Have You Been Injured In A Grocery Store?
Grocery stores are responsible for cleaning up spills or removing obstacles that might cause their customers harm. If you are injured in the store or on the store property and the company or one of its employees has acted negligently, the company may be held accountable for your injuries.
At Gregory S. Young Co., LPA, we help people pursue premises liability and slip-and-fall claims and lawsuits in Ohio and Northern Kentucky. Our law firm has been owned and run by the same family for three generations. During that time, we have earned the trust of our community and the respect of our peers through hard work, getting results and offering excellent service.
Reasons For Grocery Store Liability
Grocery stores, like all commercial properties, are required by law to maintain safe premises for their customers. If a spill, an obstacle or any condition that may result in harm to an individual is not marked, repaired or cleaned up, the store may be liable for injury to a customer. The store must be aware of the problem, for instance, if a spill occurs and you slip in the puddle immediately after, the store is not liable.
Common problems in grocery stores that cause hazards are:
- Leaky freezers
- Leaky coolers
- Leaky ceiling
- Damaged pavement
- Damaged asphalt in the parking lot
