INJURED WHEN SHOPPING?
If you are injured, the business and the property owner may be liable for your injury and that injury's impact on your life.
Likely suspects include ice or snow, water on the floor, an errant floor mat or merchandise on the floor posing a tripping hazard. It may also be important that the store knew about the hazard beforehand and whether the store had an inspection system in place so should have know about the hazard. Sometimes a store may have a maintenance company helping them keep the property clean or the parking lot free of snow. That maintenance company may also be responsible for your injury.
If you are hurt in a store, get the legal information you need. Your family may also have claims as a result of your injuries under the Family Law Act. There are limitation periods or time limits to watch out for if you need to start a lawsuit. Don't risk losing your right to obtain compensation for your injuries.
