Costco Accident & Injury Lawyer
- October 4, 2017
Costco is one of America’s largest big box retailers. They’ve gained a reputation for their 1985 priced hot dogs, membership deals, and above average pay for retail workers. Despite all of these positive things, some Costco retail locations may behave or fail to act in a way that is consistent with caring about consumer well-being. For example, mopping a floor and leaving it slippery may result in a painful and costly slip and fall accident. Another frequent type of accident at Cosco is when things are stacked improperly and actually fall on customers while they’re shopping.
These accidents have some to do with the layout of Costco. Unlike most other stores, Costco loves to keep its items on palettes and often stacks their items sky high. While this is visually appealing, there are some cases where this becomes very dangerous is procedures aren’t properly followed by the employees. Employees, too, can work in dangerous conditions to their their frequent use of equipment such as forklifts during their workday. Employees and customers alike have brought lawsuits against Costco precisely for the reason that sometimes the conditions in the store can become dangerous when someone fails to follow procedure.
This isn’t a good reason not to shop at Costco. In fact, there’s nothing about Costco that makes it any more dangerous than any other retail location. However, it’s important to hold Costco responsible when their employees or administrators fail to make the store safe for their many shoppers. Crowded conditions in Costco can sometimes make for an accident just waiting to happen. It’s the job of every good accident lawyer to see what part Costco might have played in any accident that happens in their store.
The store itself is negligent when it fails to secure its store shelves and make everything safe for its customers.
