Attorney Jeff Shaw has handled slip and falls against Walgreen's Pharmacy and 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.
Walgreen's Pharmacy and convenience stores have guidelines and training it gives employees to prevent such matters from occurring.
Oftentimes, Walgreen's Pharmacy and convenience stores 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.
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.
Walgreens and Walgreens Pharmacy stores have made an interesting decision with regard to the aesthetics of each store -- corporate risk management has decided to retain and install tile floors in the aisles of the store. The tile floors give a more sterile or medicinal look to the store -- even though the risk of slips and falls or tripping or slipping on water or melted snow inside the store increases with tile over carpeting (such as CVS Pharmacy has decided to install).
Like many convenience stores, Walgreen's has a limited staff of employees available at any one time to handle all tasks of safety and customer service adequately.
