With a plethora of locations in and around the Boynton Beach area, residents are never far from one of the many Publix supermarket stores or the Publix Distribution Center.
Publix, like other supermarkets, can become the site of slip and fall accidents. These slip and falls can cause injury to customers of the grocery store. Guests who visit Publix or other supermarkets expect a hazard and danger free environment while they shop, however accidents do happen. These accidents can often lead to injuries, expensive medical bills, and lost wages due to taking time off from work. In these cases, the property owner or manager may be the ones responsible, not the victim. The personal injury attorneys at Frankl & Kominsky are available to provide legal assistance for your slip and fall claim.Potential Supermarket Hazards
Slip and fall accidents within a grocery store can be caused by a number of factors including, but not limited to:
- Loose mats or pavement in the parking lot
- Wet floors with no caution signs
- Broken or spilled food products
- Displays protruding into the aisles
- Debris on the ground
- Stray shopping carts

The property owner or manager should also be aware of these hazards and should take the proper precautions in order to fix them to prevent any incidents involving guests of the store. Slip and fall accidents often get brushed off by the victim because they may feel embarrassed, but do not do this. Seek the proper medical attention right away if you or someone you know has been involved in a slip and fall accident, even if you don’t think you have suffered any injuries as they may not appear immediately. Slip and fall accidents can cause bruising, cuts, scrapes, muscle tears, fractures and/or broken bones, and even short/long term medical conditions such as a concussion, internal bleeding, or head trauma.
