Arkansans are quite familiar with big box stores. This is the home of Wal-Mart, after all. These massive stores are convenient one-stop locations for many Arkansas families looking to save money in difficult times.
These stores can also be dangerous if they aren’t run with a watchful eye from management. And the temptation to cut corners is always prominent. The Arkansas premises liability lawyer at The Law Offices of Alan LeVar has helped clients who suffered significant injuries at big box stores.
Our team can investigate your accident to determine its cause, then pursue a claim for justice and compensation on your behalf.

Beware of Falling Merchandise
Because there’s such a wide range of merchandise available at big box stores, and because most of these stores are massive in size, there’s a lot that can slip through the cracks. And when problems slip through the cracks at these large retail outlets, innocent shoppers can pay the price.
Our Arkansas premises liability lawyer has seen clients suffer injuries from:
- Slip and falls
- Parking lot issues, including potholes, inadequate signage and serious layout flaws
- Inadequate security
- Inadequately trained employees
However, one of the most common claims against big box stores has to do with heavy, dangerously placed merchandise falling on customers and doing serious damage.
A store like Wal-Mart has to carry a large amount of product and make it available to customers, which means there is often a lot of goods stacked up high on a big box store’s shelves. And these goods aren’t just restricted to toilet paper or boxes of cereal; if you’ve been in the electronics department of a large retailer, you’ve seen massive TVs located quite high on shelves.
These stores tend to be litigation-phobic, and they should train workers extensively on how to handle this merchandise. However, these incidents still happen at an alarming rate, and our Arkansas premises liability lawyer has experience holding big box stores accountable for their negligence.
Mr. LeVar and his team will thoroughly investigate your accident, which means:
- Examining the scene of the incident
- Closely looking over all physical evidence
- Determining if the set-up of the merchandise that fell on you was inherently dangerous
- Examining the store’s safety procedures and training methods
Our premises liability lawyer will be able to determine fault, then pursue justice and compensation for you. No one can promise you a specific monetary settlement, but when you’re going up against a massive retailer, don’t you want a skilled, experienced attorney fighting for you?
