Retail Store Accident

Supermarket Displays and Injury Incident Attorneys

Our personal injury lawyers have seen shoppers become extremely embarrassed by slipping, tripping, or falling at their local supermarket or retail store.

Unfortunately, their first instinct is to jump up and brush off the uncomfortable occurrence before anyone else notices. What they do not know is, that getting hurt by disorganized supermarket displays, inventory littering the aisles, or spilled food or liquids on the floors is negligence.

More importantly, when they attempt to quickly recover from a slip, trip, or fall, they could be placing their physical well-being in increased danger.

How Negligence Leads to Supermarket Display and Injury Incidents

The Centers for Disease Control reported that one out of five falls causes a severe injury, such as broken bones or a head injury. Unfortunately, unsafe retail establishments are one of the leading causes of slip, trip, and fall injuries throughout the country.

When the business owner, operator, or management company fails to train their employees to prevent hazardous conditions, shoppers can suffer significant injuries without notice.

The most common causes of supermarket or retail displays and injury incidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Lack of proper lighting
  • Failed organization protocols and processes
  • Changes in curb or sidewalk heights
  • Crumpled carpets or rugs
  • Objects obstructing paths or walkways
  • Spilled food or drinks
  • Poorly designed and unsafe displays
  • Failing to address improperly placed or unsafe displays
  • Uneven or damaged floors or steps
  • Mopped or waxed floors without warning signs
  • Wet entrances from inclement weather

Supermarket and retail display incidents with injuries are common throughout the U.S., and the most common shoppers who are at risk for serious injuries are working-aged men and women. Not only are these individuals responsible for most of their household’s shopping needs, but they are also the ones who provide the incomes their families need to thrive.

When they are injured by dangerous conditions at a grocery store, retail outlet, restaurant, or another public place where the owner, operator, or management company has a duty of care to ensure their safety, their livelihoods are put at risk.

We want to help. If you have been hurt at a retail location, and your injuries are threatening your family’s income and well-being, you deserve to pursue justice for the negligent party’s actions or inaction that caused the incident.
