Stop & Shop Slip and Fall Law in NYC

What are the Most Common Ways Slip and Fall Accidents Occur in Stop & Shop Grocery Stores in New York City?

When negligence is a factor, there is no limit to how slip and fall accidents and injuries in grocery stores can occur. Grocery store owners, including Stop & Shop operators, must exercise reasonable care in maintaining their premises.

This means taking precautions to prevent foreseeable accidents and ensuring that the store is reasonably safe for customers to navigate. When they don’t, people get hurt.

Some of the most common causes of Stop & Shop slip and fall accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Spills

Liquids like water, oil, or food can spill onto the floor from broken containers, leaking products, or overfilled displays. These spills create slippery surfaces that increase the risk of slipping and falling.

  • Wet Floors

Grocery store floors may become wet from cleaning activities, mopping, or tracked-in rainwater. Failure to promptly dry wet floors or provide warning signs can lead to slip and fall accidents.

  • Merchandise

Items displayed in aisles or on shelves can fall onto the floor, creating obstacles and tripping hazards for shoppers. Overstocked shelves or improperly stacked products increase the likelihood of items falling.

  • Improper Floor Maintenance

Neglecting to repair or maintain flooring surfaces can lead to hazards like cracked tiles, loose floorboards, torn carpeting, or uneven surfaces, which increase the risk of trips and falls.

  • Lack of Warning Signs

Failure to place warning signs in areas where hazards exist, such as wet floors or recently cleaned areas, can prevent shoppers from recognizing and avoiding potential dangers.

  • Inadequate Lighting

Poor lighting in certain store areas can obscure hazards and make it difficult for shoppers to see obstacles or changes in flooring elevation, increasing the risk of tripping and falling.

When Stop & Shop grocery stores are not constantly maintained, and hazards become part of the landscape, New Yorkers doing nothing more than their daily or weekly shopping pay the price. That is why we are here. To ensure all New Yorkers understand their legal rights and options to hold Stop & Shop liable for their negligence while pursuing the financial outcome they are entitled to for their injuries.
