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.What to Do if You Slip and Fall
