Types of injures that commonly happen at retail stores

While one might not think of it when running in to a mall or individual store to make a quick purchase, there are actually a lot of ways in which a Kentucky resident can get hurt inside a retail store.

When they do not do so, and when someone gets hurt as a result, then the property owner may owe the injured victim compensation. This legal concept is called premises liability.
