Store Liability for Kohl’s Slip and Fall Accidents
Is Kohl’s liable for customers falling on the ground? According to the policy of premise liability, stores have a duty to take reasonable care in preventing shopper injuries. Exercising reasonable care includes cleaning restroom floors, keeping aisles free of obstructions, making sure weather mats are properly placed in doorways, and routinely inspecting and repairing sidewalks and parking lots. What happens if store managers and employees do not take reasonable care? If stores are not properly maintained, innocent customers can be victimized by these hazards and become injured. If a shopper’s injury is caused by the store’s managers and employees inability to exercise their duty of keeping the store free of hazards, the store could be found negligent. Negligence consists of four elements: duty, breach, cause, and harm.

Risks You Might Encounter in Kohl’s
When you step into Kohl’s, you likely step in with only your shopping list in mind. You know where you are headed and you know what you are looking for. Do you stop to think about the possibility of not being able to complete your shopping list? The thought of being involved in a slip and fall at a Kohl’s store likely never crosses your mind. If you pay attention to detail, you might notice if a store that is usually in perfect condition seems out of order one day. However, you might not consider the risks of any disorderly conditions. Here are a few of the different risks you might encounter:

  • Store restrooms—customers might experience slip and falls in Kohl’s store bathrooms. The floor around toilets and sinks can become slippery due to any spills or leaks. If store management or employees do not constantly clean the floors, customers can have an accident.
  • Parking lots and sidewalks—shoppers might suffer slip and falls in Kohl’s parking lots and sidewalks when store management and employees fail to keep up with repairs. The pavement on parking lots and sidewalks can crack, become uneven, or form potholes—which can all cause someone to fall.
  • Entrances and exits—customers might experience slip and falls at Kohl’s entrances and exits when weather mats are misplaced or missing altogether.
  • Home department—shoppers can have slip and falls in Kohl’s’s home and housewares department if any items fall from shelves or displays.
  • Electronic departments—slip and falls in Kohl’s’s electronics departments are usually caused by the display items. Televisions and audio systems on display can sometimes require electrical extension cords to be exposed around the display. The cords could cause a customer to trip and fall.

Slips and falls near food vendors inside Kohl’s and slip and falls in Kohl’s’s grocery section can also affect unsuspecting shoppers. As you can see, there are many risks throughout stores like Kohl’s. If you were the victim of a slip and fall in Kohl’s, you must file Kohl’s personal injury claims.

What Should You Do?
If you experience slipping and falling on the floor, what should you do to ensure you can file a claim? Taking the appropriate actions after Kohl’s slip and fall accidents can help the process of filing your slip and fall lawsuit. So, what do you have to do? If you slip and fall on the ground, you must ensure that an employee or a store manager acknowledges your accident and rights a report. If managers and employees do not know you suffered an accident in their store, they cannot help you in any way. You should request a copy of the accident report. If you have a mobile device with a camera feature, you should take pictures of the scene of your accident. Make sure the cause of your accident is clear in the pictures. For example, if you slipped on water in Kohl’s bathrooms or tripped on uneven concrete in Kohl’s parking lots and sidewalks, the water and the uneven concrete should be clear in the pictures you take. If there were any witnesses to your accident, you should ask to take down their information for future reference. Your injuries might prevent you from doing any of this yourself; if that is the case, ask someone to help you. As soon as you are given medical care, you must begin recording all of the medical expenses associated with your injury.

You should immediately contact a law firm with attorneys experienced in Kohl’s slip and falls. Your attorney will evaluate your case and, with the evidence, you present—will begin the process towards a slip and fall lawsuit.
