Man suffers back injury in slip and fall accident

Pennsylvania consumers should be able to feel safe when shopping in stores without worry of being injured. However, many business owners, managers or employees are not always responsible and may allow situations to develop that put shoppers in harm's way. When this happens, it is reasonable for people to seek compensation.

One man today is doing just this. According to reports, he was shopping at a Dollar Tree Store on New Year's Eve two years ago. As he went through the store, he fell after coming to a portion of the floor that was slippery. His back was injured in the fall. It was discovered that some laundry soap or detergent was the substance on the floor that led to the dangerous conditions.

The man is now seeking more than $75,000 in compensation from Dollar Tree Stores, Inc. and other defendants. Two other companies are included in the lawsuit for their roles in manufacturing, packaging and selling the product to the store. The lawsuit seeks damages for loss of consortium, liability and negligence on the part of the three named defendants.

When stores fail to keep the interior or exterior of their places of business safe for shoppers, it is only fair that compensation be pursued. People who have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident in a store, on a walkway or in a parking lot may wish to talk with an attorney to understand how they may be able to be compensated.
