Be Careful at the Supermarket

Grocery stores are essential buildings for a community to survive. Supermarkets can be found across cities as well as rural areas, and vary in company, size, capacity, and inventory. Market spaces also differ in functionality and style, as open-tent markets, flea markets, and even street carts can be subject to the same legal consideration as grocery stores under the law. With rising employment in grocery stores over the last ten years (Bureau of Labor Statistics), grocery stores are increasing in size and inventory. Grocery store buildings, with aisles and aisles of foods, drinks, and other household commodities, can often be difficult for store owners to maintain either a clean or a safe environment. That is why slipping and falling is the most common way to get injured when grocery shopping. People all across the world are victims of supermarket negligence, and the average cost of a slip and fall case exceeds well over $12,000.

These causes of injuries are universal among premises of any kind, however, supermarkets, with their wide array of materiality, large size, and high foot traffic, are especially prone to these injury-causing dangers. The supermarket industry, which makes an average of $ 500 Billion in yearly profits, spends half a Billion a year defending slip & fall cases (National Floor Safety Institute).

What To Do If Injured in a Supermarket

If you or somebody you know was unfortunate enough to sustain an injury while grocery shopping, it is crucial you seek appropriate medical and legal aid in your case. Supermarket floors can be rather hard, and if you happen to suddenly slip, you could be hitting that hard floor at a high speed which often breaks bones and dislocates hips. If you go down in a supermarket, yell for help from an employee, and have them or somebody near you dial 911. Supermarket employees have a duty to ensure that their store is a safe environment for shoppers, and if somebody suffers an injury they might have a case against the proprietors for negligence. After receiving the proper medical care, you should then dial our offices. Avoid signing any contracts, documents, or statements by the supermarket or grocery store until speaking with an attorney at our firm to ensure your interests are being upheld.
