Pennsylvania woman injured on someone else's property

Most people wake up in the morning never expecting to be injured on someone else's property as they go throughout the day. A Pennsylvania woman is suing Walgreens because she feels it is their fault she was injured while she was shopping at one of their neighborhood pharmacy locations. Anyone who has been injured on someone else's property may have the right to seek financial compensation to cover a variety of costs incurred from such an injury.

The woman says the area of the store where the shopping carts were kept, as well as an adjacent merchandise display, drew her attention in such a way that she was not aware of a wooden pallet in the same area. She tripped over the pallet and fell. The fall resulted in two chipped teeth and damage to various parts of her body.

The woman claims there were no signs that warned patrons of the risk from the placement of the pallet. A report did not state the purpose of the pallet or if it was loaded with stock that was to be placed on store shelves. The woman is requesting compensation in an amount up to $50,000 and is expected to cover medical bills, lost wages and other financial damages.

When a Pennsylvania resident is injured on someone else's property, there are times that a claim can be made against the property owner. When the injured party can provide as many details as possible on the incident, their legal representation has a better chance of making a case for compensation. These details can include notes made, pictures taken, any correspondence with the property owner and medical treatment specifics. The best first step is typically to seek advice regarding an independent review of the incident and an assessment of the viability of proceeding to court.
