This happened in the produce isle. There was a very rotted out pallet on the floor holding up the potatoes and onions. Do I have a lawsuit and for how much money ?
I went back to the store the next morning and now it has a different stick hanging out in thevisle
Depending on facts not revealed but which should be discussed with a personal injury attorney, you could make a claim for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. I don't know what this is a "next thing you knew" type of moment, however. Pallets of potatoes and onions tend to be very observable, and there usually is no legal duty owed to somebody to warn against open potential hazards. Best of luck, You should run this by a PI attorney.

This could be a case but you have to talk to a personal injury lawyer in your county. They will know the law, the location and the jury pool. How much the case is worth (if it is a case) depend on how bad the injury is. It will often depend on if if you immediately sought medical attention and what those reports say. Typically speaking slip and fall cases are worth substantially less than cases where someone is injured in a car accident or is injured in a way that requires serious surgery. With that being said, every case is different and you should talk to a persona injury attorney in your are if you want to know more.
