Attorneys for People Injured in Grocery Stores
Supermarkets can be dangerous places if they are not properly maintained to prevent accidents and serious injuries. Supermarkets typically have hard tile floors, and there are many conditions that can cause people to slip and fall.
At the Seigel Capozzi Law Firm LLC, we help injured people in Passaic County, Bergen County and throughout northern New Jersey hold supermarkets accountable for negligent behavior that causes falls and other accidents. Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation with one of our experienced personal injury lawyers.
We are proud to say that we recovered a $7,900,000 premises liability settlement for a 14-year old Paterson resident.
Pursuing Compensation for Negligent Store Management
Supermarkets are full of potential hazards that can cause serious falls and other accidents. Among the most common types of hazards that supermarket owners and operators are responsible for avoiding are the following:
- Slippery liquids spilled on the floor
- Recently mopped areas without prominent warnings
- Improperly stacked items falling on customers
- Small items such as grapes falling on the floor
- Leaky refrigerator and freezer cases
- Spraying of produce without adequate mats on the floor
It is not reasonable to expect customers to constantly be on the lookout for these sorts of conditions. It is, on the other hand, reasonable to expect supermarket managers, who have to deal with these conditions on a daily basis, to guard against falls and other accidents by cleaning up messes and posting large warning signs.
Standing Up to Large Supermarket Companies
Supermarket chains like A&P, Foodtown, Stop & Shop and ShopRite know what they need to do in order to avoid causing falls and other injuries to their customers. When they fail to take the necessary steps, they should be expected to pay compensation.
Unfortunately, sometimes these companies will not take you seriously until you have an attorney with a strong track record of getting money damages for clients who have been injured in their stores. Contact us to work with an advocate who will stand up for your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve.
