Slip and Fall Injuries
Minnesota winters cause many of us to slip and fall. Some of these falls lead to serious injuries.
It is not only the snow and ice that we must contend with. Sometimes we encounter slippery or dangerous conditions in the retail stores we shop in. Spilled fluids or misplaced products and tools can lead to life changing injuries.
Many injuries occur in the retail industry due to slips, trips and falls on slippery floor surfaces or in cluttered walkways. To avoid these injuries, a bit of caution can go a long way.
After the fall it is important to record the names and contact information of any witnesses. Have someone photograph the area before the danger is cleaned up. Check
for surveillance cameras and question store employees about obtaining a copy of the video tape.
Although many of these dangers could easily have been prevented by proper maintenance, claims for compensation for injured victims are aggressively defended. It is important to preserve as much evidence as possible.
