Gas station or convenience store accident injury claims are an everyday occurrence in Miami Florida, Dallas, Texas, and Los Angeles, California. The duty of care for visitors has increased while the care constituents receive has decreased. Gone are the days when full-service gas station employees cleaned your windshield while pumping gasoline.
The modern filling station employee is more a convenience store operator than an attendant. Property owners largely ignore filling station customer protection around service areas despite the increased demands of traffic at the scene.

Our talented staff can help any victim recover the cost of medical treatment and lost wages from negligent operators.

Difference With Service Station Accidents?
A modern service location may include an electric charging grid, soapy on-site car washes, a self-service diesel or regular filling station, air, water, restrooms. The adjacent convenience store generally has aisles full of engine lubricants, cookies, soft drinks, snacks, beer, wine, and alcohol.
Homelessness and panhandling problems place customers at risk of dangerous conditions, including stabbings or abduction. The risk of a gas station slip and fall or gas nozzle/oil slick spills is magnified by toxic gases or fuel vapor inhalation.
Occupational hazards and transient assaults occur near gas station pumps. Serious personal injury or wrongful death caused by gas station accidents require top-notch legal services. Our law firm can help you recover damages.
Most Common Gas Station Incidents
Fact, inadequate lighting at night is a contributing factor in many sexual assaults and slip-and-fall injuries. It’s irresponsible for store owners to notice potential dangers not to prevent attacks at their location.
The station operator must illuminate dark or unsafe parking lots. This is a non-delegable duty. It is both an additional security measure and a way to keep the property safe from negligence and explosions.
Lack of illumination at the pump dispenser area may cause a fall accident or worse. (For example, spilling fuel, improperly configured pumps, poorly maintained electronics). Gas station owners, companies and even a driver can be held liable if they failed to exercise reasonable care and you were negatively affected.

Negligent Security – Why Are Gas Station Attacks So Common?
Marketing would make you think you’re not in danger at service stations. But these notorious crime magnet scenes. In many personal injury cases, various types of crimes contribute to the injuries at these sites, unlike other business locations.
If the business does not take in-store security measures or fails to prevent criminal activity, it may be liable. The industry standard is employing a situational crime prevention plan.
If you are injured in an auto accident or damaged property at a gas station, our office can help settle your claim or file a premises liability lawsuit. Our staff has recovered millions for work-related or other premises liability condition issues.
You may be eligible for a design or product defect claim from either the equipment manufacturer. The metal portions of gas pumps can malfunction and cause cuts, wrist, hand, arm, or shoulder injuries. A defect can make the filling hose break loose at high pressure.
The gas station has a duty to inspect and maintain or replace nozzles and hoses for patrons.
