Slip and Fall Injury at Texaco Gas Station Boynton Beach
Texaco gas stations are familiar to Boynton Beach residents and to residents and visitors throughout the country. In Boynton, there are two Texaco stations, and several others in areas near Boynton. These stations are located on roads with heavy traffic and large numbers of users. These stations are convenient, selling all kinds of fuel and quick-stop food and drink items for customers who stop at the stores.
Customers who stop at the Boynton Beach Texaco stations expect an environment free of hazards and dangers. No one who stops at a Texaco plans to trip or slip and fall and suffer injuries, but these types of accidents do happen. In cases where these slip and falls are the result of negligence by the property owner or manager, the victim is entitled to compensation. The premises liability lawyers at Frankl & Kominsky can help slip and fall victims gain that compensation and navigate the complex legal system.Do I Really Have a Claim?
Many victims of slip or trip and fall accidents at Texaco stations are embarrassed about falling and hurting themselves. Initially, they may think they were simply careless or clumsy, and do not want to escalate the situation by filing a claim or contacting an attorney. However, slip and fall accidents can cause serious injury, and when they are the fault of the owner or manager of the Texaco, the victim is not liable for those costs.
The basic legal standard for slip and fall is that the Boynton Beach Texaco owner or manager is liable if they are negligent. If there was a dangerous situation at the Texaco, and if the owner or manager knew or should have known about the danger but did not mitigate that danger, then they may be liable for injuries caused by a slip and fall.
For example, if a soda spilled in an aisle of the Texaco and the individual working at the cashier knew about the spill but did not have time to clean it up before a customer slipped on the spill and fell, the Boynton Texaco may be at fault. If the Boynton Beach Texaco is at fault, they may have to compensate the victim of the slip and fall for medical bills, hospital stays, surgery, prescription, wages lost due to inability to work, pain and suffering, or other damages.How Bad Can it Be?
Slip and fall accidents can cause very serious injuries. In one case, a woman who slipped on icy pavement outside a gas station was awarded $75,000 because of the extensive injuries she incurred.
A slip and fall at any gas station, including one of the Texaco stations in Boynton Beach, can lead to a variety of injuries.
