Best Buy faces premises liability claim

An injury can easily take place on a business property in Pennsylvania if the property owner has not exercised adequate care in keeping the property free of hazards. One man recently claimed he suffered injuries at a Best Buy store due to the store's negligence. He has filed a premises liability lawsuit against the electronics store in light of his injuries.

According to his lawsuit, the man was shopping at the store one day and came across a rubber mat at the store's entrance. The mat allegedly caused the man to slip and then fall. He claimed that he suffered injuries as a result of this fall.

The plaintiff claimed that the Best Buy store was negligent by failing to create an environment for its customers that was safe and clean. The store is also accused of not warning its customers about the danger tied to the mat. He is pursuing unspecified damages as part of the lawsuit.

Pennsylvania businesses that do not keep up their properties in a manner that is safe for customers may face liability claims for any injuries that occur as a result. A slip-and-fall accident can cause an accident victim to accrue major medical bills and even experience the loss of wages because he or she cannot return to work for an extended period of time. A successfully presented premises liability claim may lead to an award of financial damages that can help to cover these losses as well as address pain and suffering and emotional distress resulting from the incident.
