Can I Sue for an Injury on Black Friday?

Accidents and injuries can happen any time of the year – even on Black Friday. The same rules apply on Black Friday as any other day, meaning you will have to prove that your injury was caused by someone’s negligence – not simply because you were too exhausted from waking up at the crack of dawn to beat the crowds. You can reduce your likelihood of an injury on Black Friday by following these tips:

  • Avoid areas with frenzied crowds; no deal or discount is worth your personal safety
  • Get plenty of rest the night before and lots of fluids the day of your shopping trip
  • Do not drive or shop while intoxicated or exhausted
  • Follow all traffic rules; ensure all vehicle occupants are buckled in safely
  • Do not obstruct your driving view by piling up lots of gifts in your car
  • Never escalate a situation into violence or respond to accidental contact violently
  • Give the employees and workers space so that they can move freely
  • Check on all injured persons and call for emergency services when needed

Lloyd Baker Injury Attorneys can help you receive compensation if you have been injured by:

  • A slip and fall because of debris or a spill in a store aisle
  • Falling merchandise and shelving
  • Failure to warn of hazards
  • Malfunctioning escalators or elevators
