Home Depot Injury Lawyer in Los Angeles
Home Depot Personal Injury Claims
Home Depot is a popular “big box” home improvement store with over 2,000 stores in the US that sell construction materials, appliances, tools, equipment, and just about anything else required for home projects. Whether you’re needing a nail to hang a picture or flooring to refinish the bathroom, chances are you’ll find it at your local Home Depot.
A trip to Home Depot typically entails a non-eventful shopping experience. Most stores, especially Home Depots in the Los Angeles area, are busy with activity – customers shopping while employees are assisting them or going about their work duties. The majority of the time, customers are 100% safe in the store. Home Depot, like all other retailers, has an obligation to ensure the premises are reasonably safe and to warn customers if any potential dangers are lurking. When they fail to do so and someone gets hurt, they must be held accountable. If you would like to discuss a Home Depot lawsuit with a Home Depot injury expert, call the Law Offices of Jacob O. Partiyeli today.

Unsafe Conditions in Home Depot
Regardless of whether an item fell off the shelf and hit you, an employee on a forklift ran into you, you slipped and fell in a puddle of mop water, or any other scenario where you were injured at Home Depot, retailers are legally required to keep their customers safe. Failure to do so is cause for a lawsuit.
Injuries Can be Painful and Costly
If you were injured at Home Depot, it may have warranted a trip to the ER or hospital. You may have even had to go by ambulance. Your injury may require future doctor visits, physical therapy, and even surgery.
Injuries also cost money due to missed wages for time off work, paying a babysitter to watch your child while you go to a medical appointment, and many other reasons.
It is unreasonable to expect a shopper in Home Depot to bear the weight of medical expenses. It is the responsibility of Home Depot to pay the medical bills.
Pain and suffering are also factors to consider. You went into the building trusting that it was safe. If you found out otherwise through being injured, you may be entitled to a compensation for the physical and even mental suffering you have endured.
