Seeking Damages From Negligent Store Owners
Stores in New York that are open to the public are required to maintain safe premises. This means they must ensure that there are no foreseeable hazards that could cause harm to a customer. When a store owner or employees fail to keep their property safe, however, visitors can easily become seriously injured.
At Daniella Levi & Associates, P.C., we are aggressive advocates for people in Queens and the other New York boroughs who suffered an in-store injury while shopping at a supermarket, department store or other type of store.
What Is An In-Store Injury?
An in-store injury is an injury that happens in a store because of the owner’s or an employee’s negligence. The cause of the injury must have been foreseeable but not addressed in a timely manner. Examples of in-store injury scenarios are:
- Slipping and falling on spilled food or liquid in a grocery store
- Slipping and falling on freshly mopped floors, but there was no “wet floor” sign to warn shoppers to be careful
- An item falling from a high shelf onto a shopper
- A package being left unattended in an area where a customer would be reasonably expected to walk, causing him or her to trip and fall
