Lawyers For Slip And Fall Accidents In Supermarkets

Slip And Fall Accidents In Supermarkets & Grocery Stores

If you suffered injuries in a falling accident at a supermarket or grocery store, our slip and fall lawyers can help you fight for justice. But what does justice look like for the unsuspecting patrons whose lives were traumatized by a falling accident?

Supermarket Slip And Fall Lawsuits

Pursuing a legal claim such as a grocery store injury lawsuit can produce significant positive outcomes for the victims, even in the cases where the desired compensation is not achieved.

Any kind of lawsuit filed against a supermarket will cause them to take a hard look at themselves and their day-to-day operations. The specific incident will be extensively investigated and changes will likely be made to prevent it from occurring again.

Moreover, any other standard procedures which may be in place, and which are intended to ensure the health and safety of supermarket shoppers, may also be reviewed and scrutinized for oversights. Naturally, any issues that are uncovered will also be addressed. In this manner, the safety of grocery store shoppers who visit from that point forward can be guaranteed to a higher degree.

Ultimately, thanks to the scrutiny that a legal claim can bring, the safety of supermarket patrons as a whole is improved. Unfortunately, this does not provide guarantees to the victims of the original falling accident. Yet, this is exactly why our slip and fall attorneys in Maryland have dedicated their careers to this field of law - because someone has to stand by the side of victims and help them fight for justice and their deserved compensation.

Examples of Supermarket Slip & Falls

Our law office has handled supermarket falling injury cases for years. During that time, they've encountered many different cases that resulted in supermarket injury lawsuits being pursued. Here are some examples:

  • Customer slipped on vegetable that had fallen on the floor in the produce section. Anti-slip floor mats were not present in the area at the time.
  • A glass jar containing a liquid fell from a shelf and though the spill was cleaned, it was not done properly nor were caution signs placed. Shopper slipped on remnants of the spill and suffered a hip fracture.
  • Ice and snow were not properly cleared from the parking lot and area outside a grocery store. Patron slipped and fell while carrying bags back to their vehicle.
  • Floor tiles were improperly repaired in the aisle of a supermarket. The uneven surface caused an older shopper to trip and fall on the hard floor, suffering various fractures to the arms, wrists, and knees.

Our legal team always stresses the point that each injury claim is different from the next. However, a clear pattern can be seen in the above examples. The supermarket owner, manager, and staff were negligent in their duty of maintaining safe premises for shoppers and ultimately caused them harm, even though in an indirect fashion.

Fortunately, the state of Maryland grants injury victims with powerful legal pathways for achieving compensation to cover the damages suffered.

Compensation for Falling Accidents in Supermarkets & Grocery Stores

There are many different classes or types of damages that can be taken into account when the amount of compensation is calculated in a supermarket slip and fall lawsuit. Here are some of the most common:

  1. Surgery, hospital, and any physical therapy expenses that may be required for the victim to not only recuperate from their injury but return to their normal lives.
  2. Physical and emotional pain can result directly from the falling injury as well as from changes in lifestyle which are often required by a severe injury.
  3. Lost income due to the inability to perform physical tasks that are necessary for the completion of daily job duties. If the victim is permanently unable to return to work, then the loss of future wages may also be accounted for.
  4. Loss of enjoyment of life can be considered a valid damage if the injury is so severe that it permanently disfigures the victim and prevents them from engaging in activities that were commonplace before the incident.

These are only some of the damages that a legal claim can take into consideration. If you've been the victim of a supermarket slip, trip & fall, you may be entitled to much more. Contact our law office today for a free consultation and learn the true potential of your claim!
