Woman files premises liability lawsuit against grocery store

When customers walk into a business in Fulton County, Georgia, they likely aren’t thinking about whether or not they will be safe inside. After all, it is the responsibility of business owners to ensure that their customers have a safe place to shop free from the potential of harm or injuries befalling them. This includes owners taking care of potential safety hazards in a timely manner and ensuring that all store fixtures are secure.

Had a grocery store done this, a customer most likely could have avoided an injury. Instead, the woman was disabled when she slipped and fell on an unknown substance on the floor. The woman was walking in a lottery line when she evidently stepped in the substance and fell to the ground. She sustained injuries to her right hand, left leg and back.

She filed a premises liability lawsuit against the grocery store recently in which she claims that the store was negligent in providing a safe place for her to walk and that the managers did not take the proper steps necessary to inspect and ensure the premises was free from potential hazards. She is suing for over $50,000 in compensation for her pain and suffering and medical expenses.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of a store owner in Fulton County, you may be entitled to compensation. You would be well advised to consult with a personal injury attorney about your accident to determine if you have a case.
