Taking pictures and videos of the spot the incident happened is helpful because it stands as proof to show what happened.

  • Report your accident

It is important to inform the store manager about your accident. So that the manager can help file an accident report of the incident. Sometimes, the reason for that slip and fall accident might be as a result of the careless act of the workers or cleaners at the store, so reporting to the manager or store owners increases your chances of getting compensation.

But if you have a personal injury lawyer who can speak and give charges on your behalf, it becomes much easier to have a compensation discussion with the Store.

  • Eyewitness Statements

When you want to determine the value of your case, the kind of injury and the severity of the injury, having an eyewitness around who can put a statement together can also help you to get full compensation.

Common Causes of store injuries

There are  several common causes of store injury, which are:

  • Mechanical door breakdown
  • Liquid spilled on the floor
  • Faulty staircases, elevators, and escalators
  • Jagged shelves and showcases.
  • Sometimes, when it rains heavily, puddles of rainwater can create cracks, holes or other unhealthy features at the store entrance.

Although some persons who have been injured through no fault of their own would be thinking about the possibility of claiming compensation. The store also has its legal professional who can file that case. Due to how big Marshalls store is, some persons see it as a great opportunity to extort money from them by framing different untrue incidents to be used as a medium to getting some compensation values from the company, but with the help of the company's legal adviser, any fraudulent act found would be taken further and sued.

Marshalls store is protected by high-powered insurance agents. Marshalls representatives are concerned with protecting their bottom line after someone gets injured in their stores. So they do everything possible to make sure that the customer who got involved in the slip and fall accident is properly taken care of to avoid the company's name being tampered with. Once the accident is genuine, the representative of Marshalls store will make sure that all due compensations will be carried out.

All retail stores are advised to do everything possible to ensure their customers are safe and free from dangerous conditions that might cause injuries. The stores should be properly checked regularly by the managers or leading employees of the company and ensure that there is a safe environment for any customer that comes into the store to avoid a slip and fall accident or other severe accidents.

 The compensation value of your settlement can vary differently and is dependent on the overall extent of your injuries and the economic costs of your damages which includes your medical bills, the future need for medical care, and your lost wages. The kind of injury and the severity of the injury can also be looked at when determining the value of your case. The level of negligence you can prove will affect the overall value of your case. For example, if you fall because there wasn’t adequate lighting in the parking lot when you left, such cases could be severe and the fault of the store and its management or owner. Depending on the kind of injury you got would determine the value of your compensation.
