Retail Store Accidents

You have rights. We will protect them.

Were you injured in retail store accident?

When you go shopping, you do not expect to end up in the hospital. But that happens to many people in Florida, all because of tripping on a box that should not have been there, or slipping on a wet floor that should have been dry.

If this describes what happened to you, call the experienced retail store accident lawyers at Marten | Chiappetta in Lake Worth.

How Insurance Companies Win Their Cases

Here are some of the techniques that an attorney for an insurance company will use to win his or her case:

  • Casting doubt on the integrity of the injured person
  • Shifting responsibility for the fall to the injured person
  • Using prior injuries as evidence against the injured person
  • Minimizing or refuting the severity of injuries and their long-term effects
  • Minimizing or refuting the financial implications of the injury
  • Offering settlements worth only a fraction of the injured person’s damages

​This is just a small sample of how insurance defense attorneys will attack your case. But by having an experienced slip and fall injury lawyer who also has a deep understanding of the other side gives you an insider’s edge.

If you have slipped or tripped and fallen in a retail store or other place of business, you would be wise to have the insider’s edge. Contact Marten | Chiappetta by calling 561-424-7300 or going online to schedule your free initial consultation.

Helping You Get What You Deserve

When an owner, manager or staff member of a retail store has not kept the premises safe and free from hazards for patrons, than they should be held accountable for their negligence.

Our attorneys will thoroughly investigate your claim, not just to find out who is responsible, but also by what degree they are responsible. This investigation often includes talking with your doctor or other medical professional who will help determine the exact way your injuries were caused, evaluate your present medical condition and project your future health.

The attorneys at Marten | Chiappetta will use this information as a basis for your claim. Whether we end up at the negotiating table or in the courtroom, we will ensure you receive all the compensation—lost wages, medical costs and money for pain and suffering—that you are entitled to receive for your retail store injury.

Defending Your Rights: At No Cost To You, Unless You Win

The attorneys of Marten | Chiappetta will work on your case on a contingency basis. In other words, our pay depends—is “contingent”—upon our winning for you. Until we either win a negotiated settlement or an award in court, you do not owe us any attorney fee.

Throughout the entire legal process, we provide you personalized attention and maximized availability. Your case is treated as individually as you are. We answer your questions and concerns promptly.
