NEW YORK  CITY ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS

RETAIL STORE INJURIES 

One of the most frequent questions that our New York City Personal Injury Lawyers and White Plains accident attorneys are asked is "I got hurt in a store, can I sue?".  The answer is that you can sue the store, if they were negligent, in the maintenance of the property or they actively created a danagerous condition. Contary to popular belief, the store is not automatically liable just because someone got hurt on their property.  All property owners and companies that lease commercial property are responsible to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition and if they cause a dangerous condition or allow a dangerous condition to exist without remedying or repairing it, then they can be sued for compensation for personal injuries. 

THE STORE NEEDS TO BE SAFE FOR THE CUSTOMER

If you were injured in a retail store, restaurant, supermarket or big box store, you may have a right to seek monetary damages for your injuries. When you go to a store to spend your hard earned money, the store has a responsibility to make sure their property is reasonably safe. Our New York City accident attorneys have decades of experience in suing retail stores for unsafe conditions.  So whether a display fell on you, or whether you slipped and fell on ice in front of the store, or the store's employees failed to clean up a spill, our New York City and Westchester accident attorneys have the experience to bring your case to a successful resolution.
