Chattanooga Retail Store Negligence Attorney
Retail store negligence is a term that is used when a retail store’s management or employees act in a negligent manner that endangers the safety and well-being of its customers. For instance, if a customer visits a retail store and slips on a wet floor, and incurs injuries, the retail store may be held liable for negligence in the warning of, and/r or unsafe maintenance of, the store. This is especially true in cases where retail store owners, managers and employees are aware of hazardous conditions and do nothing to fix the condition and/or neglect to warn customers that the unsafe condition exists.
