Highlighted Slip & Fall: Supermarket
One of the biggest culprits in supermarket related slip and fall cases is water tracked, dripped, or pooled on a tile floor. There are certain parts of the store where water or other tripping hazards are more likely:
- The produce
- The floral department
- The restrooms
- The ice case
Because these are areas collect water in the course of normal use the store needs to take preemptive measures to prevent accidents from taking place. Employees should make regular surveys of these high-risk areas to notice any pooled water and have it removed immediately.
Grocery stores have a responsibility to clean up trip and fall hazards like spilled products within a “reasonable” amount of time. If you can prove the spill was there for longer than is “reasonable” via photographic or anecdotal evidence from witnesses, you may be eligible to receive compensation for any injuries you sustained.
