Slip and Falls in Grocery Stores

Most of us go to the grocery store without a second thought about our safety. Unfortunately, the reality is that grocery stores can be full of potential injury hazards down every aisle. With thousands of products moving in and out of the store daily and plenty of liquid items to spill, slip and fall accidents are of particular concern. Thankfully, when victims slip, trip, or fall due to the negligence of grocery store staff, they can typically recover compensation under Florida law.

At Quattrochi & Torres, we are committed to protecting the rights of the injured. To schedule a free case evaluation, call our office today.

When Do Slip & Fall Accidents Result in Legal Claims?

Not every slip, trip, or fall gives victims the right to file a claim. In order for them to recover compensation, the accident must have been someone else’s fault. In other words, if you tripped over your own shoelaces, you will likely not have a claim. On the other hand, if you slipped on a banana peel that had been left on the floor, you likely will have a claim.

Some examples of causes of slip and falls that would probably entitle you to compensation include:

  • Inadequate lighting
  • Slippery floors
  • Exposed electrical cords or other cables
  • Debris in walkways
  • Unmarked hazards
  • Liquid spills
  • Cracked or uneven flooring

Slip and fall accident cases can be extremely complicated, and there are many factors that can determine whether you have a claim. For this reason, you should always have a slip and fall attorney review the facts of your case.
