Brian White | April 17, 2018 | Slip and Fall
Attorney Brian White helps victims of slip and fall injuries get the compensation they deserve, even when going up against Fortune 500 companies such as Lowe’s. He has built a track record of 99% success in getting clients compensation by relentlessly preparing and following up on every detail.
Lowe’s is one of the largest home improvement warehouse stores in America, helping do-it-yourselfers and professional contractors get the materials they need for many kinds of home renovation projects. Lowe’s operates more than 2,300 stores, including at least eight in Houston alone. If an accident at Lowe’s leaves you with injuries, Brian White is the slip and fall attorney you need.
Dangerous Potential Hazards at Lowe’s
One of the more popular aisles for Lowe’s customers is the paint section, where homeowners can choose from myriad colors. However, when someone drops or knocks over a paint can, slick liquids can spill everywhere. You may think you couldn’t miss seeing paint spilled on the floor, but a leak just around a corner or under a shelf can catch shoppers unaware. When store employees neglect to address the situation in a timely manner, shoppers can slip and fall.
Other liquids, cleaning products, and bottles of water stored there create potentially slippery conditions when spilled. Lowe’s employees often mop the floors and if they negligently forget to put out a sign warning of the wet floor, you can find yourself slipping and falling.
A leaky roof left unrepaired can lead to slick floors and dangerous conditions for shoppers, as well. Lowe’s has a responsibility to ensure its floors are reasonably safe from slip or trip hazards that could cause serious injuries.
Proving Your Case
Immediately after falling, you should notify a Lowe’s employee of your injury and ask him or her to call for medical help. The more evidence you have to prove your case, the more likely you are to receive compensation you deserve. The actions you take in the minutes after your fall can make a great deal of difference in the compensation you receive.
If possible, take photos of the accident scene and the conditions that caused your fall. Lowe’s employees may naturally attempt to clean up any spills or trip hazards soon after your accident, and your photos may be the best evidence you have of the problem that caused your fall.
Try to get the contact information of anyone who may have witnessed your accident. Trying to find key witnesses later can be difficult if not impossible, but their testimony can help establish the facts of your claim.
While waiting on medical help to arrive, try not to discuss what happened to you other than to inform Lowe’s employees that you slipped and are hurt. If a store manager wants to get a statement from you or asks you to write down what happened, it is best to simply assert that you are hurt and cannot provide a statement at this time. In the trauma of your injury, you may inadvertently say something that Lowe’s could use against you to deny your claim.
Protect Your Rights
Having attorney Brian White on your side helps protect you from a large corporation like Lowe’s and their insurance company taking advantage of you. Brian White helps get slip and fall victims the compensation they need for expensive medical bills and lost wages due to missed time at work.
Pursuing the claim on your own may lead to having your claim denied or receiving only a small settlement check that leaves you with medical expenses long after the settlement money has run out.
