Department stores, supermarkets and other retail outlets can be found all throughout Philadelphia and beyond. Almost every one of these outlets is marked by large outside parking lots and open spaces with surfaces. Sometimes there is a commingling of pedestrians and cars. When these areas are improperly monitored or maintained, they present significant potential for serious injury. In addition, displays, aisles, escalators and elevators can pose issues inside the premises.
Spills, in particular, can be dangerous. When water accumulates on the wrong surface, particularly if an incorrect paint has been applied, it can become like ice. When spills happen in an aisle, they need to be blocked off with hazard cones. Aside from that, all areas should be regularly patrolled to ensure safety. If they are not, people can suffer significant injuries to the knee, wrist, elbow, shoulder, face, jaw, teeth or hips.
If you or someone close to you has been injured in a department store, it is important that you understand your rights and to what you may be compensated for healing and recovery.
