Man brings premises liability lawsuit against Petco

Most pet owners here in New Jersey are likely familiar with the retail chain Petco. Recently, in another state, a premises liability case has arisen involving this national pet store chain.

The case involves an accident that a man says he suffered while he was shopping at a Petco store in Louisiana on May 3. The man says that, while he was walking by the store's checkout counter, he tripped on some merchandise and fell. The man alleges that the store negligently allowed said merchandise to pose a hazard to customers.

According to the man, he suffered numerous injuries in this trip-and-fall accident. Included among the things the man claims he injured in the accident are his knees, hip, neck, head and shoulder. He also says that he experienced mental anguish and physical pain and suffering as a result of the accident.

The man is suing Petco in relation to this trip-and-fall accident. In the lawsuit, he is asking for $50,000 in damages.

It is incredibly important for pet stores and other retail stores to do everything they reasonably can to keep their patrons safe. This includes making sure that merchandise doesn't end up in areas where customers could trip over it. As the allegations in the above-mentioned case underscore, customers can get significantly injured when they suffer a trip-and-fall accident at a store. Premise liability lawsuits can provide victims of accidents at stores with a way to seek monetary relief for injuries that were caused by a store not taking proper steps to keep its premises safe for customers.
