What to do if you slip and fall in a grocery store

Have you ever gone down an aisle in the grocery store where juice was spilled? Was it slippery or perhaps sticky? The manager of the store might not have known about it or maybe he just didn't have the time to clean it up. In any event, he has the duty to care for your safety, you the customer.

Depending on the circumstances, you, the customer, may be entitled to compensation if you are injured. Make sure you immediately alert the store manager of your fall; fill out an accident report. Don't forget to get the names and numbers of any witnesses that might have seen you fall. If you have a camera phone, take pictures of what caused you to fall. These suggestions will increase your chances of winning your claim.

Supermarkets are negligent if there is no warning sign to show the floor is wet or slippery, boxes are scattered all around, or if a sign or display falls on the customer.

If you slip and fall or if you are injured in a grocery store as a result of store negligence, you may be entitled to file a claim for compensation. Contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who is best suited to handle your case.
