Retail Store Accidents Attorney In Delaware

Delaware, offering tax free shopping, is a very popular state for tourists. Being a tax free state not only do Delaware residents shop here but people from neighboring states make frequent trips here to take advantage of Delaware’s tax free shopping. Many even revolve their entire vacations around Delaware’s many outlet malls in lower Delaware. For the most part, people do their shopping and return home without any problems. However, sometimes one can be involved in an accident in the store, or on its property such as the parking lot. Being hurt or injured while on someone else’s property is a very common aspect of personal injury law called Premises Liability Law.

Delaware law as to injury in commercial settings such as a grocery store mall or shopping center provides that a possessor of property who invites others onto his property to conduct business must exercise due care to keep his property in a reasonably safe condition and warn of any unreasonable risks which he knows about, or with the exercise of reasonable care would have known about, and which the other would not be expected to discover for himself.

The owner operator has a heightened duty to customers it invites onto the property.

The owner of a store must inspect the aisles and shelves constantly to be sure the area is safe. Usually the store will have an employee travel up and down the aisles to clean any spill or item which may have fallen. Sometimes a pallet of food or soda will fall on a customer as they pass by. Usually, the store will have a video camera to record such injuries and we can often obtain that video if you contact us very quickly. Grocery stores and other retailer also have an extra duty because they want you to look at their shelves and their items for sale. They place bright signs and otherwise persuade you to look at the sale sign and not at the floor in front of you.

Sometimes the injury can be the result of an assault in the parking lot where there is no security. If the store knows or should know of a security problem or crime in the area they have a duty to provide proper protection to you as their invitee.
