Slip and Fall at El Bodegon Supermarket in Boca Raton

Boca Raton residents and visitors interested in shopping at El Bodegon Supermarket can visit the location in Lantana, Lake Worth, or Green Acres, as well as several other El Bodegon stores around the area. All El Bodegon locations advertise fresh produce year-round, as well as a large bakery, a meat department that carries a large variety of cuts of meat, and a seafood department. In addition, El Bodegon provides cargo shipping and money transfers to Boca Raton and other shoppers. El Bodegon advertises a special commitment to meeting the needs of the Latin community in South Florida, but notes that its large stock of grocery supplies and low prices are aimed at all South Florida shoppers.

Supermarkets like El Bodegon and others can also be the setting of a slip and fall or trip and fall accident. Because El Bodegon is a grocery store, it could be the location of a slip and fall because of the large number of visitors that come through the door. If you or another Boca Raton shopper have been involved in a slip and fall accident, take it seriously, and call the legal team at Frankl & Kominsky for help.

What are the Potential Hazards at El Bodegon?

Shoppers who enter an El Bodegon Supermarket are met with a variety of options for products. Fresh fruits and vegetables are in the produce section, dairy products in the refrigerated section, and even a large buffet of ready-made food items is available for Boca Raton shoppers. While this variety is appealing, like all grocery stores, it can also lead to hazards for shoppers at El Bodegon.

One of the main potential hazards for Boca Raton shoppers at supermarkets like El Bodegon is water or another liquid spilled on the floor of the store. Clear liquids, such as water, detergent, or grease, may be difficult for a shopper to detect, and can easily lead to a slip and fall accident. Other products, such as produce or candies, can also create a danger when they spill out of containers and into the aisles where shoppers can slip or trip and fall. Additionally, like all grocery stores, product displays themselves at El Bodegon can possibly create a hazard if they extend out into the walking area or if a piece of the display causes a shopper to slip or trip.

Actions After a Slip and Fall

If you or another Boca Raton resident suffer a slip and fall at supermarket, like El Bodegon or others, avoid the temptation to brush it off as insignificant. Take a moment to assess your injuries, and seek medical attention if necessary. A fall can cause serious damage. You also should identify the reason for the fall and, if possible, take a photo or other documentation of that hazard. If you slip on a wet floor, use your smartphone to take a photo of that situation. Also, document the slip and fall with the store employee or manager, and if there were witnesses to the accident, obtain their contact information so you or your attorney can get in touch with them later.
