Did you know that grocery stores intentionally design their floors to make it hard to see spills? Grocery stores know that if you can see stuff on the floor – spills, debris, whatever – you will know the store is not clean. People don’t like dirty stores and so they won’t shop there. In short, stores make their floors a drab grey or beige so they can make more money.
If you slip and fall at a grocery store, chances are that the spill was almost impossible to see.
After any fall, you should immediately report it to the store. Take pictures of the debris or liquid and ask that the spill be cleaned up. Ask the store manager if there is video in the store and, if so, ask for a copy. And ALWAYS get the medical attention you need.
Slip and falls at grocery stores present unique problems. At Dixon Law Office, we have obtained millions-of-dollars in compensation for victims of falls in stores. In fact, in July we obtained a $900,000 settlement for one client who fell in a store. We have the experience to hold the store accountable and get you or your loved on the compensation you deserve.
