Q: Can we file a claim against a grocery store for injuries sustained from a slip and fall accident?
A: Yes, grocery stores and other businesses must either fix or warn their customers of dangerous conditions on the property that the supermarket either knows about or should know about after a reasonable inspection. If the supermarket or store fails to do so, then they may be liable for personal injury damages if a customer is injured on their property.
Grocery stores are often the sites of slip and fall accidents because they have a number of customers using the property throughout the day, they have lots of liquids and other slippery materials that occasionally accidentally spill, and their employees are often overworked and are not concentrating on safety during key moments during the day. Our office regularly represents people seriously injured at grocery stores. If you have been involved in a slip and fall accident, please contact us at 1-844-44EMBRY (1-844-443-6279) so that we can properly assist you with your case.
