How do grocery store accidents happen in Florida?

There are a number of different causes of grocery store accidents in Florida, however, they are all typically the result of store owner negligence. Our attorneys have seen these accidents that have been a direct result of:

  • Slip and fall accidents as a result of spills in aisles or restrooms that have been left unattended
  • Unsteady displays
  • Trip and fall accidents, often due to poorly placed, or missing floor mats
  • Poor lighting
  • Defective automatic entrance and exit doors
  • Loose produce or items falling from shelves
  • Spoiled food left for innocent customers to purchase or sample

If you were injured in a grocery store as a result of any of the above instances of negligence, do not wait to reach out to our skilled Florida personal injury attorneys. Our firm is committed to ensuring that our clients receive the compensation they need to feel whole again.

Can I take legal action for a supermarket accident?

It is important to understand that grocery store owners and employees have a duty to ensure that their property is safely maintained. This indicates that store owners and employees must make regular checks on their store so that it is free of hazards. If frequent searches are not done, serious injury can occur. In the event that these checks are not made, and a customer is injured, the property owner can be held liable for negligence.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Florida?

Personal injury claims are time-sensitive, which is why you will need to ensure that you file your claim promptly. Florida has a statute of limitations of four years for most personal injury claims. This means that if you did not file your grocery store accident claim within four years from the date of its occurrence, you will likely lose the chance to recover the compensation you deserve. Reach out to our firm today to retain the services of an attorney that can help ensure that your claim is being punctually filed.
