Can H-E-B Be Held Liable For Your Injuries?
Grocery store managers usually do their best to resolve hazards as soon as they arise. However, a slip and fall hazard can remain unresolved and customers end up getting hurt.
There are plenty of ways you can hold H-E-B liable for a slip and fall accident, some of these ways include:
- Employee negligence
- Lack of safety hazards
- Inadequate maintenance
Under Texas law, landowners and property managers are obligated to perform routine inspections of the properties they own or manage in order to be aware of any hazards or defects. Furthermore, they are also obligated to warn the customers of any hazards that have been brought to their attention by employees or their own inspections. They must also ensure the safety of their customers before any injuries occur.
Failure to abide by these precautions can hold an H-E-B store liable for your injuries.
For example, if H-E-B did not have adequate lighting, this can hold a significant safety hazard. If you slip and fall because you were not able to see well then the courts can find the H-E-B store responsible for your injuries.
In order to have a successful premises liability claim, you must prove that H-E-B was negligent and knew or should have known about the dangerous condition that caused your injuries.
How To Prove H-E-B’s Liability
In Texas, claimants are allowed to collect compensation even if they were partially at fault. Under the modified comparative negligence clause, you can be up to 50% at fault for the accident and still collect compensation.
For example, if you were to busy checking off your grocery list and tripped, you can still hold H-E-B liable for your injuries.
Your personal injury attorney will minimize your percentage at fault and maximize the total of compensation you can claim. In order to do this though, you must claim for damages.
These damages are expenses you incurred as a result of your accident, such as:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Physical impairment & disfigurement
