Drugstores have come a long way from the old days. Today, these stores are about a lot more than bandages, ointments, and pills, and they are growing in number.
The attorneys and staff at the law firm of Feiner & Lavy see CVS and Walgreens right in our South Bronx neighborhood, and Duane Reade and Rite Aid all around the city. What sets these national chain drugstores apart is that they are as much a convenience store as they are a drugstore.
They are big spaces that are filled with things far beyond medical needs. There are coolers with drinks and ice cream, shelves of snacks and candies, soap, shampoo, hair color, toys, and some even have ready-to-eat fresh fruit and vegetables. The selection is incredible, and many of the locations are open 24 hours a day. But all this convenience comes with a price. And that price can be the safety of customers.
With employees constantly busy ringing registers, stocking shelves and handling all the work that keeps the stores running, maintenance issues and negligence can lead to all sorts of hazards emerging. A spill that doesn’t get mopped up, a dolly left in an aisle, errantly placed boxes, blown lightbulbs that aren’t replaced, a runner that’s a tripping hazard, or a spilled bottle of shampoo can lead to a slip and fall injury that leaves someone in a doctor’s care for months or could possibly even an injury whose symptoms can last a lifetime.
The big drugstore chains know that their stores can have hazards, and they have staff who are experienced in dealing with slip-and-fall accidents. These people are paid to settle a claim made by someone who got hurt through no fault of their own in one of their stores. They want to settle your claim for as little as possible, make you sign papers that say you cannot appeal, and send you on your way. If your medical expenses are higher than you thought, too bad. If your lost wages have put your family on the brink of losing your home, too bad. They don’t want you to think about or even understand how bad things can get for you – they just want to get you out of the way quickly and cheaply.
This is why you need a Bronx personal injury law firm like Feiner & Lavy in your corner.

Our experience and determination will lead us to fight for every dollar you are owed. There are reasons why Feiner & Lavy are the “fight for injury” lawyers.
The people who run these drugstores may have failed in maintaining a safe environment where you could shop without getting hurt, but they are determined not to fail when it comes to defending against your claim. Feiner & Lavy come armed with investigators and a terrific staff whose goal is to get you the maximum settlement.
