Accidents happen. No matter how careful you are, there’s always the chance that someone will slip and fall down in your store. If they’re injured, they could sue you for the damages and the lawsuit can easily cripple your business. For example, when a woman fell down in Costco in 2012, she won over $415,000 in her settlement. This is not something you want to pay for by yourself. We at the National Association for the Self-Employed have taken a look at this issue to help you figure out ways to protect your business from a costly lawsuit.
