While Publix is ordinarily a meticulous and safe supermarket, no store or team member is perfect, and incidents take place. If you were hurt on the property of Publix, you may have a claim for compensation for your personal injuries, pain and suffering, and lost incomes.

Publix has a duty to its customers to keep its facilities safe. If Publix recognized or should have known of a dangerous condition and did not take the proper actions to fix the issue or alert you of the threat, you may have a case.

A lot of the claims against Publix are from slip and falls. And, most often, it is water on the ground that leads to the fall. Falling on the hard concrete floorings at Publix pretty much always causes a harmful injury. A number of our clients have broken a wrist, injured a knee or back, and even had a hamstring injury when their legs go out from underneath them.

 

Actions to Take Following a Personal Injury in a Publix Grocery Store

Sources of water on the ground can derive from practically anywhere. If you have been in a slip and fall at Publix, you must do your very best to establish where the water originated from. Was a cooler leaking onto the ground? Did somebody drop ice and it melted? Was the entrance or exit slippery from the rain that was tracked into the grocery store from customers or from shopping carts? Whatever you can learn about the source will help your lawyers determine the applicable level of fault against Publix.

I spoke of in the above about water accumulate from rain at the entry or exits. I have also experienced some consumers leave behind soaked umbrellas that drip water onto the floor in this particular same area. There are carpeted mats at the entry to every store for the goal of doing away with water. But, the mats are not ideal and the water still gets tracked into the concrete floor. The mats do little for actually drying out the water off of shoes. It is this area of the store where we see most of the slip and falls. If Publix has not taken actions to wipe or mop down the area or post caution signs, then you will likely have a claim. I fairly recently had a case where the security guard was standing in the entrance only feet away from a wet floor. He took no actions to caution anyone that water was accumulating from rain being tracked inside. As my client entered into the store, he/she slipped and fell right before the guard. Of course, Publix accepted responsibility for its failure to act and keep the area dry.

Coming after a slip and fall, it is important to tell the supervisor about the occurrence even if you are not in severe pain. Do not be embarrassed to simply file the report. The majority of people do not realize the severity of the injury until later on in the day or the next morning. It is also crucial to recognize that there are cameras throughout the store, so the slip and fall will certainly be recorded on the video.

In conclusion, it is important to keep the shoes you were wearing at the time. Being in Florida, a number of my clients were wearing flip-flops when they fell. Publix may ask us to preserve those shoes or flip-flops to determine whether the tread was worn out.

Publix risk management in Lakeland, FL will likely have an incident report and the video at the time you present your claim. The Publix risk management department will be decent and try to resolve your claim without the filing of a lawsuit just as long as you and your attorneys are not penny pinching. I have personally observed that Publix does care about their customers and their reputation, so if you were hurt in one of their stores, they will try to make things right.
