Help, I Slipped on a Wet Floor at Winco*

When you go onto commercial property, you expect the premises to be properly maintained and free from obstacles and risks. If you go to the supermarket, they have a duty or a responsibility to ensure the property is safe for your presences. If you slip on a wet floor, you can file a personal injury claim to recoup compensation for the different damages and injuries that you suffered because of the incident that was a result of the grocery store's negligence.
