Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 23-Nov-2012
Black Friday: a day when millions of Americans hit local shopping establishments in an effort to score cheap goods well below normal prices. But despite the major savings that consumers may receive by waiting in line outside their favorite chains, many Black Friday sales result in injuries, some of which are serious.
In Black Friday incident in San Antonio arguments between consumers in line provoked one man, carrying a concealed weapon permit, to pull a gun in an effort to calm the riled man in line.
While incidents similar to the one that occurred in San Antonio have taken place all over the country, they highlight the responsibility that businesses, managers and owners have to protect consumers from unnecessary harm that can potentially provoke slip and fall injuries, assault and accidents caused by poor crowd control.
