Personal Injury in a Grocery Store

With summer in full swing, people in Austin, Tyler, and all across Texas are increasingly spending time out in the sun. They fill the long hours of the day with barbecue cookouts, picnics in the park, an afternoon on the lake, and more. Consequentially, to supply these outings, an increasing number of people are visiting grocery stores. As you navigate these buzzing hubs of activity, it is important to remember the risks to your safety and your rights if you suffer a personal injury.

Accidents in a Grocery Store

If you are not careful, a grocery store can be a hazardous place. For example, you might be injured by slipping and falling on floors that are wet, poorly lit, or uneven. In rarer cases, a personal injury can result from falling objects such as shopping signs, lights, or items stacked high on aisle shelves. Parking lots also contain hazards such as cracked or irregular asphalt and ice/snow that has been left sitting. Most personal injuries in grocery stores are minor, but severe cases might include head or neck damage, broken bones, or spinal cord injury.

Premises Liability and Negligence

Grocery stores are subject to premises liability, which states that, like any other public business, a store must keep their premises safe for their customers. If it is shown that the store knew about a hazard and failed to address it before you were injured, then you may be able to make a claim for negligence. For example, water might be left sitting on the floor for an unreasonable amount of time, causing customers to slip and fall. More serious issues might include poorly organizing items on a shelf, causing them to fall on a customer, or the store failing to repair structural defects in the building.

Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney

Filing a claim for negligence, especially for the parent companies controlling responsible for the small stores, can be a daunting and difficult task. Even without all of the paperwork, companies are known to fight back to keep as many pennies as they can in their pockets. Companies may outright deny your claim, or worse: swindle you into a settlement that is far less than what your rights demand. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help steer you through the complex legal process.
