Target Accidents

Miami Lawyers Assisting Victims Injured in Slip and Falls

Many South Florida residents visit Target stores frequently. As one of the largest retailers in the area, Target is a place patrons shop not only for bedding, toys, and electronics, but also for weekly groceries. Because these stores encompass such large spaces, including back stock rooms, parking lots, bathrooms, and stairwells, the potential for injuries to customers is also large, especially when employees and others don’t take reasonable actions to prevent harm. The Miami slip and fall attorneys at the Law Offices of Robert Dixon help victims injured by negligence while visiting a Target store pursue the proper legal action against those responsible. Robert Dixon and his staff will examine all video surveillance of your incident, as well as review evidence of a store’s business practices to determine exactly what circumstances led to your injuries and work tirelessly to help you pursue the compensation you’re entitled to. Our firm serves clients across South Florida, including in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties, who have been injured by a negligent property owner or operator. If you, or someone you love, has sustained an injury while shopping at a Target store, please contact our office today to schedule a free, no obligation consultation to learn more about your legal rights and options.

Factors Involved in Causing Target Accident Injuries

Target Corporation is the second-largest retailer in the country, second only to Walmart, with over 1700 stores in the United States. These massive stores sell a variety of merchandise that includes groceries, clothes, cosmetics, toys, bedding, and electronics. They also have large parking lots to accommodate their clientele. With so many departments and aisles, customers can get injured for a variety of reasons, many of which indicate negligence. Some common causes of injuries that could potentially be sustained in a Target accident include:

  • Slip and fall accidents from spills that have not been cleaned, or mopped areas without adequate signage.
  • Merchandise falling from shelves due to improper stocking practices.
  • Lack of proper lighting in parking lots or other dark areas at night.
  • Inadequate security.
  • Broken steps or stairwell railings.

These accidents can lead to serious injuries for victims such as broken bones or fractures, ankle and wrist sprains, as well as back and neck injuries. When property owners fail to keep premises adequately safe for customers, they should be held accountable, and an experienced injury lawyer can help.

Responsibility for Target Accidents

Business owners must use reasonable care in maintaining a property’s safety for patrons. This duty extends to operators and employees of these stores as well. When a customer gets injured, he or she may have a premises liability claim against a responsible party. To succeed on such claims, a victim must establish that a defendant owner or operator knew, or should have known, about a dangerous or defective condition, but failed to take reasonable measures to remedy it, or warn others of its existence. For instance, if there is a leak causing water to pool, or if an employee has just mopped but does not place a ‘Wet Floor’ sign in the area, and a customer slips and falls, the store can potentially be held accountable. Once liability is shown, injured victims can receive compensation for past and future medical costs, loss of income, diminished earning capacity, as well as pain and suffering.
