Gas stations such as Chevron 76 attract thousands of shoppers each day. As a major U.S. oil company with 1800 locations, and one that is often associated with its own convenience store, Chevron has high volumes of customers, thereby causing some employees to fail to observe any spills or slippery substances that can cause shoppers to slip, trip and fall. Chevron 76 has a responsibility to keep its premises in a safe condition so as to prevent any of its customers from becoming injured while they are in the gas station.

What Kind of Injuries Have Chevron 76 Gas Station Customers Sustained?
The majority of slip and fall injuries at gas stations do not lead to serious or life-threatening injuries. However, people can become seriously injured from slipping on spilt food, liquids or cleaning supplies. Customers can also become injured from slipping, tripping and falling on cracked or uneven pavement, poor water runoff, gasoline or oil that has pooled, and large patches of ice and snow that have not been treated.
Additionally, since the gas station is frequently linked to a convenience store, there are many other opportunities for customers to slip, trip and fall on slippery substances inside the store. Moreover, poorly maintained restrooms may contain spilt water or soap that can cause people to slip and fall, and become injured.
If you suffered serious injuries because of dangerous conditions at a Chevron 76 gas station or convenience store caused by employee negligence, you may be able to file a claim of negligence against Chevron 76 to secure compensation for your injury and to aid in your recovery.
