You may love to shop at Home Depot because of the ability to find such a wide range of items. Perhaps you appreciate the industrial design of the stores, making it feel like a huge warehouse.
Unfortunately, this building design potentially leads to injury accidents for patrons. With heavy items for sale, and with some of those items on high shelves, you could suffer an injury at the store through no fault of your own. Count on our Allen Home Depot accident lawyer to seek the damages you deserve.
The personal injury lawyers at Trujillo & Sanchez, P.C. often hear from prospective clients who are unsure whether they actually have grounds to seek damages against a business like Home Depot. To win damages for you, we need to prove that a few things happened to you.
We Will Investigate Exactly What Happened
Showing that all three of these items exist in your case is not as easy as it may sound. Even if you testify that your accident was preventable, Home Depot’s insurance adjusters or lawyers are sure to contradict your testimony, accusing you of exaggerating or outright lying.
This can be extremely frustrating. You should not have to cut through mountains of red tape to receive the payments you deserve. Our Home Depot accident lawyers in Allen, Texas will present the facts on your behalf to show why you are telling the truth.
Without proving that negligence on the part of Home Depot or its employees occurred in your accident, we cannot win a judgment for you. Here are some of the most common acts of negligence that occur in cases like this.
Home Depot Employees Must Receive Proper Training
To keep both fellow employees and patrons safe, employees must follow Home Depot’s safety checklist. It provides standards to follow to help people avoid falls or to stow items properly.
Employees must receive the proper training on how to follow all of Home Depot’s safety guidelines. Having an inexperienced employee stack boxes on a high store shelf could result in an error that causes the boxes to fall on your head as you are walking past them. This is a sign of negligence.
Employees Must Follow Home Depot’s Drug Policies
As part of Home Depot’s Code of Conduct, the company does not allow employees to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs while working. If the business fails to catch an employee violating this rule, though, it could lead to injuries for you.
Should an employee under the influence of drugs or alcohol strike you with a forklift, you could suffer life-altering injuries. Home Depot did not protect your well-being by preventing this incapacitated employee from operating dangerous machinery, showing negligence.
Home Depot Must Keep Its Property Safe
Home Depot carries so much merchandise that not all of it fits neatly on shelves. If you tripped over a box or product left in a common walkway or that spilled out of a store display, you could fall and suffer serious injuries.
To show that the property conditions were unsafe, we may need to ask Home Depot to give us surveillance video. It is important we make this request very quickly after your accident before Home Depot erases it.
We always keep the goals of our clients at the heart of every step we take. Unlike some other premises liability or slip and fall accident law firms, we take whatever time is necessary to fully learn about them and their families. We do not rush our clients in and out the door.
