Department Store Accidents in NYC | What You Need to Know

Most of us never expect to sustain a serious injury while shopping for clothes, toys, or other gifts, but, unfortunately, these accidents do happen. Please continue reading and reach out to an experienced Bronx slip and fall lawyer from The Law Office of Richard M.  Kenny to learn more about department store accidents and how we can help if you were hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do department store accidents most commonly happen?

Department store accidents can happen for a range of reasons. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, various parties may be at fault. In many cases, however, department store accidents are caused by negligent department store management or employees. Some of the most common causes of department store accidents that our firm sees are as follows:

  • Items falling from shelves and onto customers
  • Negligently assembled displays
  • Dangerous revolving doors
  • Insufficient security
  • Dangerous elevators or escalators
  • Dangerous parking lots or sidewalks
  • Spills or debris left uncleared away

How do I know if I will have a valid claim for a department store accident?

If you can prove that you were hurt as a direct result of unsafe property conditions that should have been resolved timely, there is a very good chance that you will have a valid personal injury claim. To prove this, our firm will work to obtain various forms of evidence, such as pictures of unsafe department store conditions, witness statements, surveillance footage of your accident, medical documents, and more.

What is the time limit for filing personal injury claims in New York City?

If you are injured on someone else’s property, in most cases, you will have to file your personal injury claim within three years of the date your accident happened. Waiting longer than three years will most likely result in you being permanently barred from suing. If you have any additional questions or you are ready to get started, simply pick up the phone and give our New York City personal injury lawyer a call. We are here to help you, every step of the way.
