While completely preventable, some accidents can become serious and result in many hardships for the victim. Victims of slip and fall accidents can end up needing extensive medical care and can lead to expensive medical bills and lost wages.Who is Liable in a Slip and Fall?
According to the law, property owners and managers are required to keep the premises and properties safe for customers and guests. This means that the managers and owners of supermarkets such as Trader Joe’s in Delray Beach must maintain the property under certain conditions so that it is not a dangerous environment to others. These conditions include maintaining the parking lot so that it is free of stray shopping carts and loose pavement or of any other potential hazards. It also means ensuring that aisles within the store itself are clear of objects and food or liquid spills that may cause a patron to fall and injure themselves. If the property owners or managers fail to maintain a safe shopping environment for guests, then they can legally be held liable in the event of a slip and fall accident that may occur.Frankl Kominsky Are Available to Help
