Toys R Us: The Company
Toys R Us is one of the largest toy store chains in the United States. Founded in 1948 in Wayne, New Jersey, Toys R Us, owns or licenses 866 Toys R Us and Babies R Us stores in the United States, Puerto Rico, more than 750 international stores and more than 245 licensed stories in 37 countries and jurisdictions. The toy company earned its fame for housing a large supply and variety of toys in a warehouse-like setting. This means that products are set on high shelves and in some instances customers may need staff assistance to retrieve said products. However, this large space and mass product stock make Toys R Us a somewhat hazardous environment. Some accidents that can occur at a Toys R Us are listed as follows:

  • Falling merchandise
  • Store Shelf Collapse
  • Trip and Fall Accidents
  • Slip and Fall Accidents

These are just some of the accidents that can occur at a Toys R Us, and as such, each location is responsible for mitigating the risk of these accidents occur. However, this is not always the case, as mistakes happen, and procedures aren’t always followed. When this is the case, and a customer suffers injury as a result of the negligence or misconduct of a Toys R Us owner or staff that customer has every right to retain an experienced attorney to help them sue Toys R Us for the damages.

Toys R Us Falling Merchandise and Shelf Collapse Accidents
At Toys R Us the products are often held on high shelving that can fall if not properly maintained. Falling merchandise can result in some serious head injuries, like brain contusions, concussions, and more severe traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). If merchandise at a Toys R Us has ever fallen on your head, you may be eligible to file a claim for compensation from the Toys R Us Company. This is also true for customers that have had a shelf collapse and injured them. Toys R Us staff and owners are expected to provide a safe and secure environment for their shoppers. If this promise is ever breached, they could face legal consequences as a result. You could enlist the assistance of a qualified attorney with expertise in Toys R Us injury lawsuits. Some common brain injuries that can arise from a case of falling merchandise are listed as follows:

  • Concussion: Concussions are caused when the brain receives trauma from a direct or indirect impact or a sudden momentum change. In a concussion, the blood vessels in the brain can stretch, and cranial nerves can become damaged. Post-concussion syndrome can arise long after the date of the injury and can cause serious symptoms to continue for weeks, months, or years after the date of the injury.
  • Contusion: Contusions can be resulting from direct impact to the head. A contusion is a bleeding in the brain, and in severe cases may need to be removed through surgery. Contusions also adversely affect the intracranial pressure within the brain which can be just as dangerous.
  • Coup-Contrecoup: These injuries are a kind of contusion wherein the damage occurs at the site of impact and on the opposite end of the brain where the impact occurred. This happens when the force of the impact is great enough to both cause a contusion at the site of the impact but also to make the brain slam into the opposite side of the skull causing another contusion
  • Diffuse Axonal: These type of brain injuries can be caused by a shaking or a strong rotation of the head (such as Shaken Baby Syndrome). This injury occurs when the sudden movements cause tearing in the brain’s structure. Diffuse Axonal brain injuries can produce temporary or permanent widespread brain damage, coma, or even death.

Toys R Us Slip (Trip) and Fall Accidents
Slip (trip) and fall accidents can be incredibly damaging to those who have to experience them. The injuries can range from minor bumps and bruises to more severe damages that can last a lifetime. These accidents can occur whenever there are hazardous floor conditions, and the place of business can be held liable if they lacked proper warning signs or failed to repair the problem in a sufficient amount of time. Some common causes of slip and fall accidents at a Toys R Us are listed below:

  • Wet Floors
  • Slippery Floors
  • Lack of Warning Signs
  • Loose Wiring
  • Tripping over toy on the floor
  • Cluttered Floors
  • Falling on Toys on the ground
  • Parking lot potholes
  • Poorly constructed staircases
  • Torn Carpeting
  • Loose Floorboards

These are just some of the common causes of a slip and fall accident at a Toys R Us. However, these accidents can occur whenever a floor or the store conditions aren’t properly maintained. If you slipped and fell on the floor you could find, yourself facing a multitude of physical damages. These injuries can be quite severe as the force of impact that comes with falling can put a lot of strain and pressure on parts of the body. Thankfully, with the help of an accomplished attorney who has experience in Toys R Us slip and fall cases, you could find some of these damages compensated to you. Some of the common injuries caused by slip and fall accidents are as follows:

  • Head Injuries: Head injuries can range from minor contusions (or brain bruising) to more severe traumatic brain injuries or TBIs. Some TBIs can cause ongoing seizures, mood changes, cognitive impairment and other debilitating symptoms. In most cases, head injuries require emergency room treatment, or hospitalization and in more severe cases can result in death.
  • Hip Fractures: Hip fractures often require surgery and extended hospitalization. In some more serious cases, surgery may be necessary to implant an artificial hip. Out of every five hip fracture patients, one of them dies due to their injuries
  • Back and Spinal Cord Injuries: Injury to the spinal cord can lead to permanent paralysis, temporary paralysis and other severe neurological and sensory impairments
  • Shoulder Injuries: slip (trip) and fall accidents can result in shoulder dislocations or more severe forms of shoulder injuries called brachial plexus injuries. The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that connect the shoulder, arm, and hand to the spinal cord. These injuries are often treated with surgery followed by extensive physical therapy
  • Sprains and Fractures: The force of slipping and falling can cause minor to severe bone injuries. In some cases, the impact of the ground could cause minor sprains, in others; it could cause debilitating bone breakage that may result in temporary disability. Some of the common fractures that victims suffer include hip, spine, forearm, leg, ankle, pelvis, upper arm and hand.

Filing a Lawsuit Against Toys R Us
Under the legal concept, premises liability, every store or property owner is expected to uphold the safety and security of their patrons. At any point that this promise of safety is disregarded and results in an injury that property or store owner could face the legal consequences of an injury lawsuit. When customers are injured as a result of this negligence, they have every right to seek an expert attorney with experience handling Toys R Us accident claims to help them file a lawsuit. However, like all personal injury lawsuits, there are some requirements that should be taken into account before moving forward with your lawsuit.

One of the key aspects of every case is the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for a case is the period in which a victim can bring their case to court. If this statute is ignored, the victim could find their case dismissed from court entirely. The statute of limitations vary from state to state, so it is important that you find a legal expert learned about the laws that influence your state. However, for your reference, in the state of California, a plaintiff with a personal injury case has two years to bring their case to court.

Another major requirement to a successful lawsuit is a claim of negligence. To prove that the Toys R Us owner and staff were responsible for your damages, you must be able to prove that their negligent actions led to your injuries. A claim of negligence requires that you prove the following:

  • Duty: The plaintiff (injured or damaged party) must be able to show that the defendant (property owner and staff) owed a legal duty to the plaintiff under the particular circumstances of the case.
  • Breach: The plaintiff must be able to show that the defendant breached said legal duty through specific actions or failing to act appropriately
  • Causation: The plaintiff must be able to show that the defendant’s actions or lack thereof caused the plaintiff’s injuries
  • Damages: The plaintiff must be able to show that they endured some specific damages. This can usually be shown through the presentation of medical records, a loss of wages, or a loss of potential income.

When you file a lawsuit against any company, it is important to be aware of the fact that they are likely to have the resources to employ a whole host of legal experts to dispute your claim. For this reason, if you hope to accomplish a positive outcome for your case it is in your best interest that you seek assistance from an attorney with expertise in fighting big companies like Toys R Us.
