Slip and fall accidents can occur just about anywhere – at a neighbor’s house, office complex, supermarket, and other locations. However, grocery stores are one of the most frequent places where innocent customers get injured in slip and fall accidents. When someone is involved in a grocery store slip and fall accident in Georgia, many injuries could occur, including:
- Sprained ankles
- Broken ribs
- Hip fractures
- Broken arms and legs
- Knee injuries, such as ACL and MCL injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Facial injuries including a broken nose
- Head trauma and brain injury
Even fatal injuries have occurred in slip and fall accidents. Sadly, the majority of slip and fall accidents could have been prevented if the proper safety procedures were in place, repairs and maintenance occurred frequently, cleanup took place in a timely manner, and protocols were followed. If a grocery store such as Kroger or Wal-Mart failed to make sure their store was safe and hazard free, then they may be held responsible for your fall injuries.
