Ross Dress for Less is an off-price retail store selling clothing, home items, shoes, and more to customers in Florida. Many people visit their local Ross store looking for a good deal on the products they need around the house. While many trips to Ross are completed without any issues, this is not always the case.
Hazards in a Ross store can easily lead to a slip and fall accident, resulting in injuries that require immediate medical treatment. You could get compensation for your medical expenses and other losses if you were hurt in a Ross store. A Florida Ross Dress for Less slip and fall accident and injury lawyer from Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers can help you build your claim.
Information About Ross Dress for Less Stores
The first Ross store opened in the year 1982 in the state of California. Currently, there are over 1,600 Ross stores operational in 39 states. Ross Stores, Inc., the company that operates Ross Dress for Less, had a revenue of $12.53 billion in 2020.
This large revenue stream may lead you to believe that it will be easy to get the compensation you need after a slip and fall accident in a Ross store. Unfortunately, this is frequently not the case. Ross works with powerful insurance agents who can work to deny you the compensation you need. They may claim that you were responsible for your slip and fall accident by arguing that:
- You ignored warning signs that indicated hazards.
- You entered an area of the store that was closed to customers.
- You were not paying attention to what you were doing.
- You were wearing unsafe or inappropriate footwear.
A slip and fall lawyer from our firm can help you stand up to these claims. Make sure you contact Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers before you speak with any representatives for Ross Dress for Less to keep your case strong.

Reasons Slip and Fall Accidents Happen in Ross Stores
Many slip and fall accidents in Ross Dress for Less stores are a result of a wet or damp floor. Floors may be dangerously slick if:
- They were recently mopped.
- It is raining outside the store.
- A product leaks or spills on the floor.
You could also slip and fall on objects left in aisles around the store. Even cracked or damaged floors can lead to a serious accident in Florida. It can be helpful to be aware of your surroundings and exercise reasonable safety precautions to increase your chances of avoiding a slip and fall accident. But accidents can happen to anyone.

Results of Slip and Fall Accidents
A slip and fall accident can leave you with severe injuries. Many times, when an individual slips and falls in a Ross store, they hit:
- A hard floor.
- A clothing rack.
- A display case.
Falling into these objects can result in cuts, abrasions, broken bones, and serious injuries to your head, neck, and back. It is important that you seek medical care for your injuries as quickly as possible. You can only get compensation for injuries caused by your slip and fall accident.
What Steps Should I Take After Experiencing a Slip and Fall Accident?
Remember that your health and safety are the priority, so make sure to get the medical help you need. But clear documentation can also help you with later claims.
Insurance agents can try to claim that your injuries were not actually caused by your accident. Official medical records detailing the treatment you received can help demonstrate that your accident was responsible for any injuries you sustained. You should also document your slip and fall accident by reporting it to an employee at the store.
You can also take pictures and videos of the accident site and your injuries. This can add to available evidence supporting any future claims as well.
