Slip and Fall Law: Do I Have a Case If I Fell in a Supermarket

Simply falling or getting injured in a supermarket does not automatically give rise to liability or fault.  Instead, in order for the supermarket to be responsible for your injuries, two things must be true: 1. You were hurt when you fell in the supermarket: Simply falling does not mean you have a viable slip and fall claim.  Fortunately, people fall all the time and are able to regroup without any lingering pain or injury.  However, because of the slippery surface and the fact that supermarkets generally have hard or concrete flooring and is surrounded by large and heavy objects, supermarket slip and falls commonly lead to serious injuries.  The most common slip and fall injuries in supermarkets are:

  • Brain injuries and concussions – sometimes, brain injuries are not immediately noticeable, but may manifest themselves days or even weeks later.  Signs of brain injuries are constant headaches, memory loss, seizures or confusion
  • Broken bones and spinal cord injuries
  • Broken teeth
  • Twisted ankle
  • Back and neck injuries

2. The supermarket was in some way negligent, and their negligence caused an injury – Generally, one of three things must have happened:

  1. The supermarket through one of its employees caused the spill or created the dangerous environment which led to the slip and fall
  2. The supermarket knew about the dangerous conditions but failed to take any steps to fix it.
  3. The supermarket should have known about the dangerous condition.  The test for this is whether it was  reasonable for the supermarket to know about a potentially dangerous atmosphere.  Because it usually impossible to determine who caused the dangerous condition or whether the supermarket knew about it, slip and fall accidents commonly hinge on this requirement.  Proving whether the supermarket should have known requires skill and can be quite difficult.  Common questions to ask are:
  • How long was the liquid or other substance on the floor?
  • Was a regular inspection of the premises conducted?
  • How reasonable was it for the supermarket to know or not know about the dangerous condition

Supermarket Slip and Fall Settlement Amounts

Clients commonly ask us how much a supermarket slip and fall case is worth.  The value of a slip and fall lawsuit is based on several factors such as:

  • The severity and type of injury
  • The amount of pain and suffering
  • How long will you be unable to perform your regular duties?
  • Amount of income lost, both past and present.
  • How much less will you make in the future as a result of your injuries?
  • Past medical bills
  • Future medical care

With so many variables, it’s easy to see why no two supermarket slip and fall cases are the same.  It is the job of a personal injury attorney to maximize the amount of compensation by proving these damages.

What Should I Do After a Supermarket Slip and Fall Accident

Obviously, the most important thing to do after a slip and fall is to seek immediate medical attention.  No amount of money in the world can ever replace a person’s health.  However, once the dust has settled, it is important to take several key measure in order to prove your case.  These measures include: 1. Report the accident  – Make sure to also get a copy of the report, if possible. 2. Take pictures or other evidence that could prove fault – you or a friend should document how the fall occurred and take as many pictures as necessary.  Also, see if there were any witnesses to the accident and get their information as well. 3. Never make any comments – other than making a report, do not make any comments to anyone following the accident 4. Ask for the store video or make sure the video is preserved – Ideally this should be done by your attorney immediately, as these videos can be the best evidence that the supermarket was negligent.  Supermarkets unsurprisingly often destroy this evidence in the face of litigation.
