Slip and Fall at Walmart Supermarket Pompano Beach
Like residents and visitors throughout South Florida, many in Pompano Beach seek out Walmart supermarkets for one-stop shopping. Pompano Beach residents have a choice of three local Walmart Supermarkets with a full range of products, allowing them to complete their shopping in one place. Those in Pompano have their choice of two Walmart Supercenter stores and one Walmart Neighborhood Market grocery store. At Walmart, shoppers are welcomed with a wide variety of groceries, electronics, and pet necessities, along with many other choices and categories of goods. With Walmart Supermarket’s wide variety, Great Value house brand, late hours, and low prices, it’s no wonder that Walmart is a top choice for Pompano Beach residents.
Like Publix, Winn Dixie and other supermarkets in the area, Walmart Supercenters and Walmart Neighborhood Markets are sometimes the sites of slip and fall accidents. These accidents, while easily preventable, often lead to serious injuries, lost wages, and the overbearing weight of medical bills.

Generally speaking, if a slip and fall accident occurs due to the negligence of an owner, manager, or employee of the Walmart Supermarket or Walmart Neighborhood Market, or any other supermarket chain, then that individual or corporation is liable and therefore must pay damages to the injured victim.
Just like with any commercial property, for the owner, managers, or employees of Walmart to be held responsible they must meet one of the following criteria:
- They knew about the potential hazard or issue and did nothing to correct it
- They caused the problem that resulted in the slip and fall accident
- They should have known about the problem as soon as it arose and took steps to fix it before it resulted in an accident
There are unintentional situations that may occur in a Walmart Supermarket or Neighborhood Market or any other supermarket chain, that can result in a slip and fall accident. Stray shopping carts or loose/raised or holes in the pavement in the parking lots, displays that protrude into walking aisles, boxes or merchandise lying in the aisles, and broken or spilled food products on the floors are just a few examples of potential hazards in supermarkets like Walmart Supermarkets that can result in a slip and fall accident and lead to injuries.Call Frankl & Kominsky
