I Fell at the Supermarket and was Injured. What Should I Do?

slip and fall accidents

Slip and fall accidents are by far the most common claims in premises liability law suits. If you have suffered a serious injury in a slip and fall accident due to property that was not maintained in a safe condition, you may be eligible for financial compensation from the negligent property owner, business owner, or lease holder. At Naftulin and Shick, PC, we will listen to you, evaluate the case, and provide you with a knowledgeable explanation of your rights and options.


Timing is critical in these cases. It is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible, before the evidence is cleaned up or the property is repaired.

Slip and fall injuries are often caused by a slippery or sticky foreign substance on the floor or ground. Trip and fall accidents can occur from unmarked uneven surfaces, unmarked step downs, holes in the walking surface, or defects in the floor, stairs, or stairways. Falls as the result of water, ice or snow, changes in flooring, poor lighting, a broken stair, missing handrail, or a hidden hazard, such as a gap or a hole, can cause serious injuries, such as a brain or spinal cord injury. In some instances, hazards may not be apparent, such as flooring which appears normal, but is slippery. It could be a long-standing condition, like broken concrete with a change in elevation, or temporary, such as leaking water from a refrigerator unit or a liquid spill in a supermarket aisle. Generally, the law provides for compensation for preventable accidents.
