The term "slip and fall" is used in personal injury cases and categorized under premises liability. It means that someone has slipped or tripped on the property that belongs to someone else, that is maintained by someone else and is now suffering from some type of injury due to negligence of those owners. Victims of a slip and fall accident are often able to receive compensation for losses and medical bills due to the accident.
A slip and fall at a Trader Joe’s, or any other supermarket chain, can happen for a variety of reasons. Failure to clean up a spill, broken or cracked flooring or asphalt, spilled food items, and items or displays in the middle of aisles, are just a few of the things that can eventually lead to a customer slipping and falling on the store property. In these cases, owners or managers should have been fully aware of these conditions, and should have taken proper precautions to handle them in order to prevent an accident or injury. If an owner or manager knew about these hazards previously and did nothing to correct them, then they are legally responsible if a guest of the store slips or trips and falls and gets injured.Call Frankl Kominsky
