Lawsuit: girl struck in head by falling sign at jewelry store

One thing that is a very common sight at stores are signs. There are a wide variety of different signs at stores: price signs, sale signs, product advertisements, signs aimed at helping customers navigate the store, etc. It is important for stores here in New Jersey to take proper steps to ensure that signs on their premises are adequately secured. It is particularly important for stores to do this for signs that are heavy, have sharp edges or have other potentially harmful aspects. If such signs are improperly secured and fall, they can cause serious injuries to customers.

Recently, a case has arisen involving an accident that involved a sign at a store. The case is from another state, Louisiana.

The accident involved a minor, a girl. According to the girl's parents, the accident occurred while the girl was shopping at a jewelry store. The girl's parents claim that the store negligently failed to secure a sign in a proper manner and that this resulted in the sign falling and striking the girl.

According to the girl's parents, the girl suffered a head wound in this accident and this wound caused the girl to have to get stitches and to suffer pain and scarring.

In relation to these allegations, a lawsuit has been brought against the jewelry store by the girl's parents. One wonders what will ultimately happen in this premises liability case.

Accidents at stores can be very harmful. As the allegations in this case illustrate, children are sometimes the victims of such accidents. No child should have to suffer a harmful accident due to the conduct of a store. One hopes stores are held accountable when they commit premises-related negligence that results in a child getting hurt.
