Help, I Got Injured at a Gas Station! Your Legal Options
Gas stations are a staple across the country, but gone are the days where you will have an individual clean your windows while helping to pump gas into your tank. In fact, many gas stations are managed by the convenience store clerk and an attendant whose work it is to provide you with change for your purchases and items. That said, gas stations are considered premises which means that the legal doctrine of premises liability law applies. Why is this important? The law states that you are owed something called duty of care when it comes to the property owner or manager keeping you safe as well as warning you of any hazards within the premises failure to which and in the event that you should get injured, you may be able to sue for money damages, something we’d be more than happy to help you with.
