When you need to run to the grocery store, you usually think nothing of it other than how quick you can get in and out. You may be a regular shopper at Publix, a grocery store with a good reputation.

You may have never thought about getting hurt at the grocery store, but there are many ways injuries can happen. Usually, the store’s staff work to keep their environment safe for customers, but sometimes their negligence gets people hurt.
Beginning in the parking lot, if they fail to ensure that the pavement is maintained and even, you could trip and fall. Also, if a parking lot is not well lit at night, you are much more likely to be the victim of a crime.
Inside the store, Slip and fall accidents are unfortunately common. If store employees fail to clean up a spill or fail to put appropriate signage up warning customers of slip risks, they could be setting someone up for a major injury. Just as dangerous are mats at the entrance of stores and throughout the different departments. If they bunch up, they could become a hazard.
Publix should have signs posted letting customers know to ask for help when they need something off of high shelves. If they don’t, or they fail to offer assistance when asked, customers could get hurt trying to retrieve items themselves.
All cleaning supplies and chemicals should be properly stored when not in use. If they aren’t, customers’ children could get into them and ingest them or get them on their skin.
Sometime stores stack displays too high and in an unstable manner. If they do this, they are putting customers at risk of falling items. You see this sometimes with soda or beer displays that tower over customers.
