Grocery Store Accidents In Southern California
Shopping in a grocery store is an everyday activity that we all have to do. When you go to the grocery store, you certainly do not expect to leave it injured. Grocery store slip-and-fall accidents are a common occurrence, however, and they can result in serious injuries. Grocery stores owe their customers protection from injury while on their property. When they fail to protect their customers, they can be held liable. At Martinez & Schill LLP, we are skilled in handling cases that involve premises liability, the responsibility of a property owner for what occurs on his or her property. We fight for our clients’ rights to be fully compensated for their injuries.
Common Grocery Store Accidents And Injuries
Slip-and-fall accidents are the most common grocery store accidents. With so many liquid products on the shelves, spills are almost ubiquitous. When spills are not cleaned up immediately, shoppers can easily slip and fall. San Diego slip-and-fall accidents can result in serious injuries, including brain injuries, broken bones, neck and back injuries, sprained ankles and wrists, and more. Customers can also sustain injuries when objects fall on them from elevated shelves. Depending on the size and weight of the object, this can also cause serious injuries.
Some grocery store accidents occur before the customer has entered the store or after the customer has left the store. Customers are sometimes hit by cars or errant shopping carts while still in the store’s parking lot. The supermarket may be at least partly liable for this accident because it occurred on its property. Stores may also be held liable for crimes that occur on their property if it is shown that they did not provide sufficient security or lighting. Our attorneys are skilled in identifying who is at fault in grocery store accident cases and aggressively pursuing compensation.
