Speak up after an injury on a business' premises in New Jersey

When walking into a grocery store, you don't expect anything bad to happen. You probably just want to get a few items for food for the week and get out. Most people plan their trips a few times a month, so they are familiar with the store, too. Still, despite knowing the store and the surroundings, injuries can still happen while you're there.

Retail stores can be dangerous for consumers if they aren't repaired and managed correctly. Leaving wet floors unmarked, for instance, can lead to a person slipping on the water and injuring him- or herself. Partitions and half-sized walls can be dangerous, too, especially if they are short enough to pose a tripping hazard. Because consumers focus on the shelving and sales, they aren't usually looking down at the floor. That means that slick and dangerous areas that could be avoided won't be, simply because you won't see them coming.

It's the business' responsibility to check its floors and shelving carefully to make sure visitors won't be injured. If you discover that you've cut yourself on sharp edges left exposed or have slipped and hit your head on a wet floor, you have every right to complain and make a claim against the company. In some cases, you could have a right to compensation for your injury.

Our site has more information on premises liability and what you should expect from a company after you've been injured due to its negligence. It's important to bring your case to light, so business owners know they have to be proactive in keeping their businesses safe for those who shop there.
