Spilled Food and Beverages in Grocery Stores
When customers are shopping through stores, it is almost inevitable that they will knock things off shelves. Small children pick up glass bottles that are too heavy to hold. Purses bump products, spilling the contents onto the grocery store floor. Employees stocking shelves too quickly make a mess. In some situations, customers alert store owners to the problem, but not always. When the business owner does not act quickly enough to clean the spill or warn its customers of the mess, people are likely to slip and fall, sometimes injuring themselves seriously. If a store owner fails to remedy a condition they know about, or should have known about, they can be liable for your injuries.
Accidents in Parking Lots
In addition to keeping the inside of stores well maintained, property owners are also expected to keep the parking lot safe for customers. Ice and snow should be removed or treated in a timely manner. If there are large potholes or other defects in the pavement, they should be fixed or adequate warning signs should be put up in the meantime.
