People injured in Publix can confidently turn to this Fort Lauderdale Publix Accident Lawyer. Accidents in Publix occur all of the time, and injuries can result. If the accident is the fault of Publix, you may have a personal injury case.
A personal injury case against Publix would be referred to as a premises liability case. Premises liability refers to a situation wherein you are injured on the property of another person or entity due to the fault of the other person or entity. The key is that the accident must have been the fault of the other person or entity. For example, if you trip over your own shoes in Publix, the grocery store won’t be responsible simply because you fell in the store. Publix must have been at fault itself in some way.

Premises liability cases include slip and fall and trip & fall accidents. There are several departments in Publix in which objects or fluids can end up on the floor. For example, the produce department and dairy department are areas where slip & fall and trip and fall accidents can and do occur.
In a slip and fall accident, the key is to prove that the dangerous condition (i.e., whatever you slipped on) was either a) known by Publix or its employees (i.e., “actual knowledge”) or that it had been there long enough that Publix or its employees should have known about it (i.e., “constructive knowledge”). After all, if another customer had just created the dangerous condition only minutes before your fall (for example, by dropping water on the ground), then there would have been no way for Publix to know of the dangerous condition. Again, Publix isn’t responsible simply because an accident occurred in the store. Publix will only be responsible if it did something wrong to cause or allow the accident (for example, by leaving the dangerous condition in the store).
There are several ways to prove that a dangerous condition must have existed in the store long enough for Publix to know about it. For example, if water on the floor was dirty or had track marks or foot prints in it, that might be sufficient evidence to prove that the water had existed on the floor for sufficient time that Publix should have known about it. Surveillance videos also may reveal the length of time a dangerous condition had existed.This Broward County Publix Accident Law Firm Assists those Hurt in Publix
Trip and fall accidents also occur in Publix. Trip & fall accidents typically involve more permanent structures (i.e., “fixtures”) in the store. For example, a customer might trip over stairs in a store that were built dangerously or not up to code. When this happens, it might be the property’s landlord that is responsible rather than the tenant. After all, the tenant might not have the legal ability to make changes to permanent structures in the building such as stairs.
Publix may be the renter/tenant of one of the buildings it uses (rather than the actual property owner). When a trip and fall accident occurs, it would then be the owner of the building (rather than Publix itself) that would be responsible. It’s therefore important to contact Mr. Quackenbush as quickly as possible so that he can attempt to determine this.
