I fell while shopping at Target. Can I sue? Will I get compensated?
If you were injured in a slip and fall accident while shopping at popular stores such as Target, Walmart or Macy’s, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention immediately. Make sure you tell the doctor where you fell and what caused you to fall so that this becomes part of the medical records. At your earliest convenience contact a personal injury attorney so that your rights may be protected. It’s possible you may be able to sue them. A lawyer will discuss your specific case and let you know your legal options and possible compensation you may be entitled to.
Its very helpful to take pictures of where the incident took place as well as of your injury. This will help provide evidence of how the scene looked, in case a dangerous condition that caused your fall is fixed.
You want to show that the dangerous condition was there and document it.
Slip and falls may be caused by foreign substances such as water, wax, liquids, soap, or oil. They can make a shopping mall’s beautiful marble or terrazzo floor as slippery as ice. We have successfully represented shopping mall customers who have been injured in Long Island, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan.
