Slip-and-fall accidents: Man files lawsuit after falling in store

New Jersey is home to a multitude of wonderful shopping and dining opportunities. Those who visit these public establishments should not have to be concerned for their safety. Every year, thousands of people across the country are injured in slip-and-fall accidents in stores and restaurants. In the state of New Jersey, business and property owners are required by law to provide a safe, hazard-free environment for all customers. Unfortunately, maintenance or cleaning duties in businesses are sometimes neglected, resulting in dangerous conditions for customers.

Recently, a man in another state filed a lawsuit over claims that he suffered injuries from a fall in a grocery store. According to the lawsuit, the man was shopping in the store and encountered a slippery substance that had spilled on the floor. The man said he believed the substance to be liquid soap and he slipped and fell after inadvertently stepping in it.

The plaintiff said that he suffered injuries to his back, head, hip and both shoulders due to the fall. The lawsuit alleged that an employee told the plaintiff that she was trying to find the trail of soap while another employee told the man to call the store's claims department. There was no warning of the dangerous condition, the lawsuit claimed. The plaintiff seeks monetary damages up to $100,000 as well as all just relief.

In New Jersey, the safety of customers is the responsibility of property and business owners. Slip-and-fall accidents can result in serious and permanent injuries. Those who are injured due to the negligence of property or business owners may want to consider discussions with a legal representative. By filing a lawsuit, victims and families could receive financial relief to replace lost wages and pay medical expenses.
