A slip and fall, or trip and fall, accident at a Trader Joe's near West Palm Beach or another grocery store can happen in almost any aisle of the store, or even in the parking area. Grocery stores are particularly dangerous locations for a slip and fall accident because there are so many hazards that can occur quickly, and there is often limited staff to address the problems when they do occur.
The parking areas for Trader Joe's near West Palm Beach and other grocery stores is often full of cars and drivers angling for spaces and trying to get in and out. In this hustle, stray carts, broken pavement, and uneven sidewalks can create dangers for customers.
Inside the store there are also numerous potential hazards that can lead to a West Palm Beach shopper slipping and suffering injury. While shopping, a customer is likely looking at shelves and displays, and may fail to notice that the rubber matting in the produce section has come apart, creating an uneven floor situation and a hazard. They may slip on an orange that has fallen off a shelf and burst open, or they could trip over a end-cap display that is placed awkwardly and has a frame that juts into the aisle.
It is the responsibility of the store to keep these hazards from occurring, and to correct a problem if it does occur.What to do in a Slip and Fall?
