Grocery Store and Supermarket Accidents
In California, when a person steps onto the premises of a grocery store, the store generally owes a duty of care to that person to make sure he or she is protected from known dangers on the property. If a person is injured because the store neglected its duty, then he or she can seek damages in a personal injury lawsuit. If you were injured while entering, exiting or shopping at a grocery store, you may have a premises liability case.
Injured Due to an Unsafe Store and Dangerous Condition?
Injuries due to dangerous conditions at a grocery store or supermarket can occur due to spilled liquids or other products, falling objects, poor lighting and cracks or gaps in the floor. Many times grocery stores can be negligent for failing to put up proper warning signs for slippery or dangerous conditions. If you have been injured due to a dangerous condition in a grocery store, you should try to file an accident report with the store manager. That way, the accident is on record. Also, if possible, try to take a photograph of the accident site.
