Can I sue for a gas store for cutting my hand on their pump? 2 Answers as of November 10, 2016

I was getting ready to pump gas into my car. I put the nozzle in the car, pulled my hand back and cut it on something that looks like what they tried to fix on the nozzle. A little piece of metal was sticking up. I told a sales person. He came out and he had to tighten that yesterday.

Yes, you can sue. However, the heart of any lawsuit is the amount of damages. I suspect that a cut to the hand might not involve enough damages to interest an attorney in your case. You might begin by yourself making a written claim to the company and requesting compensation. If you do not get it you can then consider a lawsuit.

Yes, of course. You need photos to show it was hidden.
