warehouses with safety hazards in almost every aisle. The owners and managers have a heightened responsibility to maintain a safe environment for shoppers and protect them from foreseeable harm.
Guenard & Bozarth has successfully sued big-box chain stores on behalf of clients who were injured. Where the average person may get the runaround, we get results. Our attorneys will pursue your fair and rightful compensation for injuries arising from the negligence of management and employees.
We do not hesitate to pursue premises liability claims against major chains in Northern California such as:
The types of accidents that occur are as varied as the merchandise the big-box stores sell. Common accidents include slip-and-fall injuries from leaking coolant sources, slippery entryways and walkways, parking lot hazards, falling merchandise and debris left in aisles.
In home improvement stores and warehouse clubs, the chances of being injured while shopping are even greater. We have seen cases of heavy products falling from above, shelf collapse, protruding materials, pallet jack and forklift accidents, and a host of other “booby traps.”
The manager may escort you from the premises, perhaps with offers of gift cards or other goodwill gestures. You should not sign any statements or waivers, or leave without an accident report. If possible, take photos of the hazard and your injuries.
If you were the victim of a retail store accident, your next call should be to one of the experienced lawyers at Guenard & Bozarth. We have handled hundreds of cases like these, and we will evaluate your case for free and determine what next step is best for you.
