Grocery store customers expect a few things from their favorite places to buy food and beverages, as well as other items such as health and beauty products. They expect their go-to stores for grocery items to honor the coupons cut out of weekly periodicals. Customers also expect to shop in clean stores that offer every product they have on their shopping lists. A common expectation that is often taken for granted is grocery store customers expect to be protected from any potential harmful incidents, such as a slip and fall that frequently occurs at busy grocery stores such as Publix.
As an employee-owned supermarket chain operating primarily out of Florida and Georgia, Publix is a popular grocery store known for its wide selection of produce and its detailed attention to delivering excellent customer service. Like other supermarket chains, Publix also is known as a venue where slip and fall accidents lurk around every corner of every aisle. From slipping on a spilled beverage to tripping over a bunched-up mat placed at the front entrance, Publix employees must be constantly alert to the potential danger of a slip and fall incident.
Unfortunately, not every Publix store does a good job of preventing the injuries sustained from a slip and fall incident. When a Publix grocery store fails to follow the duty of care doctrine, a customer who slips and falls at one of the supermarket chain’s stores might have a strong enough case to seek compensation that covers the costs associated with medical care. If you sustained one or more injuries as a result of a slip and fall at a Publix grocery store, you should contact a Publix slip and fall lawyer to determine whether you have a strong enough case to file a civil lawsuit that seeks monetary damages.
A slip and fall accident can cause physical harm that has a negative long-term impact on your life.
