Home Depot: The Company
Home Depot is an American home improvement supply company that sells a wide variety of tools, construction products, and services. The company is centered in Atlanta, Georgia, and was founded in 1978. Today there are locations scattered across the United States, as well as Mexico, China, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Typically Home Depots have high shelving and plenty of staff to assist customers in getting the items they need. However, these shelves can prove to be an incredible hazard for consumers as often they store heavy equipment and supplies that could cause severe injuries if they fall. Home Depot Stores also have plenty of floor space that can be hazardous if proper inspection procedures are neglected. For this reason, Home Depot locations are expected to uphold the highest level of care when ensuring the safety of their customers. Listed below are some injuries that can occur at Home Depot or any other store for that matter:

  • Slip and Falls: often caused by wet floors, torn carpets, poor lighting, and escalator malfunctions
  • Head and Body Injuries: Caused by falling objects, retail displays, out-of-reach objects other similar mishaps
  • Shopping Cart Injuries: falls as a result of a cart tipping over
  • Overcrowding Injuries: as a result of over-crowding hazards (ex: trampling)
  • Parking Lot Injuries: as a result of a cracked or improperly designed parking lot, to remove ice or snow

These are just some of the accidents that can occur at a Home Depot. Regardless of how the situation caused your injuries, if they occurred as a result of the neglect or poor condition of a Home Depot location, then you can file a Home Depot accident or injury lawsuit against the store’s owner or store management. However, the method and process by which you can pursue a claim for compensation differ depending on the circumstances that surround your particular accident.

Slip and Fall Accidents in Home Depot
Slip and fall accidents are most likely to occur at fast food restaurants, then again, that is not to say that they cannot happen at other locations as well. The injuries that a victim can sustain from a slip and fall accident can be incredibly severe. Listed below are some of the damages that an individual can sustain in a slip and fall accident:

  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Hip fractures
  • Back and spinal cord injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Other sprains and fractures

Slip and fall accidents typically occur as a result of a slick floor. However other floor hazards can cause slip or trip and fall accidents. If these floor hazards are not properly fixed or labeled as cautious by the store staff, then it is likely that you’ll be able to file a successful lawsuit. However, if the staff made an effort to warn customers of the potential hazards, then the likelihood of collection compensation for your damages are low. To determine if you have a successful slip and fall accident lawsuit or not, you must first determine the liability of your case. To properly place liability on the store, one of the following must be true:

  • The owner or staff caused the spill or another hazard that caused the injury
  • The owners and staff were already aware of the hazardous floor conditions and did not follow proper protocol to mitigate or warn customers of the dangers.
  • The owners and staff should have been aware of the floor conditions, and any other more ‘reasonable’ person would have made the appropriate actions to repair or clean the floor.

Regardless of the circumstances of your case, it is incredibly important that you seek the assistance of a attorney to guide you through the often times complex process of seeking compensation for your damages.

Falling Merchandise at Home Depot
Home Depot is notorious for storing their merchandise in high shelves. Most of this merchandise is heavy construction and home improvement equipment that is incredibly heavy. In the event that something isn’t properly stocked and falls, the following damages can be life threatening. Listed below is a list of the possible injuries a customer at Home Depot can suffer after a falling merchandise accident:

  • Head Injuries
  • Brain Injuries
  • Spinal Injuries
  • Back & Neck Injuries
  • Shoulder Injuries
  • Knee Injuries
  • Torn Ligaments
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Broken & Fractured Bones
  • Neurological Damage
  • Coma
  • Paralysis

Not only can the physical damages from a falling merchandise accident be debilitating but so can the financial damages from the necessary hospitalization to treat these injuries. Thankfully these damages can be reimbursed through the help of a Home Depot accident claim.

Assault at Home Depot
Sexual assault, assault, and battery are all incidents that one can sue Home Depot for if they occur on the premises. While these events are rare, when they occur it is the Home Depot security to blame. This is especially true when assault occurs by the hand of a Home Depot employee. In order to file a lawsuit surrounding assault at a Home Depot it is incredibly important to understand the differences between assault, battery, and sexual assault.

Assault and Battery can be defined as the varied forms of violence inflicted upon a person. Assault is an act of violence that does not involve any actual contact. This can include things like threats, and a intent to cause harm. Battery, on the other hand, relies on the action of another directly inflicting harm upon a victim. Often times defendants of battery cases claim that they acted in self defense, and it can sometimes be difficult to prove otherwise. For this reason it is highly recommended that you seek representation from a Home Depot Assault Battery attorney.

Sexual Assault is quite similar to Assault and Battery cases as they rely on the negligence of the store’s security policies. Victims of sexual assault can either initiate a civil lawsuit or a criminal lawsuit against the at-fault party. Criminal sexual assault cases can be incredibly devastating to a victim as they are brought to court and asked to relive the experience of their assault in front of a jury of strangers. Criminal sexual assault trials also require a higher burden of proof, called, ‘beyond a reasonable doubt.’ These cases have a lesser chance that the defendant will be convicted. However, victims can also file a civil sexual assault lawsuit which requires a lesser burden of proof, known as ‘preponderance of the evidence.’ Regardless of the situation, sexual assault lawsuits should be pursued with the assistance of a Home Depot sexual assault lawyer, as they can guide you through the process of claiming compensation from Home Depot for your damages.
