Grocery Store Slip & Falls

Grocery Store Slip & Fall Attorney

Everyone goes to the grocery store. Whether we go to a small neighborhood store or a big supermarket in the outer boroughs, everyone needs to get food. Heavy foot traffic, weather and the nature of the grocery business means that there can be a lot of water and other liquids on the floors of stores where people buy food and other supplies. The slippery floors can cause customers to slip and fall. When a slip and falls occur because of another person’s negligence, injured people may be able to obtain compensation.

Causes and Consequences of a Slip and Fall

When store employees do not clean up product spills, snowmelt, rain or other liquids and when they forget to place warning signs when needed, the law can hold stores responsible for injuries suffered by customers who slipped and fell as a result of this negligence. The firm advocates for clients who slipped and fell in grocery stores who have experienced:

  • Broken bones
  • Sprains
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations from broken glass and other substances

In addition to wet floors, customers can slip and fall because of cracked or damaged floors, unsafe carpet, and uneven pavement/steps at the entrance or elsewhere. Store owners and operators who know of such conditions and fail to correct them can be held liable for injuries that occur due to their negligence.
