Supermarkets and Retail Store Accidents

 

A woman slips, falls and breaks her hip as a result of sliding on a bunch of grapes that had fallen to the floor while a worker was loading them in the produce department or they were selling the grapes out of an open bin; the worker was careless, and neglected to pick them up from the floor. The injured victim had a full cart, and therefore could not have been expected to see the grapes on the floor as she passed over them.

Accidents in supermarkets and retail stores regularly occur. Most common among these are slip and fall-type accidents. In fact, slips and falls account for approximately 9 million ER visits each year. They caused over 25,000 deaths in 2009, as well.

When standard safety precautions are not followed in retail establishments, supermarket and retail store accidents can happen. When customers or others are injured in accidents such as these, a premises liability claim may be filed against the supermarket or retail storeowners or managers to pay for medical costs and other accident-related damages.

When you go shopping, you are not expecting slippery floors, obstacles in the aisles, runaway shopping carts, or other potential hazards that can lead to a fall. But unfortunately, storekeepers and their employees sometimes fail to keep things safe for their customers. If you have suffered injury as a result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness,when they should have known better, consider discussing your rights with an experienced premises liability attorney in New Jersey
