OUR INJURY LAWYERS SUE MENARDS IN MN
Menard’s slogan is “Save Big Money at Menards.” We have to admit that Menards offers good value on their products, and we like the layout of the new stores. However, over the years, our injury attorneys have noticed that Menards is the Minnesota store that we sue most frequently. It may be that part of the way they save money is by skimping on store safety and customer safety, or it may be that they just haven’t figured out to put safety procedures in their store like the other national chains. Whatever the reason, you have to be extra careful when you shop at a Menards store.
Our injured in accident attorneys have represented a number of people who were injured at a Menards store in Minnesota. Our lawyers have sued Menards for slip and fall cases, trip and fall injury cases, situations where something fell on a customer, and others. Often, the store will say that it is the customer’s fault for not watching where they were going or being more careful. However, the law in Minnesota requires the STORE to be more careful because the store should know that its customers are being distracted by the products and displays (THE STORE IS DESIGNED TO GET YOU TO LOOK AT THEIR PRODUCTS AND DISPLAYS SO YOU WILL BUY MORE) and will be less likely to see obstacles and hazards that the store may have left out. When Menards blames the customer for being injured in the store it is often just Menards refusing to take responsibility for their own mistake.
Our MN store injury lawyers take cases where there has been a serious injury, usually involving surgery, and where there is something unusual about the situation that caused the injury. For example, where a pallet was left at the corner of a shopping isle and our client turned the corner and tripped on it. A lawyer in our office recently settled a case against Menards where the store allowed the cement flooring to deteriorate and our client tripped on it while looking for a cart. We recently got a call from a Menards customer who was hit by a forklift in the store. Our business accident injury lawyers have also handled many MN slip and fall cases at a store where our client fell in a parking lot or fell in a store because the store did not salt the ice or clean up a spill.
If you or a family member are injured in a slip and fall accident at a Menards store, or if you tripped and fell or were injured in another way at one of the Menards stores in MN, please make sure that you get lots of photos of the area where you fell or were injured and get the names and contact information of any witnesses and store employees who were in the area and the manager. Then please call our office and speak with an injury attorney in MN as soon as possible so that we can investigate your case and explain your rights to you. A lawyer will investigate your case and give you an honest answer about whether it is worth pursuing. If we can take your case, our primary focus is to make sure you are treated fairly and get complete compensation for your injury, and we will sue Menards if necessary.
