Supermarket Accident Lawyer in Los Angeles
Is the Supermarket at Fault of Your Injury?
Grocery Stores are crowded much of the time. They can be prime sources for injuries with employees bustling to get their stocking and cleaning done and shoppers all over the aisles as well. Many stores are in need of repairs which poses potential risks and others are under construction which makes for dangerous conditions too. If you’ve been hurt in a grocery store, you are not alone.
Then there’s the possibility of contaminated food that you purchased or was given as a sample. If the grocery store is also a pharmacy, you’ve got potential risks there too. If you were injured in any way that involves a supermarket, you may be entitled to compensation.
Supermarkets and all other retainers have a responsibility to keep their shoppers safe and to make sure their premises free of danger. It is their duty and if they fail to keep you safe and you get hurt, they are legally accountable. Is a grocery store responsible for your injury? Only an expert in personal injury law is qualified to answer that question. Call the Law Offices of Jacob O. Partiyeli, let us know the details of your situation, and we’ll take care of the rest.
