Injuries at Home Depot
Home Depot operates thousands of stores in the United States and attracts millions of customers annually, as they are one of the biggest, most well-known retailers of home improvement and construction materials in the country. Home Depot sells a number of potentially dangerous products, and their warehouse-style outlet stores also create an opportunity for customers to be injured within their walls. If you believe that a negligent employee or manager was responsible for an injury you sustained at a Home Depot, call the professional personal injury attorneys at Altman & Altman LLP today.
Injuries can happen at Home Depot in many ways. Perhaps an employee didn’t mop a floor during a rainstorm, leaving a slippery spot in an area of high foot traffic and leading to a slip-and-fall injury made all the worse by the fact that Home Depot uses concrete for all their flooring. Such an injury can lead to a broken hip, torn tendons in the knee or other seriously debilitating injuries.
Perhaps a worker is restocking a high shelf with the aid of a forklift and slips on the controls, causing a payload to fall from a great height and landing on a customer below. Such an incident can lead to a crushing injury, which may result in serious injuries to the spinal column or other area of the skeleton.Proving negligence
In order to prove that Home Depot is at fault for an injury which resulted from being in one of their stores, it must be proven that either an employee or a manager responsible for employees was negligent in their duties to keep their customers safe. Proving this may be difficult, but your chances of doing so in a civil case are much higher when you have an experienced professional injury team on your side.
At Altman & Altman LLP, we have over 50 years of experience proving negligence in civil matters, and can take the issue into the courtroom if necessary. We will hold negligent employees who harm innocent customers accountable for their mistakes, and help you earn financial compensation to help ease your pain and suffering.
We understand that injuries may result in costly medical expenses and time missed from work, both of which may lead to highly stressful situations where you worry about how you’ll pay your bills or support yourself and your family.
