Last month, Attorneys Chris Dolan and Megan Irish published an article highlighting the concerning frequency of cars crashing into convenience stores. These storefront crashes are a known risk to stores and they can prevent them by installing bollards. This week, Christopher B. Dolan had the opportunity to discuss a case (Sisemore v. 7-Eleven) along with Robert Reiter, founder of Storefront Safety Council, highlighting the importance of storefront safety and how bollards can be extremely effective in preventing injuries or even death at convenience stores.

About The Case (Sisemore v. 7-Eleven):
On approximately May 31, 2019, Ms. Sisemore made a routine stop to get gas at a 7-Eleven station. The machine card reader at the pump would not read her card so she went in to pay. Unaware of what was going to happen, while she was paying for gas at the counter, a car crashed through the door and hit her while she was inside the 7-Eleven.
