Supermarket & Retail Store Accidents FAQs

You may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages resulting from the accident. A personal injury lawyer like Mr. Guajardo can help assess the full extent of your damages and pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.

What If I Was Partially At Fault For The Accident?
