Experienced Wegmans Slip And Fall Accident & Injury Attorneys in New York City, NY

In Need of a Wegmans Slip and Fall Accident & Injury Lawyer?

At David Resnick & Associates, P.C., our New York City personal injury attorneys know that grocery stores are integral to the health and well-being of our ManhattanQueensBrooklynStaten Island, the Bronx, and Long Island communities.

While some markets come and go, Wegmans Food Markets, Inc., has been a mainstay in New York since 1916. Wegmans is a privately held American supermarket chain headquartered in Gates, New York. Today, Wegmans has 109 stores in eight states and 50 in New York.

The largest Wegmans store was in DeWitt, New York, and measured about 139,900 square feet. Its smallest store is in East Rochester, New York, on Fairport Road, and measures 52,910 square feet. This is also the oldest store still operating without a facade update, having opened in 1958.

While Wegmans continues to open new grocery stores throughout New York, the age of some of its establishments can cause significant harm. Over time, older grocery stores’ flooring and other surfaces may become worn, uneven, or damaged. Cracks, holes, or uneven surfaces can increase the risk of trips and falls.

Older grocery stores may have outdated infrastructure, including inadequate lighting, narrow aisles, or steep ramps, which can increase the risk of accidents. Poor lighting can make it difficult for customers to see potential hazards on the floor, while narrow aisles can lead to overcrowding and collisions.

If you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident at a Wegmans in New York City, contact our dedicated personal injury attorneys today and allow us to put our two decades of experience producing results for our clients to work for you, starting with a free consultation.

Wegmans Slip and Fall Accident & Injury Law

Who Can Be Held Liable For Slip and Fall Accidents and Injuries in Wegmans Grocery Stores in New York City?

Determining liability for slip and fall accidents and injuries in grocery stores typically depends on the specific circumstances of each case.

However, some of the most common parties that may be held liable for slip and fall accidents and injuries at Wegmans include:

  • Grocery Store Owners or Operators

Grocery store owners or operators are primarily responsible for maintaining safe premises. They have a duty to regularly inspect the premises, identify potential hazards, and take reasonable steps to address them. If a hazardous condition exists and the store fails to correct it or adequately warn customers, it may be liable for any resulting injuries.

  • Employees

Store employees have a duty to exercise reasonable care in performing their duties and ensuring customers’ safety. If an employee’s negligence, such as failing to clean up a spill promptly or improperly stacking merchandise, contributes to a slip and fall accident, the store may be held vicariously liable for the employee’s actions.

  • Property Managers or Landlords

In some cases, the property manager or landlord of the grocery store premises may share liability for slip and fall accidents if they were responsible for maintenance or repairs that could have prevented the hazardous condition.

  • Maintenance Companies

If the grocery store contracts with a maintenance company to handle cleaning, repairs, or other upkeep tasks, the company may be liable if its negligence causes a slip-and-fall accident.

  • Third Parties

Third parties may also be liable for slip-and-fall accidents in grocery stores in certain situations. For example, if a customer intentionally creates a hazard by spilling a liquid and fails to report it, they may be held liable for any resulting injuries.

Determining liability in a slip and fall case requires a thorough investigation into the accident’s circumstances, including who knew or should have known about the hazardous condition, whether reasonable steps were taken to address it, and whether the injured party’s actions contributed to the accident.
