Injuries Retail Workers Experience

If you have not worked in the retail industry, you might not know the struggle that hard-working employees face each and every shift. They are often pressured to put away freight while also keeping the store clean and handling customer concerns. Some employees are even tasked to cover several areas of the store at once, attempting to juggle tasks and stave off exhaustion. The fast-paced world of retail can easily and unexpectedly amount to any number of retail accidents.

Accidents that frequently occur within a retail store include:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Struck by falling product
  • Back pain (stocking load)
  • Burns from hazardous cleaning supplies
  • Hit by a vehicle (cart retrieval in parking lot)
  • Assaulted by customers (emotional trauma)

In some retail locations, heavy machinery is onsite, such as a cardboard baler or forklift. When one such piece of equipment is defective or is not properly maintained, the results can be catastrophic, ending in the wrongful death of an employee. Should you be experiencing the grief of losing a loved one after they suffered a retail accident, we can represent your claims in such a case as well.

Employers do not like to reach into their coffers often, no matter the reason. To this end, it can be a real struggle for injured employees to find the workers’ compensation benefits that they require just to recover and get by.

The point is that you should not have to worry about your finances after you suffer a retail accident, and we can do all that is in our power to keep you comfortable.
