Winn Dixie has been around for nearly 100 years, so it is no surprise that you are used to shopping there. Your parents and grandparents probably did, too. When you go to a Winn Dixie, you expect the store to be safe. The last thing you expect is to get injured.
Unfortunately, if store managers or employees fail to perform their jobs correctly, they could be putting their customers in danger. If you need a Winn Dixie accident lawyer, the Dante Law Firm is ready to step in. We will analyze your case to determine your next steps.
We recognize that Winn Dixie takes steps to ensure their customers are safe. That’s their duty. We also know that not every manager and employee will perform their jobs correctly all the time. While they may not think their negligence will cause anyone to be harmed, they are wrong.
Slip and fall accidents are common in supermarkets, but they shouldn’t be. If a spill occurs, employees should clean it up quickly and put up “wet floor” signs that warn customers of a possible hazard. If they fail to do this, customers could fall and seriously injure themselves.
Falling items can also pose a hazard. If a shelf is broken, it could cause heavy items to come flying off the shelf. There should also be signs telling customers to seek assistance when they need an item off of a higher shelf. If there aren’t, and customers try to reach them, they could become injured.
Chemicals should be used by employees only and then properly stored away from customers. Some cleaning chemicals can hurt people if they touch them. Children could get into and ingest anything that is left out. Along those lines, any hazardous chemical for sale should be properly stored so children cannot get into them.
Floor mats are often used in produce and dairy areas as well as in the store entrances. If these are bunched up or are slippery, they can cause people to fall.
Parking lots should be well maintained, with no broken or cracked pavement that could cause customers to fall. Also, the whole property should be well lit when the store is open during the night time so that any criminal behavior is deterred.
