Slip and Falls in Grocery Stores and Malls
Slip and falls are particularly common in grocery stores, and, to a lesser degree, in shopping malls. The flooring surface of grocery stores, which are more likely to have unattended spills, as well as the fact that pushing a grocery cart can sometimes obstruct the person’s view, are the primary reasons for falls in grocery stores. People may fall in a mall or other public spaces for a number of reasons, such as:
- Insufficient lighting;
- Uneven walking surfaces;
- Liquids spilled on the floor;
- Narrow, or extremely steep stairs;
- Cluttered floors;
- Torn carpeting;
- Recently mopped or waxed floors, or
- Items stacked in walkways.
When we walk in public places—or where we work—we deserve to be advised of hazards we might encounter. In some instances, the lighting in a shopping mall could disguise a hazardous condition; any changes in walking surfaces must be visible to the walker in public places. Should a pedestrian fall and strike a hard flooring surface with a fleshy part of the body the injuries may not be particularly severe, however when bones—or the head—connect with a hard floor, the resulting injuries can be grave.
Questions to Ask Following a Slip and Fall
There are several questions you will need to consider if you have been the victim of a slip and fall in the city of Denver:
- If a spill caused your fall was it there long enough for the property owner to have knowledge of it?
- Does a standard cleaning and maintenance schedule exist?
- Was your fall caused by poor lighting or other issues not addressed by the owner or manager of the public property?
- Were you paying attention at the time you fell?
- Would a reasonable person have been able to avoid the fall?
