T.J. Maxx

T.J. Maxx is one of the popular departmental stores of the United States and is spread over 1000 locations. Bernard Cammarata founded it in 1976, and so the first store opened in Florida.

T.J. Maxx is a departmental discount store that has deals on named brand apparel for both men and women. T.J. Maxx has it all, from men and women clothes to shoes, toys, home products that range from kitchen utensils to furniture, different accessories and beauty products, and more.

As T.J. Maxx caters to a wide variety of customers, there is always hustle and bustle of consumers in the stores. The customers are always trying to score the amazing discount deals and the hurrying employees who keep trying to satisfy the customers. In all this activity, there are a great many changes in slip and fall accidents.

Now in such a vast store, it is easy for the slip and fall to happen due to your neglect. But it is also possible that the accident occurred due to their negligence, which makes it a premises liability case.

T.J. Maxx stores are most crowded, and the inventory of the stores keeps changing that might cause the employees not to have enough time to react to the hazardous conditions. Thus, the chances of the injury being the stores' fault are pretty high.

Common Hazards that can lead to slip and fall

As slip and fall, cases are a fairly common occurrence across Florida. Here are a few instances that might lead to the slip and fall injury:

  • As T.J. Maxx has a wide variety of products including oils, perfumes, etc. these products can leak or break causing conditions that could lead to a slip and fall injury
  • Rains and stormy weather can lead to the creation of puddles, thus leading to accidents.
  • As the stores are full of activity, they require maintenance. If the floors are recently cleaned and no warning is displayed, it could lead to the injury.
  • Messy customers can leave debris on the aisles and more, but as the employees must make the premises hazard-free, if you suffer a fall due to the debris, still the premises will be liable.

Immediate hazard control is one of the primary rules in Florida for property owners. So any injury that was caused by the neglect of the company will make them liable for compensation.

Injuries that can be sustained during a slip and fall

Many injuries can be sustained during a slip and fall accident. A few of them are:

  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Brain damage
  • Paralysis
  • Trauma

If the injuries sustained, cause you severe financial strain, it's necessary that you file a case to receive the compensation for it. Your case will determine what compensation will you be entitled to. You could be eligible to get compensation for:

  • The medical expenses including surgeries and all kinds of medication
  • Physical therapy and complex health care procedures
  • The wages you lost from your work, even potential earning
  • Trauma and mental suffering, like pain and fright

A slip and fall accident can badly impact your life as a whole, and you must try to get the compensation you deserve.

T.J. Maxx is a huge department store, and negligence chances are high if you suffered an injury due to their negligence. It’s essential that you file a case. T.J. Maxx already has several claims against them, including a slip and fall case.

In 2005 a woman named Felicity claimed she suffered a slip and fall due to a substance on the floor that the employees failed to clean. She suffered financial strain as the accident caused her serious injury to her back and shoulder.

How to handle if you are in a slip and fall accident?

Slip and fall cases thus tend to be very tricky to handle. You might be sure that you have sufficient proof against them to win the personal injury claim, but then comes the comparative negligence rule.

The defendant can easily claim that the plaintiff is at fault as they failed to see the warning sign or that they were walking in the wrong shoes, etc.

This leads to the fact that the blame of the fault becomes shared, and you don't receive the compensation you deserved.

You must hire experienced personal injury lawyers so that they can help you detect the points that you have missed. They can guide you and tell you the probability of your claim, whether you will win or lose.

Their professional guidance can help you through the long process, save time, and provide tactics that can help you in your case.
