Our Miami Personal injury Attorneys have found that the most common factors causing or contributing to gas station injury accidents are:

Our lawyers can help you understand what to do after a slip and fall or trip and fall accident.
- Negligent Security – Gas station injuries and fatalities can and do occur as the result criminal actions by third parties. If the gas station owner is on notice of foreseeable criminal activity such as assaults, loitering, and/or robberies, they should provide adequate on-premises security. If the gas station owners fail to provide a reasonably safe premises and personal injuries or wrongful death occurs, the gas station may be liable for the damages caused in a premises liability claim.
- Defective Gas Pump Nozzles – Gas station injuries can include cuts and lacerations from the metal portion of gas pumps; gas pump malfunctions can also cause cuts as well as wrist, hand, arm or shoulder injuries; and the gas hose, if not properly maintained and timely replaced can twist and snap into the customer causing injuries to the body or face.
