Potential Hazards For Grocery Store Shoppers

There are numerous hazards for supermarket shoppers. These unsafe conditions are caused by various factors and can result in severe injury or worse. For example, victims of slip and fall accidents may sustain broken bones, back injuries, strains and sprains, soft-tissue damage, and even traumatic brain injuries. Some potential dangers at grocery stores include:

  1. Recently mopped floors, without any warning signs;
  2. Spilled food or liquid products that are not cleaned promptly;
  3. Loose rugs at store entrances;
  4. Inadequate lighting;
  5. Broken shelving or product displays;
  6. Heavy products placed on high shelves;
  7. Misplaced shopping carts or shopping baskets;
  8. Uneven floor surfaces;
  9. Refrigeration units that cause water to leak onto the floor; and
  10. Ice and snow buildup at store entrances or in parking lots.



Holding a Grocery Store Liable for Your Injuries

If a grocery store neglected its legal duty to keep you safe while shopping, the grocery store can be held financially accountable. The supermarket’s liability is based on premise liability, which means you have the burden of proof to show that the store was negligent. The key evidence in your injury claim is not the spilled milk on the floor; although that is important, rather, it is any proof that demonstrates that the grocery store or its employees did something careless or neglected to take action when necessary to prevent harm. To successfully prove that your accident resulted from the grocery store’s negligence, it is important to show the following:

Weight scale in grocery store
  1. The Store Owed You a Duty of Care: Grocery stores are required to make every reasonable effort to keep shoppers from getting injured. A grocery store’s premise consists of the entire store, the area encompassing the store, and the parking lot.
  2. Breach of Duty: The grocery store can be found negligent for doing nothing to remedy a dangerous condition that employees knew or should have known about. It is important to show that the company was given notice of the hazard yet failed to fix or clean it within a timely manner. Even if nobody told management about the dangerous condition, they are still required to inspect the store.
  3. Your Accident Occurred Because of the Breach: If employees failed to routinely check for spills and other unsafe conditions and one exists, and the owner had sufficient time yet neglected to remedy it, the grocery store can be held liable if the unsafe condition caused your accident.
  4. You Suffered an Actual Injury: Your accident at the grocery store must have caused a tangible injury.
