Slip and Fall at Fresh Market in Pompano Beach
Founded in North Carolina back in 1982, The Fresh Market grocery store has grown to a nationally-recognized brand. The Fresh Market has found its way to Pompano Beach, located on South Federal Highway, to serve residents and visitors. With a focus on supporting local growers and charities while also providing excellent customer service and high quality products at low prices, it’s no wonder that many Pompano residents choose to do their grocery shopping at The Fresh Market and are now lobbying for a second location.
Customers and guests who visit the supermarket for their grocery needs do not expect to be shopping in an environment that makes a slip and fall accident a possibility. Unfortunately, accidents and negligence do happen, and that can result in serious consequences. Injuries, lost wages, and expensive medical bills as well as a feeling of shame or embarrassment can all result from a slip and fall accident in a grocery store such as The Fresh Market. It is important to know that a competent and experienced personal injury lawyer can possibly mean the difference in winning your claim against the negligence of property owners and managers.Injuries Involved in a Slip and Fall Accident
