Department store owners are responsible for maintaining their facilities in adequate condition to receive customers, so they must have clean spaces, aisles free of objects on the floor, stable shelves, and perform adequate maintenance to their infrastructure.
If the owner does not comply with these regulations, and an accident occurs in the store due to their negligence, the owner must provide the deserved compensation to the injured person, be it the case of an employee or a customer.
If you or a loved one have suffered an accident in a store due to the negligent behavior of a department store owner or employee while you were working or shopping, you deserve to be compensated for any physical or emotional damage caused by the accident.
The compensation you receive depends on the injuries you have suffered, their severity, and the losses this has represented for you.
Injuries can range from slight bumps or sprains to trauma that leaves sequelae on you or your mobility for life. In these cases, the expenses that must be compensated will be much higher since they will include hospitals, drugs, and therapies, equipment, among others.
The losses that these types of accidents entail are generally financial since a severe injury will prevent you from working for a period of time in which you will not receive the money you expected and for which the store owner will also have to pay.
When suffering an accident like this, it will be essential to get legal support for your case. A lawyer can help you gather the necessary evidence to receive your compensation. Never try to settle the situation with the owner directly, as you run the risk of receiving the compensation that the landlord is responsible for paying.
