Shopping injuries and a retailer's liability for losses

After filling themselves with good food and good times with friends and family, some Texans may have chosen to partake in a post-Thanksgiving tradition: Black Friday shopping. Retailers throughout the nation opened their doors in the late hours of Thanksgiving Thursday or the early hours of the following Friday to offer shoppers deals on goods for the holiday season. While most shoppers escaped their retail adventures unscathed, some undoubtedly suffered injuries in the crush of holiday commerce.

What must be proven to prevail on a wrongful death claim?

When a person dies due to the negligence of another individual, then the victim's death may be considered wrongful. Although a party who has passed away cannot pursue their losses, many jurisdictions recognize wrongful death claims that the survivors of the decedent may use to seek compensation for the losses they endured due to their loved one's demise. Readers are reminded, though, that they must seek their own legal advice as this post provides general information only.

Falls are a common premises liability injury

Trips, slips and falls can happen practically anywhere. In some cases, it may be the fault of a distracted Texan who steps on their own feet and causes their own quick trip to the floor. In many cases, though, it is the fault of others who fail to maintain their premises in safe order that causes innocent individuals to suffer serious and sometimes life-threatening injuries as a result of their falls. The remainder of this post will introduce some of the ways that dangerous premises can present hazards to individuals and how falls may result from peoples' encounters with those dangers.
