What Causes Slip or Trip and Fall at grocery markets such as El Bodegon?

A slip and fall accident, also called a trip and fall accident, is a personal injury category of law whereby an individual literally slips or trips and falls and suffers injury due to negligence by a property owner or manager. The law requires the owners and/or managers of properties to keep these properties free of hazards, and to take action to rectify any problems that do occur in a timely manner. Delray Beach shoppers at any supermarket including El Bodegon Supermarket have the right to expect to shop in an environment that is not dangerous. If a supermarket fails to keep that commitment to the shopper, and that individual slips and suffers injury, the supermarket may be responsible.

Any number of issues can cause a slip and fall at a supermarket such as El Bodegon. For example, if produce falls from a shelf and lands in an aisle, a customer could slip on that product and fall. Likewise, spilled liquids that are not cleaned up in a timely manner can contribute to a fall by a Delray Beach customer. A shopper can also trip on displays that protrude into aisles, uneven or cracked flooring and pavement, loose floor tiles or carpet, or even carts abandoned in certain areas.
