How the Law Offices of Jay S. Knispel Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help With a Target Store Claim 

Target employees are friendly and helpful. However, they are not the people you deal with if you are injured in a Target store. Instead, you deal with an impersonal corporation and its insurance provider. 

Neither company is interested in paying large settlements. Instead, the companies and their defense lawyers work to minimize the value of your personal injury claim if they do not deny it first. Our legal team at the Law Offices of Jay S. Knispel Personal Injury Lawyers fights to get you the money you deserve.

  • Research the store’s history of accidents and injuries
  • Obtain information about safety violations 
  • Fight back against allegations of failing to mitigate damages and contributory fault
  • Negotiate a fair settlement figure
  • File a lawsuit and argue the case in court if Target refuses to settle for a fair amount

Common Causes of Target Store Accidents in New York 

Millions of people shop at Target stores. Therefore, the stores must take great care to maintain the premises in a safe condition to avoid falls and other accidents.

Common causes of accidents and injuries in Target stores include:

  • Obstacles, merchandise, and other items left in the aisles
  • Poorly stocked shelves that cause items to fall
  • Slippery or wet floors
  • Poorly maintained parking lots and sidewalks
  • Negligent security 
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Snow and ice on sidewalks
  • Failing to place mats and warning signs for wet floors
  • Damaged flooring
  • Failing to clean up spilled products
  • Sharp edges on racks and shelves

The store is liable if it knew or should have known about a dangerous condition and failed to correct it or provide adequate warnings. Because every inch of a Target store is under surveillance, there is likely a video of your accident. Contact us now so that we can demand that the store preserve the video instead of erasing it or recording over it.

What Should I Do After a Fall or Injury at a New York Target Store?

If you are hurt in a New York Target store, the following steps can help protect your right to compensation for damages:

Document the Accident Scene

Take pictures and make a video of the accident scene. Store managers will work quickly to correct the hazard once it is reported. Ask eyewitnesses to give you their names and contact information.

Report the Accident

Locate a store employee or ask someone to find an employee. Ask the employee to get the manager because you have been injured. 

Avoid admitting fault or wrongdoing when telling the manager that you fell or were injured. Never apologize or say you are sorry for causing a problem or inconvenience.

Seek Medical Treatment 

Request emergency medical services if necessary and go to the emergency room. Do not say that you are not injured or that you are “fine” or “okay” at the store. Instead, state that you will see a doctor immediately and then do so.
