Retail & Grocery Store Accident Injury Lawyers
Injured in a retail store or supermarket? We can help you recover.
In the age of ecommerce and online sales, retail department stores and grocery supermarkets still enjoy a healthy flow of foot traffic. This suggests that, to some degree, people still largely like to get out of the house to see, touch, and smell their produce; and when it comes to clothing, trying on something to see if it fits well, often trumps the hassles of online returns. With such activity still prevalent, consumers and employees are often victims of accidents due to hazardous environments which retail and grocery stores have a duty to maintain and keep safe. Stores often fail to protect customers and employees in other ways also. Examples of such negligence might include:
- Security, such as when an overzealous security guard causes injury attempting to detain a suspected shoplifter
- Defective products that cause injury
- Falling objects that cause harm, from tumbling displays to snow or ice falling off a roof and injuring someone
- Runaway objects like shopping carts or scooters that cause injury
- Wet Floors, dangerous spills, or liquids on floors.
Most people don’t expect to get hurt in a retail store, but an accident can have a significant impact on your life. Carelessly placed displays, slippery floors, falling signs, and other hazards can cause serious harm. When an injury does happen, you may have to contend with frequent hospital and doctor visits. If the injury is serious enough, missing work and even the threat of losing your job are real possibilities.
At the same time, the store’s insurance company will likely try to minimize the compensation they pay out. Our team of retail store negligence injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A. understand your legal rights and are not only committed to getting you the maximum amount of compensation possible, but helping you recover from your injuries, so your life can return to normal as soon as possible.
Retail and Grocery Market Accident Liability Cases
Retail stores are often fun and entertaining, or just a good place to get what you need. Unfortunately, sometimes the things that we enjoy about stores can be dangerous—eye-catching displays can topple and injure a shopper, for example. Wet floors may cause you to slip and fall you when you’re searching the aisles for a product. Shopping carts and falling products may also cause injuries.
There are many kinds of accidents that can happen in a retail store. These include:
- Slip and Falls
- Head and body injuries from falling objects, dangerous displays, out-of-reach objects, etc.
- Shopping cart injuries
- Overcrowding injuries, such as trampling at a holiday sale
- Parking lot injuries, like those that result from broken parking stops or holes in the concrete.

The retail and grocery store negligence injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A. will take the time to thoroughly analyze the details of your case and work alongside you to find the most advantageous legal strategy to acquire the most compensation possible for your injuries.
Liability & Damage Recovery
Retail stores are responsible for maintaining a safe environment, so that customers and employees are not harmed. If store owners or managers ignore this duty, or put profits before people, unsuspecting shoppers can be harmed due to the negligent conduct of the store. The store is then liable for bodily injury that follows as a result of their negligence. If you have been hurt in a retail store accident, the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A. may be able to help you get the compensation that you are entitled to. Retail store negligence personal injury compensation may include:
- Hospital & Medical Bills
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
- Cost of Future Medical Care
Sometimes people wait for the store’s insurance company to contact them with an offer, but this isn’t a good strategy. Insurance agents and adjusters work on behalf of the insurance company—not you. They are not looking out for the store’s injured clients, and if they make an offer, it is likely lower than what you are entitled to for your injuries. It is essential that you never agree to or accept a settlement offer from an insurance company without first speaking with an experienced retail store personal injury attorney.
