It is quite possible that Kroger could be held liable for your Georgia slip and fall accident and injury. Maintaining their store and keeping their premises safe and free of hazards is their responsibility in order to keep customers safe. This includes cleaning up spills promptly and making customers aware of any spills. They can do this by placing warning or caution signs in front of the spill to warn everyone that comes into their supermarket of the dangerous, slippery floor.
When grocery stores fail to warn customers about wet, slippery floors or fail to clean up spills quickly to remedy the dangerous situations, they may be found negligent. Many people nationwide slip on freshly mopped floors because employees fail to post warning signs, or they fall because liquid spilled on the floor was not cleaned up.
If your slip and fall accident and knee injury was the result of a store’s negligence, you have rights. Some of the damages that you may be entitled to include:
- Medical expenses (both past and future)
- Hospitalization and surgical costs
- Physical therapy bills
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress and mental anguish
- Lost wages (both past and future)
When a company such as Kroger is negligent in creating a safe environment for its customers, you should file a claim for such damages and court costs. Call an experienced Peachtree City slip and fall lawyer at the Law Offices of Shane Smith today at 770-HURT-999 for a free consultation.
