Gas stations such as Mobil attract thousands of shoppers each day. As a major U.S. oil company that merged with Exxon in 1999, and one that is often associated with its own convenience store, Mobil has high volumes of customers, thus causing some employees to fail to notice any spills or slippery substances that can cause shoppers to slip, trip and fall. Mobil has a responsibility to maintain its premises in a safe manner so as to prevent any of its customers from becoming injured while they are in the gas station.

What kind of injuries have Mobil gas station customers sustained?
Most slip and fall accidents at gas stations do not result in serious or life-threatening injuries. However, sometimes severe injuries can result from slipping on spilt food, liquids or cleaning supplies. Serious injuries can also be caused by cracked or uneven pavement, poor water runoff, pooled gasoline or oil, and untreated ice and snow that have accumulated.
In addition, because the gas station is often associated with a convenience store, there are other chances for customers to slip and fall on slippery substances inside the store. Furthermore, poorly maintained restrooms may have spilt water or soap that can cause customers to slip and fall.
If you sustained severe injuries because of hazardous conditions at the gas station or convenience store caused by employee negligence, you may have a cause of action against Circle K to obtain compensation for your injury and to aid in your recovery.
