What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Shopping: A Risky Business

Around the holidays, stores and shopping malls can begin to feel like a second home. People spend more time and money during the end-of-year frenzy than in any other part of the year. Stuffing stores with stressed shoppers seeking stocking stuffers creates a dangerous setting, and you don’t have to do anything more than turn on a television to discover startling displays of violence, negligence, and indifference that can result in serious injury or fatality.

At a Toys ‘R’ Us in Palm Desert, California, two armed customers shot and killed each other during the holiday shopping rush. Five people were tragically killed at a Lane Bryant store near Chicago. From 2002-2005, police received more than 2000 calls from a single Wal-Mart store less than 100 miles from Jacksonville, FL. A Wal-Mart in New York was made infamous for the Black Friday trampling death of a seasonal employee. You may go to stores everyday with the impression that part of their aim is to ensure your safety, but as these incidents clearly demonstrate, the reality is that your wellbeing is not issue number one for stores and shopping malls.

The owners and operators of retail establishments possess an ethical, legal, and moral responsibility to make customers as safe and secure as reasonably possible while they are shopping and on the premises. In today’s economy, though, they may be more inclined to cut corners than ever, and necessary repairs may get cut so that the power doesn’t. As a direct consequence of this mistaken prioritization, unsuspecting shoppers are more likely to face undue hazards. When someone suffers an injury in a store or shopping mall, they should speak with a knowledgeable premises liability lawyer.
