Grocery Stores and Their Duty to Customers
Like all businesses that open themselves up to the public, grocery stores must maintain reasonably safe premises for the safety of their customers. If a grocery store’s failure to exercise this duty results in accidental injury to a customer, the store may be held liable for resulting injuries. However, the victim must be able to show that their injury incident was directly tied to unsafe conditions on the premises of the store.
Common Grocery Store Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents
In order to establish you injury claim, you must be able to identify the cause of the accident. Here is a list of the most common types of grocery store slip and fall accidents, one of which might apply to your case:
- Accumulation of slick snow or ice in the entry way
- Slightly upraised floor mats and uneven surfaces that pose a trip hazard
- Spilled drinks in the aisle
- Floor wax, polish or other slippery substance
- Food debris and other objects
Establishing the following facts are necessary to proving liability in a grocery store accident claim case:
- The accident was directly caused by a hazard on the premises of the store;
- The owner either created the hazard which led to the accident, or knew of the hazard but failed to address it in a reasonable manner; and
- The hazard was not so open and obvious that the victim could have taken steps to avoid it.
You may need written reports, witness accounts and other pieces of evidence to back up your claims. A resourceful attorney can help you gather the necessary documentation.
