The Hidden Dangers At Supermarkets
At first glance, it might not be apparent that a supermarket is a potentially dangerous place when it comes to being injured. However, because of the services they provide and the layout of their stores, grocery stores could be a breeding ground for hazards.
Some of these could include:
- Wet floors: Slip-and-fall accidents could occur from unattended spills, either from shoppers or from employees. Refrigerator or freezer sections also could develop leaks, leading to conditions that could lead to slip-and-fall injuries. In the winter, people entering the store could track in snow and ice, which could melt and lead to slippery conditions. The stores could be held liable for damages if, for example, it is shown that employees were aware of wet floors but did not act to fix the problem.
- Falling objects: Merchandise that is not properly displayed could fall from a shelf, leading to the possibility of injury. Even objects that are relatively light may have sharp corners or break upon impact.
- Unsafe displays: Products that are presented in ways that lead to items jutting into walkways could be tripping hazards.
