GROCERY STORE SLIPPED FELL ACCIDENT INJURY
Our attorneys have received a surprising numbers of calls recently from people who slipped and fell or tripped and fell in an accident at the grocery store. An injury at the grocery store can happen just like anywhere else. However, there are many opportunities to be injured while you shopping. If the store mops the floor without putting out a wet floor sign, or there is a spill of something greasy that the store doesn’t cleanup, a customer can fall and be injured.
Other types of grocery store accidents our lawyers have handled include tripping on an empty pallet that was left in an aisle, and having a product fall off of a shelf and hitting a customer. We have even had slip fall cases where someone slipped because of a crushed grape in the produce area.
Our Minnesota attorneys are experienced with trip fall and slip fall cases at a grocery store, but they can be difficult cases to win in Minnesota. The store is not automatically responsible just because you were injured their property. They are only responsible if they did something wrong or negligent that caused the accident. However, their insurer will usually argue that you should have watched where you are going. Proving the store is at fault can be difficult and requires careful discussion and investigation of the facts of the slip fall accident.
