Trip and Falls – Improper Displays

Trip and falls can lead to serious injuries. A store that opens its doors to the public is under a duty to keep their store in a reasonably safe condition. Sometimes, stores improperly display goods for sale, and shoppers trip and fall over the displays, suffering injuries. The National Safety Council’s Accident Prevention Manual for Business & Industry states that floor displays should be at least 3 feet tall so they are visible and are not a tripping hazard. Some insurance companies recommend that stores re-stock displays so that they are never lower than 3 feet tall. Coloration of displays should also contrast sharply with the surrounding floor area and walkway so that they can be easily seen. This recommendation is made because studies show that shoppers usually are preoccupied with viewing the products for sale around them rather than looking at the floor in front of them. If you have suffered a trip and fall at a store and suffered injuries, contact Caldwell Law Group now to discuss what rights you may have.
