Slip and Fall Injury at Home Depot

This is one of the most common injuries that our lawyers see at Home Depot.

Many of the items in the store can lead to a slip and fall. Lumber and liquid products are just a few of the dangers.

If they happen to fall off the shelves, they can be hazardous to an unsuspecting customer.

If these items are not secured in a safe and proper manner there is a chance of them falling.

Let’s not forget that employees of Home Depot are also at risk of an injury.

Employees can be injured by no fault of their own just like the customer.

If there is grease or an unmarked wet floor a slip and fall can happen.

Owners and management have an obligation to provide a safe environment for their guests and employees.

This does not always happen. Sawdust and wood chips need to be cleaned up in a timely manner. Maintaining safety at a store like Home Depot is crucial.

If safety is not provided then an injury is just around the corner. Watch out! A negligent fork lift operator can do some serious damage.

If employees are aware of the risks and knowingly ignore them, they can be held liable. There must be an effort to fix the potential problem and/or display warning signage.



What To Do After an Injury Accident at Home Depot?

Take some deep breaths – This can help you relax. Try and measure the severity of the fall. Get yourself to a safe spot if it is possible. Getting up too quickly can cause even more damage to the injury. Rest and try to get you blood pressure to adjust. Falling hard can be very traumatic and stressful.

Seek medical attention – It is most important to get the medical attention from a qualified doctor. After an injury you may feel ok. The problem is, you may not be. Injuries can take a while to show themselves. When the blood is pumping you may not be able to tell the true extent of the injury. Internal injuries can be dangerous. Internal bleeding can cause multiple complications. This can even be life threatening in some instances. Symptoms from concussions and other injuries may not be noticeable right away. Getting a professional opinion and treatment is the first thing you should focus on.

Make a Report – Property owners and management need to be aware of the accident and injury. This is true whether you are an employee or a customer of the store. Making sure that there is the proper documentation is important. This is a vital piece of evidence that is necessary. The sooner that the report is made the better. As time goes by the memory of the details may fade. The insurance adjuster or lawyer may wonder why you took so long.

Documentation – It is important to have the documentation of the accident. The details of the case are crucial to any lawsuit. Premises liability can get complicated. When going up against Home Depot it is vital that the evidence show proof. Get your phone out and take pictures and video. If an item was on the floor and caused a trip and fall it needs to be documented. A wet, slippery floor without warning signs should be documented. Some of the other forms of documentation may be eyewitness statements. Make sure to gather everyone’s personal information. Further contact may be needed later in order to win the case. Stores like Home Depot will not just hand you over a pile of cash. Keep track of all medical bills and documentation of injuries that are related to the case.

Keep Clothing – Clothing can be important to a case. Their attorneys may try and make claims that are not true. If there is blood or other evidence on the clothes that show the injury you need to save it. Having shoes and clothes from the injury may come in handy later in the case. Hold on to them.

Contact a Personal Injury Attorney – Before you speak too much about the accident get the advice of a lawyer. The Law Offices of Richard Harris will help guide you. After an injury you may be in pain and emotional. Their attorneys will be looking for anything that you may say to use against you. You don’t want to say anything that could hurt your case. Our attorneys will protect you and speak to them on your behalf.

If there is proof that Home Depot could have prevented the injury you have a case.

Management was aware of the danger but provided no safety precautions sometimes does happen.

Store camera footage can often provide the proof needed. It may take an attorney to get it.

The faster you ask for it the better.

Save any paperwork or statements from mangers or employees after an injury accident.

Our attorneys will do their best to put together a winning strategy.
