New Jersey Supermarket Accident Attorney
Supermarkets, like all commercial establishments, have a duty to ensure that their premises are safe and free from dangerous conditions. If the supermarket fails to ensure that their premises are in a safe condition, and a person is injured as a result, the supermarket may be responsible for the harm caused.
The most common dangerous condition at a supermarket is a wet or slippery floor. A supermarket not only has a duty to clean up spills or dry a wet floor which became wet for a different reason; the supermarket also has a duty to inspect it’s premises for wet conditions. Obviously if the supermarket determines that a slippery floor exists, the supermarket must take steps to make sure the floor is immediately dried.
Another dangerous condition which may occur at a supermarket is a dangerous display. A dangerous display can be a display that is set up to display waters or another beverage, however, something in the display makes the display itself, unsafe. The display may be unsafe because it creates a tripping hazard or creates a risk that a person’s hand or foot may be caught in the display.
Finally, if a worker at a supermarket creates a dangerous condition, the supermarket may be liable for their workers dangerous conduct. This is known as the doctrine of respondent superior. Respondent superior essentially means that an employer, is liable for the dangerous condition which is created by one of their employees so long as the employee was acting within the scope of his or her employment.
