Are Stores Always Responsible For a Slip and Fall Injury?
You should never suffer an injury while shopping for groceries. Unfortunately hazards lie around every corner at your local supermarket. Slip and fall injuries are particularly common. In fact according to the National Floor Safety Institute there are over 1 million visits to the hospital emergency room each year resulting from slips and falls. If you or a loved one fell on a slippery floor or tripped on torn carpet the store may be liable – but this is not automatic. Several forms of negligence can cause grocery store customers to slip and fall. Most common? Wet or slippery surfaces. Spilled foods and liquids cause hazards as do moisture from wet shoes or boots. Improperly maintained surfaces could also lead to accidents.
