When you need to get some things done around your home, maybe some improvements, you probably know you can find what you need at your local Home Depot store. Certainly, you’ll have no trouble finding one. They have over 2,000 locations around the country and plenty right here in the Miami area. Usually, when you go to a Home Depot, you find what you need and leave.
But what happens if you get hurt when you are there?
If you need a Home Depot accident attorney because of an injury you sustained while at their location, you can count on the Dante Law Firm to help you. We know you expected to be safe when you went to the store, but we can help you through this.
Home Depot stores are really big and they contain everything you could need for your home, both inside and out. Due to their size and the amount of products they carry, there are potential hazards everywhere. While we recognize that employees and managers usually do their best to create a safe environment, sometimes their negligence gets people hurt.
From washing machines and sinks to lumber and stones, there are many heavy objects around Home Depot stores. If these are not properly secured, they could fall and cause major injuries to customers.
If liquid collects anywhere around the store, employees should immediately clean it up or post appropriate warnings around the area to prevent people from slipping. Slip and fall accidents are one of the leading causes of injuries in stores around the country. Falls can also happen due to the saw dust that collects around the lumber department. This should be properly cleaned by employees.
There are many chemicals in a Home Depot store that could cause people to become ill or get injured. From pesticides and herbicides to paint stripper, customers should not be exposed to them. Children are at particular risk to chemical ingestion.
There are many sharp objects around Home Depot stores. Saw blades, lawn tools, and nails are just a few of the items that can cause an injury if not properly stored.
