Lowes Store Injury Attorney—Slip and fall Accident
The dramatic increase in home repair do-it-yourselfers over the last few years has led to a number of popular home repair and home renovation shows like Property Brothers and Fixer Upper. This has only led to an increase in sales for big box retail construction supply stores like Lowes that carry a wide variety of home repair products.
Lowes is a massive retail chain store that offers one-stop-shopping for the professional contractor and DIY enthusiast. Lowes stores are essentially large warehouses filled with aisles and aisles of shelving that are stocked to the ceiling with everything anyone would need to perform minor home repairs or new home construction.
Falling Merchandise Accidents
Home repair supply stores like Lowes operate on a self-service model. In order to fit all their products into one store Lowes builds large warehouse type buildings and lines them with rows of huge shelving units. The merchandise is then packed onto these shelving units. Shoppers are allowed to walk through the aisles with shopping carts and take merchandise off the shelves themselves without the assistance of employees. While this model saves Lowes time and space it subjects unsuspecting customers to the risk of falling merchandise.
Lowes Has A Duty to Properly Maintain their Property
All businesses in Massachusetts have a duty to maintain their property in a manner that ensures the safety of any customer that steps foot on the property. Serious injuries can result if Lowes does not take reasonable measures to eliminate known hazardous conditions on the property. In addition to slippery floors and accidents caused by falling merchandise, construction equipment and products are often heavy and dangerous to be around. Therefore, Lowes must take extra precautions so as not to subject customers to unreasonable risks of serious injuries.
Many of the accidents that occur on Lowes’ property can be traced to one or more of the following negligent acts:
- Not training or supervising employees which results in merchandise not being stocked properly on shelving units.
- Allowing wet or slippery substances to remain on the floor or aisles for extended periods of time which exposes customers to slip and fall hazards and injuries.
- Failing to properly clear snow and ice from the parking lot and walkways which also exposes customers to slip and fall hazards and injuries.
- Failing to perform regular maintenance on their rental trucks.
- Parking Lot Backover accidents involving pedestrians.
Most Massachusetts Lowes Accidents involve preventable slip and fall injuries and falling products from shelving units. Other preventable hazards exist inside the store like defective or malfunctioning electronic store doors and negligent forklift operators. We have helped several clients in the past receive fair compensation from this large corporation for medical bills, lost wages, permanent disability and pain and suffering.
Getting Compensation for Your Injuries
In order to bring a successful claim against Lowes for an injury that occurs on their property you must prove that Lowes:
- Knew or should have known the dangerous condition existed on their property;
- Failed to take reasonable steps to fix, repair or limit exposure to the dangerous condition or failed to warn unsuspecting customers; and
- You sustained an injury because Lowes failed to take the proper steps to eliminate the risk.
