IL injury lawyerThe holiday retail sale has become a popular trend among some Americans in recent years, and while shopping is normally a relatively safe activity, shopping this time of year has become something of a free-for-all. The media is full of instances showing mob-like groups rushing through barricades and even fighting with each other in an effort to purchase a specific product. In some cases, injuries have occurred, which have become horrific and even deadly in nature. Retaining the services of an experienced personal injury attorney can be necessary to ensure that an injured individual is compensated for injuries suffered at the hands of another person.

This past Thanksgiving, a member of the U.S. Military was shot and killed by local law enforcement at an Alabama mall in an apparent case of mistaken identity. As details have come out, it seems apparent that the victim was targeted by police who believed he was the gunman because he was brandishing a weapon as he was exiting the mall. Unfortunately, after the excitement of the Christmas season subsides, the reality is that these events do, in some cases, cause injuries. A discussion of retail rage, including what shopkeepers must do to keep the peace, as well as some common holiday retail sale injuries, will follow below.

Holiday Retail Sale Violence

Typically the busiest shopping weekend of the year, Thanksgiving weekend, in recent years, has seen an increasing number of incidents resulting in injuries. Analysts have studied why injuries occur during the holiday season and determined the unique characteristics of Thanksgiving weekend retail sale promotions, and the frantic retail environment they create, are the primary cause. During this weekend, retailers heavily promote their most desirable items at deeply-discounted prices to encourage more foot traffic. However, as distinguished from many other sales, at this time of year, retailers restrict the supply, leading to aggressive consumer behavior for the few items available.

IL injury lawyer and most will never take any sort of aggressive action against a human without significant provocation. In other words, <a href= Dog bites are somewhat rare. Nevertheless, owners bear a large responsibility to keep their animals from harming other people and can be held legally liable for injuries that result from an animal attack.

Illinois law is stringent about holding owners liable for the actions of their animals. This approach is in place to protect members of the public that have no reason to anticipate an animal attack, as well as to ensure owners take proper precautions to keep their animal from posing a danger. This responsibility is increased if animal control determines the dog should be labeled as “dangerous,” a designation assigned following an attack or threatening behavior.

The standards for labeling a dog as dangerous are set at the local level and the city of La Salle proposed expanding its dangerous dog ordinance to include attacks against other dogs, and not just people, as a qualifying event. The potential physical injury and emotional trauma these attacks can provoke are behind the strength of these ordinances, and victims of dog bites need to understand what their options are when these incidents occur. A look at the owner’s general liability for a dog bite, and what happens when an animal is declared dangerous, will follow below.
