Black Friday is all about the deals and, of course, the doorbusters. But, in order to get those deals, you have to be willing to show up to the retail store early and fight your way through the doors. People have proven that they can become vicious in these situations – and sometimes even violent. It is not uncommon for Black Friday shoppers, as well as general holiday shoppers, to suffer from scrapes, cuts, bruises, broken bones, and even traumatic injuries because of the impatient shoppers at their local sales.
If you are injured during a Black Friday sale or any type of shopping trip, you can file a lawsuit against the negligent party. But, the person responsible can vary depending on who caused the injury and ultimately who was negligent.
Shopping is not inherently dangerous, but during peak shopping times it can become such. Some of the more commonly seen injuries during these holiday sales events include:
In a Black Friday or other shopping injury, it is important to establish liability. Just because you were assaulted by a shopper does not mean the shopper is the only person responsible for your injuries. You may also have a claim against the store owner for failing to provide adequate security. Also, if you are harmed attempting to enter the store, the store could be liable because they failed to have precautions in place for the extra volume of customers entering at a single time.
