How To Win Your Personal Injury Case Against Kroger*

When you go to a grocery store, you expect to be safe. You expect the property to be free from dangers and properly maintained. If you suffer an injury while at a store, you can pursue a personal injury claim against the supermarket chain. Every store has a responsibility to maintain safe premises that are free from obstructions. If the grocery store breaches that duty, then they have acted negligently. If you have been hurt because of their negligence, you can pursue a personal injury claim against the store.

Personal Injury At Your Local Store

When you go to shop at any store, they owe you a duty or a responsibility to maintain safe premises. If you go on their property and suffer a fall because of their lack of maintenance or failure to keep premises clean and safe, then they are liable. This is where premises liability and negligence come into play. There are four elements of negligence, and if all four elements have been met and you can prove them, then you will have a successful personal injury claim.

For example, you were shopping when you slipped and fell on smashed fruit in the produce department. The grocery store owes you a duty to maintain safe premises. Their employees should have properly kept a lookout for such risks and cleaned up any spills. If they had gone to get a mop and cleaning items, they should have placed a worker there to warn customers until a “Wet Floor” sign to warn you could have been set up. By leaving the mess on the floor, they breached their duty, which is the second element of negligence.

The third element is showing that breach caused your slip and fall, which in this case, it obviously did. And then lastly, the fourth element is showing that you suffered your injuries – such as a broken arm and a herniated disc – because of the slip and fall in the grocery store.
