Liability of Stores for Accidents

Store employees cannot prevent every accident from occurring on store grounds, and the law does not expect them to. However, store management must ensure that reasonable inspections take place to look for potential hazards. Once a hazard is discovered, the store has a duty to warn customers.

For instance, if a liquid spills on the floor, the store may not be liable for damages if a customer immediately slips and falls. However, if several minutes go by and no one comes by to notice and place a “wet floor” sign, then the store may have to pay.

If the store is liable, they will have to pay damages to make the victim whole. That includes hospital and doctor’s bills, lost wages, compensation for pain and suffering and any other expense incurred due to the store’s negligence.
