Slip and Fall at Publix Grocery Store Pompano Beach
Over the years since opening its doors, Publix supermarket has become a staple stop for many residents in Pompano Beach. With six locations to choose from in Pompano, residents and visitors are never far from a Publix, where they can pick up all their grocery needs. Known for their great deals, friendly service, and community work, it’s no wonder that Publix grocery store is a local favorite.
Publix, like other supermarkets, can become the setting of a slip and fall accident. These accidents can often result in injuries that are no fault of the victim. Guests who choose to visit Publix expect to shop in a hazard free environment where they, and their families, are safe. A slip and fall incident at a supermarket such as a Publix store can cause a victim injury, expensive medical bills and lost wages. In many slip and fall cases, the injury resulted from failure of the property owner or manager to clear or clean up a hazard in a timely fashion. If the accident was the result of negligence by an employee, store manager, or store owner, the victim should contact the legal team of Frankl & Kominsky for legal representation.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
- Boxes or other objects in the aisles
- Debris on the ground
- Stray shopping carts or baskets
Pompano Beach residents should be aware of these listed potential hazards. 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. However, if you have suffered a slip and fall at a Publix or any grocery store, ignoring the situation may not be beneficial. Instead, seek medical attention right away. Even if you believe you have not suffered any injuries, visit a medical professional, because the extent of injuries may not immediately be apparent. 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. Any injuries suffered by the victim of a slip and fall accident should be taken seriously, as they can result in costly medical bills, and lost wages.We’re Here to Help You
