Legal Action Against a Business

If a business or one of its employees is guilty of negligence, the business may be liable for any resulting harms or injuries.  Negligence includes actions or inaction that result in hazards or accidents that cause injury or death. 

The business and/or its insurance company may be responsible for paying medical bills, lost wages, and other damages that were caused by the accident.

Every business that does welcomes people onto its premises is subject to a potential personal injury lawsuit in the event of an accident or injury. For that reason, almost every business carries some level of insurance to protect themselves in the case of an accident.

As a person visiting a business, you have a right to feel safe. If the company or business fails to uphold that standard, they may be held legally liable for your injuries. 

If you believe you have a case against a business or a corporate wrongdoing lawsuit, contact Davis Law Group today at (206) 727-4000.

Suing a Business: The Basics

There are three elements of a personal injury lawsuit against a business. These are the same for all negligence claims (medical malpractice, slip and fall, etc.).

  • A duty of care was owed by the business to the customer. Businesses or companies that interact with the public must create a safe environment for customers. There is what is called a “reasonable standard” that businesses must follow, but it does not mean that the business is liable for any injury. No business can prevent all injuries.
  • There was a breach of the duty of care. When a business fails to uphold its duty of care, that duty is breached and the business could be liable.
  • Harm was caused by the breach. The customer must prove that the breach of duty of care led to harm.

Harm Caused by a Business

When a big business or corporation causes someone injuries, that harm can take many forms. A personal injury attorney can help identify all the ways you have been affected, and subsequently help you recover those losses. 

Harm can take many forms, including: 

The main issue is proving whether the business actually caused the harm. It isn’t enough to show that a customer suffered harm after an incident, and attempt to leave it at that.

​Potential Negligent Actions by a Business

Failure to Properly Maintain Vehicles, Equipment or Premises

Businesses have a duty to meet local, state, and federal regulations that dictate the maintenance and safety of vehicles, equipment, and facilities that are used for business purposes. Failure to do so may result in harm to employees or the public.

Failure to Properly Train or Supervise Employees

Corporations must properly train their employees on safe business practices, equipment and vehicle operations, product quality control, etc. Failure to properly train employees or lack of supervision may result in acts or omissions that endanger the public. 

Examples include falling boxes, facility hazards, release of dangerous chemicals, and explosions or fires.   

Employee Negligence and Misconduct

When employees recklessly misbehave, fail to follow regulations, procedures, or safety protocols, or impaired by drugs or alcohol their actions or inaction can cause serious harm to individuals or the public at large. 

Frequently employees driving a corporate car and delivery truck drivers cause motor vehicle accidents that cause injuries or fatalities. 

When Hiring an Attorney Will Help Your Case

It can be difficult to prove or pursue a case against a business. Businesses and their insurance companies have the money to hire multiple attorneys to defend against potential claims. It can be very difficult for someone without legal experience to go up against a team of trained defense attorneys.

If you have been injured as a result of corporate wrongdoing or negligent employees, it may be time to consult a personal injury attorney who has experience with suing corporations. Davis Law Group has the knowledge and financial resources to go up against big businesses and win the compensation you are deserved.
