Grocery stores need to clean up spills quickly

Grocery stores and supermarkets are the settings of many slip and fall accidents. Why is this? Since grocery stores carry a lot of products that span from powdered goods, to liquids, to pastes and jellies, to syrups and slippery cleaners, it means there are a lot of substances that can accidentally be spilled on to the ground. This could happen as the result of a sloppy shopper or because of a negligent employee.

At the same time, grocery stores are very busy and have a lot of different workers doing many different tasks at the same time. So they may not respond as quickly as they should to a spilled carton of milk or a leaky freezer that spills water onto the ground. These spills can go unnoticed by shoppers and other patrons, and when they slip and fall as a result of these spills, the injuries they suffer can be very serious.

Grocery stores are required to respond in a timely and efficient manner to any spill on their premises. If they fail to clean it up or put down safety signs that alert customers to the issue, then they run the risk of being sued by the injured party.

The injuries that can be suffered in a slip and fall incident are wide ranging. You could suffer debilitating back injuries. You could suffer broken bones or torn ligaments. You could suffer a brain injury. Slip and falls should never happen because the proprietors of the establishment should be responsible, alert and aware of any spill that happens on their premises. But this doesn't always happen.
