A slip and fall at a supermarket such as Sam's Club by a Boca Raton resident or visitor would happen if a visitor slipped or tripped due to a hazard at the Sam's Club. The second part of the equation is that the owner or manager of the supermarket must have known about the hazard and failed to take action, or should have known about the hazard and failed to take action, leading to a situation where that owner or manager was negligent.
For example, if a customer at a supermarket like Sam's Club accidentally drops an ice cream cone near a sampling table, and another visitor slips and sustains injuries because of that ice cream spill, the supermarket may be liable. The question of negligence would likely depend on whether the spill was in an area where an employee saw the ice cream, or where an employee should have seen the ice cream, and failed to remedy the problem.Can You Really Get Hurt from a Slip and Fall?
