Avoid A Slip And Fall During Your Holiday Shopping

The holidays are here, which means that shoppers will be filling our roadways, trying to get to the next great sale. We’re used to this activity during this time of year. However, during all of your shopping adventures, as your St. Louis personal injury attorney, we want to caution you to be very aware of your surroundings to avoid a slip and fall.

Slips and falls can happen anywhere. During the holidays, retail businesses are very busy, and they’re trying to serve their customers as quickly as possible. That can result in walkways and aisles that aren’t as clean or as dry as they should be. As you’re shopping, keep an eye out for any hazardous areas that could cause you to slip and fall.

If you do find a spill or a wet floor, and you have an accident, it’s important for you to take some steps to ensure your own safety, and to make sure you’re protected, legally:

  • Contact the store manager immediately to let them know about the accident.
  • Fill out the appropriate reports with the manager or store employee so that your accident is properly documented.
  • Get medical attention, if necessary.
  • Contact your St. Louis personal injury attorney if you do have a slip and fall. We’re here to help you, and we’ll fight hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
