While shopping at a Fiesta Mart supermarket, you likely don’t expect to encounter hazards or situations that cause you harm. Yet, accidents are not uncommon in grocery stores. Shoppers can suffer injuries in various ways, such as from unattended spills and lack of proper security measures.
When hazards like these cause injuries, the store can be held responsible for the victim’s medical bills and other damages. If you suffered such injuries at a Fiesta Mart in Allen, Texas, our firm can handle your personal injury case. When you call Trujillo & Sanchez, P.C., an Allen Fiesta Mart accident lawyer is ready to represent you. All prospective clients receive a complimentary consultation.
We Can Seek Compensation for You in Numerous Areas
When you suffer injuries at an Allen business such as Fiesta Mart, you have the right to seek damages in a premises liability case. As long as our accident attorneys can show negligence on the part of the business, we can attempt to win a settlement for you. Your financial recovery may include:
After your injuries, you may need to travel to the hospital in an ambulance. You could spend a significant amount of time in the hospital or require multiple visits with doctors and specialists to work on your recovery. Afterward, you may have to go to physical therapy or to a rehabilitation facility for additional care.
If so, your medical bills could add up quickly. When another party is liable for these injuries, these medical costs can become part of your financial recovery. Our accident lawyers can compile all of your records and work with your doctors to ensure we account for all current and future medical expenses.
If you have to stop working while you recover from your injuries, you could miss out on a significant amount of income. This could cause financial hardship for your family.
You have a right to seek compensation for these lost wages. If our team at Trujillo & Sanchez, P.C., can show that employees at Fiesta Mart could have, but failed, to take action to prevent your injuries, we can seek an award for your lost wages.
Pain and Suffering
The pain and suffering compensation in a personal injury case can be significant. In some cases, it could be as high as seven figures. Still, the actual amount you could recover depends on factors like:
- Pain related to your injuries
- Any reduction you have in your quality of life
- Nightmares or insomnia related to your memories of the accident
- Emotional trauma about the accident
- Disfigurement or disablement from your injuries
- Any inability to perform activities you enjoyed before the accident
After we agree to a negotiated settlement with Fiesta Mart or win a judgment at trial, the case is over. You cannot go back and seek additional awards for new health conditions you may discover later.
For this reason, we will make sure to seek compensation that takes into account any future medical care you may need or any wages you may be unable to earn in the future, all related to how your injuries are lingering.
Understanding How Injury Accidents Happen at Fiesta Mart
In a business such as a grocery store, multiple dangerous situations could arise. Employees should undergo training to recognize these situations so they can prevent or alleviate them.
When they fail to correct such problems, it can cause customers to suffer serious injuries and leave the company liable for damages.
Trip or Slip and Fall
Fiesta Mart employees must constantly watch for dangerous spills, according to company policy discussed in the Mendia v. Fiesta Mart, L.L.C., case. If employees fail to clean spills in a reasonable amount of time or put up a sign warning customers of a slip hazard, our slip and fall lawyers know how to build a case that holds the company accountable.
If we can show that employees failed to deal with a dangerous spill, leading to your injury in a fall, this is a sign of negligence we can use.
When you are taking your groceries to your car in the Fiesta Mart parking lot, you expect to be able to do so safely. If you suffer an assault on the grocery store’s property, this could show negligence on the part of Fiesta Mart due to inadequate security or poor lighting in the parking lot.
The Allen Police Department reported 71 aggravated assaults in 2020, an increase of 40% from 2017. Certainly, not all these assaults occurred in store parking lots. Still, the increase in assaults shows that stores like Fiesta Mart must take their customers’ security seriously.
Struck by Falling Object
In a large grocery store, employees may stack extra product on a high shelf, planning to move it to a more accessible shelf later. However, this can create some potentially dangerous situations for visitors to the store.
If employees fail to stack the boxes safely, they could eventually shift and fall. If they contain heavy jars or cans, you could suffer a significant injury. Employees at Fiesta Mart need proper training for storing items on shelves to ensure guests’ safety.
