Attorney Jeff Shaw has handled slip and falls against Family Express convenience stores and gas stations in Indiana.
These cases involve both slip and falls in the parking lots outside the store when snow and ice removal or maintenance was not done correctly and inside the store on spills. Sometimes, boxes or shelves collapse upon unsuspecting customers.
Family Express has guidelines and training it gives employees to prevent such matters from occurring.
Oftentimes, Family Express convenience stores and gas stations have contracts with local snow plow companies to salt and plow snow and remove ice from the parking lots. A careful examination of these contracts is necessary to know whether the provisions were followed correctly.
Like most convenience stores, the greatest number of slips and falls come just inside the doors, where floors get the most foot traffic and other customers drag water and wetness to the floors inside the common doorways.
Various convenience stores handle this problem in different ways -- some smart, some not so smart. (I've literally seen a convenience store place cardboard inside the door during a rainstorm that became soaked by customers, leading to a serious fall and injury to a young girl.)
Attorney Jeff Shaw has read literally dozens of these contracts and contacted several experts throughout the years to give an opinion as to whether the injury suffered was preventable.
