Slip and Fall Injury at Chevron Gas Station Boynton Beach
Chevron gas stations are located all around the country, in almost every city, including Boynton Beach, Florida. Chevron stations have evolved from just providing fuel to full service stations which sell gas and gasoline products, as well as a wide range of other products in their stores. These stores stock cold beverages, hot food, snacks, cigarettes, and other items customers may need to pick up as they stop for gas. The stores also have restrooms for use by customers.
Chevron stations are also sometimes the site of slip and fall accidents. These accidents can cause injury to clients who are simply stopping by a Chevron in Boynton for fuel or to buy an item inside the store. If you suffer a slip and fall at one of the Chevron stations in Boynton Beach, call the experienced premises liability attorneys at Frankl & Kominsky to help you gain compensation, and possibly damages, for the injury you sustained due to someone else's negligence.Proving Liability in Slip and Fall
The law requires owners of properties to keep those properties safe for patrons and visitors. That means the owners and managers of Chevron stations in and near Boynton Beach must maintain the property so that it is not a danger to others. This includes everything from ensuring that the parking lot pavement is free from hazards to keeping aisles in the store clear of foreign objects and spills to making sure the bathroom tile is not broken or uneven. If the owner of the Chevron fails to maintain this safe environment, they can be held liable for a slip and fall, or trip and fall, accident that takes place on their property.
However, the Chevron owners in Boynton Beach may not willingly accept responsibility. It is then up to the victim of the slip and fall to prove that the accident happened because there was a dangerous condition at the Chevron, and that the owner or manager of the property knew or should have known about that dangerous condition. A dangerous condition is something that presents an unreasonable risk to someone who is on the property. Also, it must be foreseeable that the negligence of the owner or manager of the Chevron would create the danger.Getting Legal Help
