The floor is very slick and glossy, and the lawn chair didn't have any type of grip. His elbow is in extreme pain, and we do not have insurance. What are my options? I did report to HEB, and they only took my information down, and were completely unemphatetic. I do not know what to do. It was extremely difficult for him to function at work today.
I agree with the attorneys above who have commented. HEB typically has their entire store under surveillance which may help you show that HEB did something wrong. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney who can investigate your claim and make sure HEB does not get rid of any evidence related to your injury.
Premises liability cases are difficult to prosecute but there could be a potential case for liability on the Store's part if they knew that said floor was unreasonably slippery for their invitees(customers). The store's responsibility will be based on foreseeability and knowledge of the floors slippery surface. It is important that you see a lawyer in your area immediately to evaluate your case.
