Grocery Store Slip And Fall Lawyer

Grocery stores in Texas are responsible for maintaining a safe environment for their customers. They should not put your safety at risk just because they are more concerned with the profit margin. When grocery stores don’t maintain their facilities and you are injured as a result, attorneys in Texas who specialize in premises liability can help you get the compensation you deserve. Slip and falls are a major source of injury in grocery store settings. 

It is almost impossible to achieve a successful settlement on your own for claims involving severe injuries or wrongful death against a grocery store. You don’t have the time or resources to deal with the insurance company on your own, especially if it’s a complex or costly claim.

Texas Personal Injury Lawyers can assist you with your case. Call (888) 997-2148 for a free consultation to talk about your personal injury case. There is no obligation and there is no cost in finding out what our experienced personal injury lawyer may do for you.

When Can I Sue A Grocery Or Retail Business?

Grocery and retail shops are responsible for the safety of everyone who visits their premises. They must maintain the security of their business for all customers. As a business that is accessible to the general public, they have an obligation not only to keep any hazards they themselves create safe; they also have a duty to assess the property on a regular basis in order to discover and eliminate all dangers, such as wet entryways or spills. Workers and managers must take precautions to protect visitors from all hazardous situations that they should be aware of or should know about, such as wet or slippery floors, fractured floors, broken escalators, uneven walking surfaces, or any other tripping or slipping danger. When a hazard exists, the store must act to make it safe or sufficiently warn customers (such as by barricading the hazardous area with a clearly-marked “wet floor” sign). The burden of proof is on the plaintiff to show that the business failed in its duty.

The most frequent types of premises liability claims against grocery and retail establishments in Texas are slips, trips, and falls. Slip, trip, and fall accidents may be triggered by a variety of threats, but the most common reason is due to poor supervision. The following are some of the most prevalent slip and fall incidents in supermarkets and food stores:

  • Wet floors
  • Slick or Slippery surfaces
  • Puddles in refrigerated and frozen sections
  • Leaking or spilt products
  • Unsafe product displays, stocking or shelving
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Uneven floors, broken floor tiles
  • Products in the aisles

Holding A Grocery Store Liable For Your Injuries


A grocery store can be held financially accountable if it neglected its legal duty to keep you safe while shopping. The supermarket’s liability is based on premises liability, which implies that you have the burden of proof to demonstrate that the business was at fault. The most crucial evidence in your accident case isn’t the spilt milk on the floor; rather, it’s any proof that shows the store or its employees were careless or failed to take action when required to prevent injury. In order to successfully demonstrate that your accident was caused by the grocery store’s negligence, you must provide the following:

  1. The Store Owed You A Duty Of Care:

     Grocery shops are responsible for making every effort to keep customers from getting injured. A grocery store’s premises includes the entire business, the surrounding area around it, and the parking lot.

  2. Breach Of Duty:

     The grocery store may be held liable if it fails to take action to correct a hazardous situation that employees were aware of or should have been informed about. It’s critical to establish that the firm was notified of the hazard but failed to repair or clean it in a timely manner. Even if no one informed management about the hazardous situation, they must still inspect the store.

  3. Your Accident Occurred Because Of The Breach:

     If an employee fails to check for spills and other dangerous conditions on a regular basis, and one exists, and the owner had enough time but didn’t act, the grocery store may be held responsible if you were injured as a result of the hazardous situation.

  4. You Suffered An Actual Injury:

     You must have been injured as a result of an accident at the grocery store.

What Should I Do If I Slip Or Fall In A Grocery Store?


If you fall and hurt yourself on grocery store property, you must safeguard your health and legal right to compensation.

Follow these 7 steps as soon on as possible after your accident:

  • Seek medical attention
  • Request to see a store supervisor
  • File an incident report 
  • Document evidence through notes and photographs
  • Request copies of surveillance camera footage
  • Collect contact information from witnesses

If you are able to show that store personnel or property owners were negligent in some manner, they may be held liable for your injuries. As a result, they might seek to reduce the situation or shift responsibility for the accident onto you. The following are some of the most important elements of your personal injury claim: medical reports, incident records, photographic evidence, and witness testimonies.
