Retail Store Accidents

New York City Accident Attorneys: Retail Store Injuries

Why should you alone suffer the consequences of being injured in a grocery store or by a retail store owner’s negligence? Failure to warn you of hazards in the aisle, wet floors and other known dangers is negligence on the part of the property owner.

Owners of retail stores such as grocery stores, department stores, toy stores, hardware stores, clothing stores and electronics stores have a responsibility to maintain reasonably safe conditions for all people who enter their property.

If you or a loved one has been injured because of hazardous conditions in a retail store, you should consult with an experienced personal injury attorney immediately. Delay allows a store owner time to cover up hazardous conditions and possibly deny responsibility for your injury.

Call us at 800-588-1579 to schedule a free initial consultation with an attorney who knows how to develop a compelling case and present it at trial. We have obtained six- and seven-figure verdicts on behalf of clients pursuing a variety of complex claims.


Proving negligence on the part of a business owner in a premises liability case is up to the plaintiff’s legal team. Eskesen  Attorneys at Law, we represent injury victims throughout the five boroughs of New York City and across the state. Our skilled trial lawyers have more than 85 years of combined experience representing injury victims and their families. We can help you pursue maximum compensation for injuries suffered in a retail store accident.

We build cases based on:

  • Stairwell hazards
  • Railing defects
  • Hazards in store aisles
  • Falling objects in stores
  • Sidewalk, crosswalk and parking lot defects, including inadequate snow and ice removal
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Slippery floors
  • Inadequate security
  • Inadequate signage around in-store hazards
  • Dog bites and attacks

If you have pictures of the hazard that caused your injury or if you were able to collect witness contact information, that can be helpful in building a case for your personal injury claim.

We understand that store employees and owners may have shown regret for your injury and may have been helpful in getting you proper medical attention, but that does not make up for the negligence that caused your injury. That does not make up for your medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs you may encounter as time progresses.

Our team works with medical and economic experts to assess the full value of your case and pursue the compensation you need for your best possible recovery.


We represent people injured in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens and throughout the New York City metropolitan area. Contact us at 800-588-1579 or by email to schedule a free initial consultation.
