Have you been injured in a Home Depot accident? If so, you are not alone. Premises liability/slip and fall accidents are a leading cause of injuries every single year. Since home improvement and warehouse stores like Home Depot are so large, they attract a lot of people to shop there. Often, forklifts are operated during the store hours to reach merchandise that is stacked up high, which can potentially cause a hazard to shoppers.
After 3 people were killed at Home Depot stores within an 8 month time period, this safety issue became more broadcasted. It is the stores duty to make sure there are no dangerous or hazardous conditions that exist inside.
To file a premises liability claim you must be able to prove that:
- Home Depot previously knew about the condition & did nothing to correct it
- Home Depot was the direct cause of the dangerous condition
- Home Depot did not use proper signs to warn customers about the condition
