The experienced Delray Beach personal injury attorneys at Frankl Kominsky are available to assist slip and fall victims try to receive the compensation they deserve.Publix and Slip and Fall
Grocery stores in Delray Beach, such as Publix, regularly experience large numbers of customers in their stores, and large numbers of products on their shelves. This combination can cause products to be knocked off shelves or out of bins, leading to spillage of liquids or other products into the aisles. These spills can cause customers and visitors to slip and fall and suffer injuries. There are numerous other hazards that can lead to slip or trip and fall. A Delray Beach customer can fall because of loose tiles or uneven or missing floor tiles, because of items left in the aisles, or because of display cases that protrude into the aisles. The area in front of the deli counter at grocery stores such as Publix can experience spills of oils or other products, which can also lead to a slip and fall.When is Slip and Fall the Fault of Publix?
The legal standard regarding slip and fall accidents states that if a hazard exists, and if the owner or manager knew of the hazard - or should have known of the hazard - and failed to correct it, they are negligent and are responsible for the slip and fall.
This can be a difficult standard to prove without the assistance of an experienced attorney. Many slip and fall victims initially fail to document the injury or identify witnesses, leaving a situation of "he said/she said," or the word of the victim against the word of the store.
