Home Depot has over 2,000 stores located across the country, making it one of the largest retail stores in the U.S. selling home improvement and construction materials. Like other large retail stores, Home Depot employs hundreds of employees and is visited by thousands of customers daily. Not surprisingly, Home Depot faces more than its fair share of lawsuits by customers injured because of the negligence of the company and its employees.
Retail stores have an obligation to maintain its premises in a reasonably safe condition and to warn customers of any potential hazards or dangers.
Home Depot has been the subject of a number of injury lawsuits. This doesn’t necessarily mean Home Depot is an unsafe store. In fact, most large retailers face numerous injury lawsuits every year. The reason for this is because they employ hundreds of employees. While most employees are likely well trained, it only takes one negligent employee to cause an accident.
