Slip and fall injuries can happen in retail stores of all kinds in Indiana. Whether it is a department store, convenience store or other store, each landowner and business owner has a duty to its customers of the highest level according to the Indiana Supreme Court. This duty means the landowner or business owner must exercise "reasonable care" to protect customers from unsafe conditions. See case of Burrell v. Meads within.
An Indiana retail slip and fall injury attorney is a powerful advocate for those victims who have suffered in a preventable accident. A retail slip and fall accident is one of the most common causes of injuries like broken bones, fractures and head injuries when someone slips and falls on another person's property. A retail facility has a responsibility to customers legally on the premises to ensure that any unreasonably dangerous conditions are removed from the property.
The support of a knowledgeable attorney from Shaw Law is crucial for a victim to be able to recover maximum compensation. A retail slip and fall injury must be reported to the manager or the owner of that facility as soon as possible. But an injured victim should also take necessary steps to protect themselves going forward.
A slip and fall injury victim has a limited time in which to file a legal claim and the support of Shaw Law to help get you back on your feet so that you can remain focused on your medical treatments and your best possible chance of recovery is important.
At Shaw Law, we gather all of the evidence such as inventory reports, inspection reports and video surveillance tapes. We then consult directly with the involved insurance companies to show how your injuries were directly connected to a preventable and dangerous condition on the property.
We don’t allow the insurance companies to push back and low ball you into a settlement offer that does not fully compensate you for the injuries you have sustained. It is our goal to help you get to the best possible outcome in your case whether that is in settlement or in court.
At Shaw Law, we have developed a track record across Indiana for representing victim interests to the fullest and keeping victims apprised of the status of their case over the duration. You deserve to know the different types of damages available to you and whether any settlement offers have been presented so that you can make an informed decision about how to proceed.
As a victim in a retail store, it can be shocking to realize that the manager or owner of the property is pushing back and attempting to deny or delay your recovery of compensation through their insurance company. This is where it is a powerful experience to have a knowledgeable negotiator at your side, ensuring that you have the best possible chance to receive the compensation you need to put this unfortunate incident behind you and to move on with your life.
