As Colorado residents, we have probably seen one of the many 7-Eleven stores across our state. Colorado is home to approximately 370 7-Eleven stores, all of which have an obligation to keep customers safe from hazards inside and outside the store, including the parking lot. At Cook, Bradford & Levy, we are experienced 7-11 accident lawyers in Colorado who can help you if you have been hurt at a 7-Eleven. If you have been injured at a 7-11, we urge you to call us today at 303-543-1000 for a free consultation.
Approximately 70% of all 7-Eleven stores are owned and operated by franchisees. Regardless of whether the store is corporate or run by a franchisee, 7-11’s duty to keep the store safe does not change. Our experienced 7-Eleven accident attorneys understand that accidents at 7-11 are controlled by Colorado’s Premises Liability Act (PLA). Under the PLA, a visitor to a convenience store like 7-Eleven is known as an invitee, and an invitee is owed the highest duty of safety by the store. Specifically, 7-11 must keep customers safe from dangers that it knows about or should know about.
Our 7-Eleven accident lawyers know that dangers can arise in many ways including:
- Slippery and wet floors
- Failure to use safety cones to warn of slippery floors
- Snow and ice on sidewalks and parking lots
- Leaving unstocked merchandise in the aisles
- Building code violations
- And many more …
If you have been injured at a 7-Eleven, the store may deny that it did anything wrong. However, our experienced Colorado 7-11 accident attorneys will investigate your claim and put 7-Eleven on notice to save all evidence related to the accident. Not only is video footage usually available to show what the store did wrong, but we should be able to get 7-Eleven’s incident report, maintenance logs, and list of employees who were working at the time you were hurt. In addition, our 7-11 accident lawyers are familiar with 7-Eleven’s safety operations playbook, and we can use it, as well as convenience store industry standards, to show that the store did not meet its duty to keep the store safe for you.
Unfortunately, most stores like 7-11 will not offer you a fair settlement without bringing a lawsuit against them. The good news is that at Cook, Bradford & Levy, our litigators are not strangers to filing suit against 7-Eleven or its franchise owners. Our lawyers have taken depositions of 7-Eleven management as well as employees who were on site at the time of the accident. It is through the deposition process that an experienced 7-Eleven accident attorney can drill down to find out what the store actually knew or should have known about the dangerous condition that caused your injury. Our team of lawyers has also worked with nationally renowned experts to help prove that what 7-11 says it did to keep you safe was not enough to meet industry standards for convenience store safety.
At Cook, Bradford & Levy, we understand that it can be scary when you may need to file a lawsuit before you can get fair compensation for your injuries. Our experienced 7-11 accident lawyers can ease your stress by explaining that we represent our clients on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not get paid if we are unable to get you a financial recovery. Also, our law firm will advance all the costs necessary to build up your case such as hiring experts to show what 7-Eleven did wrong, proving your medical damages, etc. We understand that the only way for you to maximize your compensation is to stand up to corporate giants like 7-Eleven and show them that you are willing to do what is necessary to achieve justice. Our 7-11 accident attorneys are experienced doing just that, and we are ready to do the same for you.
