Grocery Store Injuries
A grocery store is not only a convenient place to shop for needed items but also a highly interactive and social environment. More and more grocery stores are now offering specialty food items, prepared food, and all-natural or organic food. Some chains even have coffee shops and restaurants on-site with extensive indoor and outdoor seating. Grocery stores can be a one-stop shopping destination for goods ranging from produce and protein powder to hair and skin products. Mid-size to large grocery stores often employ up to hundreds of people to run and operate their complicated business.
This density of people and activity can create an environment where accidents that cause injury are likely to occur. If you have sustained injury as a result of the action or negligence of a grocery store employee, you may be eligible to receive payment for your injuries.

All it takes is for one employee or manager to be lax in their duties to create a high-risk environment for customers. Some hazardous situations include:
- Moving large boxes with heavy machinery
- Changing overhead lights or fixtures
- Failure to clean up spills or broken objects
- Improper shelving of supplies
- Obstruction of grocery aisles
As a customer, you have a reasonable expectation of safety when shopping for your groceries and other necessities. Do not let a grocery store employee�s negligence escape accountability.
If you or someone you love has been physically harmed while shopping in a grocery store, you may be entitled to financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. Contact the Waukesha personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874.
