Miami Grocery Store Lawyer

Grocery stores are possibly the most likely place any of us will be injured in a slip and fall, and not just because it is a store that most of us visit at least once a week. Grocery stores are jam packed with food and liquids, many of which are piled or stacked precariously for display purposes. Grocery stores have become increasingly difficult to navigate because of products being stacked in unconventional cardboard display shelves that are often placed in already narrow walkways. Lastly, grocery stores are often understaffed, meaning that spills and messes are often left for hours before someone gets around to cleaning them up. All of this makes grocery stores a hazard for shoppers focused on their grocery list or looking up at signs marking what aisle peanut butter is on. If you were injured in a grocery store slip and fall, our Miami grocery store lawyer here at Spencer Morgan Law is here to assist you in covering your damages.

Causes of Grocery Store Slip and Falls

Hazards that are likely to cause a slip, trip, and fall include the following:

  • Spilled liquids
  • Spilled food
  • Worn out, slippery flooring
  • Lack of caution signs after floor cleaning
  • Wet entranceway
  • Grease spills
  • Unclean flooring
  • Damaged flooring
  • No handrail
  • Damaged stairs
  • No caution sign or warning for a step up or step down
  • Overly crowded aisles due to poorly placed merchandise stands
  • Poor lighting
  • Uneven or uneven walking surface

By failing to clean, mark the hazard, or repair damaged flooring, the grocery store may be at fault for causing you to fall, and may be liable for your damages.

Circumstances Needed to Establish Grocery Stores Liability

Not every slip and fall is the fault of the store or property owner. In order for your claim to be successful, you must establish the following elements of your slip and fall case:

  1. A hazard existed
  2. The store owner or management knew or should have known about the hazard
  3. The grocery store had a reasonable amount of time to address the hazard, but failed to do so in a successful way
  4. You fell because of the hazard and were injured as a result
